Pumpkin bundt cake:
1 yellow cake mix (I like the new Splenda mixes with half the calories.)
3 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1 cup water
1 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice

Mix for 3-5 minutes, getting lots of air into the batter and stirring the pumpkin in throughly. Grease your bundt pan — I like the Pam baking spray. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Pour in pan and shake sides so the batter spreads evenly. Bake on the top rack of the oven for 35-40 minutes. Cake should be brown on top when removed and should remain in pan for five minutes to continue cooking. This cake will be moist (hate that word), and delicious –a yummy combo of pumpkin pie and spice cake. I added a cinnamon/powdered sugar glaze that was easy and added a kick of spice.

  1. Yummy – perhaps this will be next on my pumpkin baking extravaganza I’ve been having lately! šŸ™‚

    DELISH. šŸ™‚

  2. What a good idea!! I actually got Pumpkin Spice Eggnog at the store yesterday. Pumpkin has arrived, and I am so very happy (and getting fatter by the day). šŸ™‚

  3. Um…yeah. Let’s just say I’m excited you have such a delicious pumpkin bundt cake recipe because, well, you’ll see.

  4. Yum! Just what I need in my life – more cake. Oh, wait. What was I saying last night? Lose 30 lbs. by July? Maybe I’ll start after I devour this.

  5. That’s funny that you don’t like the word ‘moist’ because I had a roommate once that hated that word too. How do you feel about ‘tendril’? šŸ™‚

  6. This looks SO good!

  7. Beautiful cake, Kelli, it looks scrumptious. Thank you so much for sharing your photos and the recipe.

  8. Kelli, you make me hungry! Thanks for the recipe!

  9. I want to eat that. Right. Now.

  11. That looks soo good..
    Thanks for the comment..I saw “Big Fish” when it came out in theaters..that’s been a while, what, four or five years? I don’t think I really “got it” at the time..haha..
    also, i just clicked on your blogger profile, and “Mary Poppins”? Love It.

  12. This looks so yum!
    And easy. And I didn’t even know there was Splenda cake mixes. Cool!

  13. Ok, I’m finally going to try one of your recipes. This thing was more than yummy. I LOVE moist cakes.

  14. I love the platter. That is pretty.

  15. I must try this:)

  16. I love this type of recipe. I make it with any flavor cake mix–chocolate is very good too–4 eggs, half a cup of buttermilk, a third of a cup of oil, 1 cup of pumpkin and the pie spices. Very moist, very yummy too.

  17. I just can’t read your website if I’m the least bit hungry. It’s torture. You’re quite the baker!

  18. I haven’t tried the Splenda cake mixes yet. I’ll try them out based on your recommendation!

  19. YUM!! I think the bundt cake shape just totally makes this cake all the much better! I bought pumpkin today so I could make this sometime this week.
