Pumpkin Spice Cake Recipe

This super easy recipe starts with a Yellow Cake Mix and adding 1 tablespoon of your favorite pumpkin spices. Our selections include cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. (Cloves are also a great option.) Of course it would not be Pumpkin Cake without adding pumpkin puree! For more flavor, orange juice is added as a compliment to the pumpkin puree. To ensure we have a moist cake, sour cream is part of our recipe. And of course, eggs and vanilla is part of the cake. Mix it all up then pour into prepared bundt pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 35 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes before removing from the bundt pan.

Once the cake is cool, drizzle a simple glaze. In a small bowl, cream a little butter and add Confectioners’ Sugar. Depending upon desired consistency add milk and orange juice. You can easily change this glaze to include different flavors or even change to a cream cheese base topping. Serve with a side of ice cream, homemade whipped topping or a caramel sauce. Regardless if you purchase or make the topping, this Pumpkin Cake is excellent! And do not wait for fall to enjoy as this is wonderful any time of the year.

  1. I loved reading your recipe for pumpkin cake using cake mix! It can be so useful sometimes when you are short on time or need to use a cake mix before it expires.
    I actually made brownies using cake mix too and they turned out amazing! Hope you like them as much as I liked your recipe 🙂
