Reviews forMoist Pumpkin Bundt Cake
"Great recipe! All I did extra was I added 2 grated orange peels to 2 cups white sugar to 1/2 cup dark brown sugar and mixed that into the sugar mixture until throughly fragrant. I let that stand while I grated 1 cinnamon stick, 1/4 teas. Of Cardamon,1/2 teas.of fresh grated nutmeg, 2 teas. of pumpkin pie spice, 1 teas. of Organic Roasted Saigon Cinnamon which is the most incredible spice of all. I also did half baking soda and half baking powder. The batter was heavenly and as I put it in the bundt pan I sprinkled a little brown sugar and cinnamon on top. Popped it in the oven and I am waiting for it to finish baking and then I am going to add a orange glaze icing on top. Yummy!!!!! #RulatheRed"
"I would give this 10 stars. The only thing I might add next time is a caramel sauce, or maybe some kind of hard sauce."
"I was so excited about this recipe. I followed the advice of other reviewers and only used 1/4 tsp of nutmeg. I added an extra 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. It smelled fantastic while baking but I was very disappointed with the bland taste after it cooled. I even tried adding a caramel glaze that I love and the cake still was nothing special. I won't be making this again."
"Brought to meeting, there was none left and people asked for the recipe :)Like it with pumpkin pie spice blend."
"Would it be possible to make this in the Harvest Loaf pan from Nordic Ware? It would be so gorgeous with the pumpkins,acorns and pine cones on top. Thanks in advance"
"This cake was so good that I created a login just to give it five stars. I used store bought pumpkin pie spice instead of the other spices, about 2.5 teaspoons, and it was perfect. I made a glaze with confectioners sugar, milk, vanilla, and just a dash of the spice and it was absolutely heavenly. I had to bake it for 67 minutes, but that left a nice crust on the bottom and no underdone spots. I'll be taking this to my next potluck."
"This cake is amazing! So, why the 4 starts instead of five? Because it is amazing IF made with pumpkin pie spice instead of the spices calles for. FYI to the people who can "taste the baking soda". It is not baking soda you are tasting. It is nutmeg. Nutmeg contains saponin and should never be used in such a proportion as is called for in this recipe. Nutmeg is a wonderful, versatile spice, but it must be used with restraint. So, definitely try this recipe. By substituting PPS, you will be most please and the result will be a 5 star cake!"
