Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Cinnamon Glaze

Fall is here and that means we get to make pumpkin with no regrets. If you’re looking for a new recipe to make, then this Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Cinnamon Glaze is just what you need in your life.

I feel as though there are a lot of pumpkin cake recipes out there, which is why I decided to try something a little different. Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Cinnamon Glaze is a little more in-depth than your typical cake recipes, but it’s worth every step. The better you read the instructions and take your time, the better your cake will turn out.

This is one pumpkin recipe that I will make a couple of at a time. I like to have one for us and one for a friend, sometimes we eat both in less than 24 hours. I think the beautiful thing about this cake is that you can eat it for breakfast or as a snack and no one will be judging you. It’s a bundt cake that is delicious all the time.

What is Pumpkin Puree?

One question I get about this recipe is about pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie mix. The reason people use pumpkin puree instead of pumpkin pie mix is that there is nothing extra in it.

only want to use pumpkin puree in this recipe because it doesn’t have anything added, no extra sugar or spices, nothing. It’s simply cooked and mashed for you to use in all of your delicious baking.

Pumpkin puree is also used for breads, soups, muffins, and anything else you need for baking. Pumpkin pie mix is good for pumpkin pies, but when it comes to a pumpkin bundt cake, you need to stick with pumpkin puree.

Do You Need a Bundt Pan?

If you’re going to make Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Cinnamon Glaze, you’re going to need a bundt cake pan. The good news is that bundt cakes don’t cost very much!

However, if you don’t have a bundt cake pan, there are some alternatives. Some people will use loaf pans, instead of the traditional bundt pan. If you have a deep circular pan, you can also use that.

I know you really want to know the flavor of this cake. Don’t worry, it’s so delicious. I would describe it as being very light and moist. The flavor of the pumpkin is so good in this cake. The added cinnamon glaze is literally the icing on the cake.

When I make a bundt cake, I need to have a good glaze on it. You’ll see how amazing this cake is with the proper glaze. And the fact that it’s homemade is even better! If you’ve never had a bundt cake with cinnamon glaze, this cake is for you.

Why is Pumpkin Such a Popular Fall Flavor?

I have had so many people as me why pumpkin is such a popular fall flavor. Since fall is the time in which the pumpkin harvest comes in, it only makes sense that people are ready to dig into this delicious fall harvest option.

Back in the day of the pilgrims, pumpkins were a major food source and not just something they put in cakes and other baked goodies. Today we have the option of making cakes out of pumpkin, but in the past, it’s been a major food option for early American settlers.

I hope you’re excited to make this Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Cinnamon Glaze. It’s the perfect dessert for fall and a nice way to celebrate the cool autumn weather headed our way!
