Pumpkin Cake with Maple Glaze

This past weekend I couldn't wait any longer and I finally broke out the pumpkin! I made our all time favorite pumpkin cake. Normally we make this as a layer cake with cream cheese frosting, but this time I made it as a bundt cake and drizzled it with maple glaze, SO GOOD!

Pumpkin Cake with Maple Glaze
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree or cooked mashed pumpkin
Maple Glaze: 
  • 2 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 3-4 Tbsp. milk
  • 2 1/2-3 Tbsp. maple syrup

For the cake: Combine sugar, vegetable oil, and eggs in a large mixing bowl; mix well. Sift dry ingredients into a separate bowl; stir into oil mixture, beating well. Stir in pumpkin puree.

Pour batter into bundt pan. Bake at 350° for about 60 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. Cool for about 10 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto rack to cool completely. 

For the glaze: Mix sugar, maple syrup, and maple flavoring in a bowl with a whisk until smooth and drizzle over cooled cake. 

Serve with coffee or tea and enjoy!
