I realize that there have been a lot of baking posts recently. Most of which involve pumpkin, pecans or both. Well why not?? These delicious concoctions are the epitome of fall comfort baking and this is the perfect dessert recipe to make family or friends for the upcoming holidays. This Pumpkin Pecan Cake with Pecan Glaze is now my favorite go to fall entertaining dessert.
In my early baking days I never gravitated towards Bundt cakes, not sure why. Maybe it was just a reminder of some not so tasty holiday fruit cakes made in Bundt pans from my childhood. I eventually overcame my dislike of Bundt cakes and I am so glad I did. So many beautiful and tasty cakes have been enjoyed since giving into the Bundt pan phenomenon.
This cake is so super moist you guys and full of fall deliciousness! I don’t know about you but there is nothing worse than biting into a piece cake that looks delicious but is dry and just crumbles apart. Come on we have all had that experience, am I right? Well not with this recipe! This cake is rich, and dense yet super moist due to the pumpkin puree and infused with fall spices.
Now let’s talk about this glaze for a minute shall we. Not only is it super easy to make with just three ingredients, it envelops the cake and pools at the base. Creating wonderful pools of sugary pecan goodness. It is a thing of beauty all of that drippy, ooey gooey glaze goodness.
I like to warm my piece of cake up in the microwave for about ten seconds and enjoy that glazed deliciousness with a nice cup of coffee in the morning. Not the best breakfast but HEY, you gotta enjoy life!
