Caramel Pecan Pumpkin Bundt Cake


What’s not to like? Dense moist pumpkin cake with all the luverly spices you would expect top it all off with my mom’s Never Fail Caramel Frosting, yes, please and thank you very much!  I’m pretty sure I’m not alone when I say…



IMG_9397This cake is so easy, there’s nothing tricky of fussy about it.

Walnuts also work really well in this recipe, and of course if you aren’t a fan of nuts then you can leave them out all together.

I think I’ve warned you about this frosting before.  It’s DangerOUS.  As in finger licken can’t stop tasting till the whole darn pan of frosting is gone….whoops!  Oh golly if you are a caramel fan, this frosting is going to be your new best friend enemy…frenemy. It’s so easy to make, and it never ever fails me. Ok I’ll stop goo goo gah gahing over the frosting and get on with the cake.  I love a bundt, I think there must be something nostalgic for me about a cake baked in a bundt pan.  However, if you don’t happen to have a bundt pan a regular ol’ 9×13 sheet cake pan will work just fine.


IMG_9411You might just want to put on a pot-a-Joe….this cake screams for a cup!

    Girl!!!!! This is insane. It’s so gorgeous, I want to lick the screen right here and now. Not really but I do wish I had a slice to go with the last bit of my coffee. Or even better, a slice sitting at your counter!

    May I ask what kind of spatula that is that you used for apple spice frosting?
    Looks like it would be great for spreading frosting.

      you will love it my baking friend! My kids usually never like nuts in cakes or muffins and they chowed this one right down!

    I made this cake today and I LOVE it! I thought it was going to be much sweeter than it is. It will work great for my family’s taste, but I think I would definitely use your Caramel Frosting to take it somewhere for a dessert… Next time I think I’ll make it in the 9×13 pan… my bundt pan is too small…. or maybe I should just go buy another one! hahahaha

      Melissa, yes the cake on it’s own is not overly sweet, the caramel frosting adds that extra sweetness. I think if I made it on its own I might add an extra 1/2 cup of sugar to the batter. Thanks for stopping in! Sheila

    You make me laugh! I will be making the cake to take to the family get together at Thanksgiving. I may need to make a “test run” first know just to check it out and all!

    Barbara C :

    The “trial run” cake went over well at Bible study. I think it’s a definite keeper. It’s easy to put together and forgiving. I was trying to do two things at once and thought the recipe called for baking powder and soda! 1 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp baking soda work just fine. I toasted the pecans and that went well with the Caramel Frosting. No mum in the middle though, this time!

    Hello, super excited to try this recipe. Question: have you ever made it in cupcake or layer form? If so, how did it turn out? Thanks!

      Sheila :

      I have not, but I’m sure it would be just as good! Of course you would have to adjust the baking time. Thanks for stopping by;) Enjoy!
