Pumpkin Bundt Cake

I was looking through my mom’s recipe binder and found this single pumpkin cake recipe (she wasn’t a fan of pumpkin–there are at least 3 versions of any other baked good you could think of). So I gave it a go (with a few modifications), and I’d call it a great success! It certainly hit the fall warm and spicy spot. I like it just as it is, but you can also try icing it with Cream Cheese Frosting or Simple Chocolate Icing!

Total time (including baking): 1 hour 30 minutes. Makes one large bundt cake.

Materials: 2 mixing bowls; measuring vessels; beaters; large bundt cake pan. Missing materials or ingredients? Look here.
