Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Caramel Glaze
- 1 1/2 cups oil (coconut, canola, etc.)
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 15-oz can pumpkin
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 TBSP cinnamon
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup + 3 TBSP chopped walnuts
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a bundt cake pan with non-stick baking cooking spray. (You can use regular cooking spray but I love the baking blends because they work really well for bundt cakes. And there’s nothing worse that baking a bundt cake and having it stick in the pan at the end!)
Combine oil, sugar, eggs, pumpkin and spices in a mixing bowl. Add in dry ingredients and mix well, until smooth. Add in 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and stir just until combined.
Pour batter into prepared bundt cake pan. Bake for 1 hour, checking at 45 minutes and every 5 minutes thereafter for darkening. If cake looks too dark, cover loosely with foil until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Cool for at least 20 minutes. Overturn bundt cake onto a plate.
To make the caramel glaze: Combine butter, brown sugar and whipping cream into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for about 3 minutes. Whisk in powdered sugar and boil, whisking constantly, another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit about 10 minutes to cool. Whisk just before pouring onto cake. Top with remaining 3 TBSP chopped walnuts, if desired.
Tip: I personally think most bundt cakes are better if made a day or two before serving, so that the flavors meld. I like to make my bundt cake at least the night before, then just put a clean cloth over the top of the pan to cover it slightly and let it cool overnight. The next day, overturn it onto a plate and top with the glaze. If you use coconut oil it not only adds a nice flavor but it makes the cake super non-stick!
