I feel like I should win an award for holding off on posting a pumpkin recipe until October. I feel like it’s been all over the place for over a month. I can say that I made this butterscotch pumpkin bundt cake a few weeks ago so I caved on the pumpkin love at home.

I’m not sure why but I almost never make bundt cakes. I’m always scared that I’m going to pop it out of the pan and the little jerk is going to crack in half. I pretty much jumped for joy when this thing easily just pop out of its pan.

Does this happen to anyone else? Am I the only one who fears the possible jerkiness of the bundt pan?

I kept this cake pretty simple but jazzed it up by throwing in some butterscotch morsels (use the good stuff!) and covered the top in a super creamy cream cheese frosting.

I then preceded to eat almost the whole cake. Well, that’s not true. I saved some for my husband but since he is one of those weird people who are happy with just one slice of cake I ate the rest.

I’m the worst.

I cannot be trusted when there is cake in the house. Especially when that cake is butterscotch pumpkin bundt cake.

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

Adapted from Barbara Bakes

Directions:

For cake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 12-cup bundt pan with non-stick spray.

In a medium mixing bowl add flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Whisk together and set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer add butter, sugar and brown sugar. Mix together until blended. The mixture will be thick.

Add in Greek yogurt, eggs and pumpkin puree. Mix to combine.

Slowly add in flour mixture until fully combined.

Fold in butterscotch chips and pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle of the cake.

Let the cake rest in the pan for 5 minutes and pop the cake out of the pan onto a wire cooling rack.

Once the cake is cooled cover in cream cheese glaze and devour.

For glaze:
In a mixer cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla bean paste and 1 tablespoon heavy cream.

Mix on low and add more cream until your reach your desired consistency. I like mine to be thick so it doesn't completely drip off. More of a frosting than a glaze.
