Pumpkin cake. Cream cheese frosting. Fall spices.

It’s pretty much everything I’ve ever wanted and more, because pumpkin = Christmas feelings and I literally just can’t contain my excitement that the holidays (and boot season!) are approaching (hopefully–it was 104 yesterday, so beyond wanting to die, I’m reallllly ready for cold weather).

This cake is pretty much fall in a bundt.

This classic fall dessert is full of pumpkin flavor, cinnamon spice, and rich cream cheese! It is absolutely Heavenly. This cake is a fall classic, and it’s something I try to make annually. I’m pretty sure I missed last year, but I’ve definitely eaten enough of this in the present to make up for missing last year.

I know I definitely made it the year before, because it was back in the beginning stages of my blog, back when it was under a different name and I shared, like, 1 recipe each month with my reader, aka, my mom, and I made this cake, photographed it outside on the brightest day known to man, and was so ashamed of my iPhone pictures that I couldn’t actually bring myself to post it.

I spared you all. No need to thank me for my selflessness.

This classic fall dessert is full of pumpkin flavor, cinnamon spice, and rich cream cheese! It is absolutely Heavenly. I think you should probably make this.

Ingredients

    Cake
  • 1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 15oz can pure pumpkin (such as Libby's)
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp all spice
  • Cream Cheese Glaze
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 cup + 1-2 Tbsp heavy cream (milk is fine)
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup powdered sugar, depending upon your preference
  • Topping
  • Cinnamon, if desired

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a bundt cake pan well.
  2. Cream together oil, applesauce, sugar, brown sugar, and pumpkin. Once combined, add in eggs, one at a time. Add in vanilla extract.
  3. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice.
  4. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet. Once combined, pour batter into the bundt cake pan, making sure it is evenly distributed.
  5. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes, then remove from pan and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
  6. Glaze
  7. Mix cream cheese and 1/4 cup of heavy cream together, until well combined. Add in powdered sugar, beginning with 1/2 cup. Depending upon your preference of how thick or thin you want the glaze, add in the last 1/4 cup of powdered sugar, and/or the last 2 Tbsp of heavy cream.
  8. Pour glaze over cooled cake and sprinkle with extra cinnamon, if desired.
  9. Enjoy the cake at room temperature or cold (I prefer it cold, but room temperature would taste fine as well!)

    Made this tonight for dessert. It’s delicious and gorgeous! It’s incredibly moist and pumpkin-y. I only altered the glaze, only because it tasted too much like plain cream cheese for me, so I added a bit more sugar and a splash of vanilla. My 3 year old got to help make and decorate it and my husband it taking some to work tomorrow. I’ll definitely be making that again, thanks!

    Oh my gosh – got a bundt cake pan and this was the first cake we made in it. Whipped it up with the kids and the end result was pure deliciousness (and I’m particular!!!). Cake was SUPER moist – did not have the entire 1/2c applesauce, so did nearly 1/2 and a teaspoon of butter. Also had to make our own brown sugar with pure molasses because we ran out of that too. And instead of the all spice and nutmeg, did 1/2tsp Pumpkin pie Spice…the result was AMAZING !!!
