Pumpkin Bundt Cake
This Pumpkin Bundt Cake is a perfect fall dessert! It’s moist, pumpkin-y and spicy…all the things a fall cake should be.
I have a serious love for Bundt cakes as I’m sure you can tell, I just can’t stop…I won’t stop. The pans are too fun (not to mention pretty) to cook with! There are some amazing pans out there that I’m dying to get my hands on… So far on the blog I’ve shared Bundt recipes for peach, lemon, carrot pumpkin, eggnog, coconut, Earl Grey tea, caramel apple and now pumpkin. I had to make a pumpkin one because it wouldn’t be fall without pumpkininallthethings!
Tastes like fall.
This Pumpkin Bundt Cake tastes like fall…pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, nutmeg. It tastes as good as it looks, it’s moist, pumpkin-y and spicy…all the things a fall cake should be.
To Ice or Not to Ice?
Be still my heart, look at this cake. In all it’s swirly pumpkin gloriousness. It’s so pretty you don’t even need to ice it…just give it a little dusting of icing sugar once the cake has cooled, then top slices with whipped cream. That’s all you need.
Perfect for Thanksgiving!
Or any time. Is there a wrong time for Pumpkin Bundt Cake? I think not.
So dust off that Bundt pan and get baking…you’ll be glad you did.
Pumpkin Bundt Cake Recipe Tips:
- Pumpkin: Use pure pumpkin for this cake, NOT pie filling.
- Try it with homemade pureed pumpkin: If you want to use homemade/fresh pumpkin puree (which you don’t need to at all), visit my post here to see how to make it.
- Optional Additions: Feel free to add 1/3 cup raisins or walnuts to this recipe.
- Baking Pan Size: I used a 10-12 cup size pan for this recipe.
- Prepare your Bundt pan before baking. I like to either coat the pan then dust it with flour, or use a flour/oil spray.
- This cake is so pretty it doesn’t even need frosting! I like to give it a little dusting of icing sugar once it cools.

I haven’t done any cooking with pumpkin but would love to try this recipe. Is the pure pumpkin a pie pumpkin that’s been roasted? Thank you!
Hi Jennifer! You can certainly use roasted pumpkin pure, but most of the time I just use canned pure pumpkin! Happy Baking!

Love that pan! Is that a regular bundt pan?
What did you put on the top? Cinnamon Sugar or plain sugar? Did you do it after it cooled?
Hi Lisa! I just sprinkled it with confectioner’s sugar after it had cooled. But cinnamon sugar would be delicious!!
Love your enthusiasm. Keep up the good work.
