Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Cinnamon Glaze

11 reviews / 5 average

Sometimes, I get distracted while I’m taking pictures.  Like when I take pictures of Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Cinnamon Glaze.

When there’s cinnamon glaze all over your fingers and pumpkin cake crumbs at the corners of your mouth and your mind is in food heaven instead of photography set-up mode… well, you end up with three very similar (ok, um, almost identical) pictures.

Forgive me?

I know you will forgive me, though, because I am giving you the most awesome recipe for a baked fall treat.

First of all, it’s delicious and makes your house smell like a pumpkin-cinnamon wonderland.

Second of all, it’s amazingly light!  And I don’t mean light and fluffy, although it’s a little bit of that, too.  The light I’m talking about it the one where you feel skinny when you’re done eating it.

Third of all, it’s incredibly easy to make that it’s almost embarrassing.  Like, cheater easy.  Which is exactly why I made it yesterday and now have only 5 slices left.  Out of 16.

Good thing it’s light?

    Before I read your post, I was thinking how much I liked the photos so I’m more than happy to look at three similar pictures especially when it looks so delicious!

    I know what you mean about the photo shoot. I was taking one yesterday of a loaf of bread and I was eager enough to try it that I said, “Ah, screw it” and just munched on the hero piece while I was shooting the rest of it. 🙂

    I’ve gotten random crumbs and sauces and batters all over my poor camera before, but I think my biggest challenge is that I’m usually hungry and want to put whatever I’m photographing in my face ASAP! Your cake looks absolutely scrumptious.

    It is light! I love the nutrition facts on this one. I’ve been making a lot of heavier desserts lately, and now definitely need to add this one to the list. PS: I have a hard time photographing food when I’m too excited to eat it. Sometimes I make my husband help set up the photo 🙂

      It’s nice to throw a light dessert in there every once in a while, you know, between the cheesecake and peanut butter pie.

    A pumpkin cinnamon wonderland is sooo where I want to be right now. I’m glad you’ve shown me how to get there 🙂

    There’s nothing that I love more than an easily justified dessert. I can’t believe this isn’t 400 calories a slice. Awesome. I’m making it!

    This is almost like a pound cake – it’s delicious! I doubled the frosting recipe, because the purpose of cake is to hold frosting! 😉

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      I actually did, too, accidentally, because the first batch that I made was way too runny and just ran off the sides of the cake. 🙂 Double frosting is the way to go!

    After catching up on your website (yes, it has been weeks or months since I have been here!), I think this weekend may call for a Lindsay Mork Recipe Marathon ! Can’t wait to get baking…and eating 🙂 Just noticed I wrote Mork instead of Ostrom. Don’t worry. Old habits die hard. I still have Sandy Abraham as Vavra on my cell phone !

      Oh, Adie! So fun to get a comment from you. 🙂 And Sandy Abraham/Vavra has been providing some good recipes for me in that church cookbook!

    I’ve totally done the same thing when taking photos! I just can’t wait to take more bites 🙂 hehe! This cake looks gorgeous! Before going gluten free, I made a chocolate cake the same way – delish!!!!

    I just made my second one of these in two days. (My bundt pan has never seen so much action in such a short amount of time.) Thanks again for another “keeper” recipe!

      Glad you liked it! I’ve been perusing my latest Jakky Packet Cookbook and I’m eyeing the Derby Pie. Dangerous.

    This is in the oven right now! Since my husband has a dairy allergy, I’m swapping the milk out for some spiced rum. Can’t wait to taste it!

    Made this for a birthday party today…I’m not even a big fan of cake, but this is amazing! It got rave reviews from everyone…and they even took pieces home for later. I used spiced apple cider instead of milk. So delicious…thanks!
