Spiced Pumpkin Cake - Good Cheap Eats

Fall is almost here! I know, it’s still hot in lots of places. But, fall foods are heading our way. I’ve got the apples that the love of my life brought back, and I’ve been experimenting with pumpkin recipes. Yum!

The first new pumpkin item of the season got devoured pretty quickly at our house: Spiced Pumpkin Cake with Maple Glaze.

The cake comes together quickly and easily; so does the glaze. It’s not overly sweet, so without the glaze, it’s more like a bread. The glaze makes it dessert. Do with it what you will.

Pumpkin Cake with Maple Glaze


I love bundt pans. They remind me of the bake sales and the Cake Walk back at Rosedell Elementary where I attended first through sixth grades. I won a lemon cake once. I was thrilled.

Anyone you make this cake for will be thrilled, too.

  1. Oh my. This looks delicious. Would anything need to be adjusted in the recipe to be able to bake it in a rectangular cake pan or round layer pans rather than a bundt pan?

  2. I think I gained 2 pounds just looking at the picture! It looks wonderful!

  3. Yum! I’m starting to crave all things pumpkin!

  4. yum! i won a cake in a cake walk at church once as a kid. so fun 🙂

  5. This cake is so yummy and easy to make. I’m bringing it to knitting tonight!
