Pumpkin Angel Food Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
Here's an easy way to jazz up an angel food cake mix using canned pumpkin, nutmeg and other spices. I like to serve pieces with a dollop of whipped topping and a sprinkling of cinnamon. —Pamela Overton of Charleston, Illinois

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Fold a fourth of the batter into pumpkin mixture; gently fold in the remaining batter. Gently spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through batter with a knife to remove air pockets.
  2. Bake on the lowest oven rack at 350° for 38-44 minutes or until top is golden brown and cake springs back when lightly touched and entire top appears dry. Immediately invert pan; cool completely, about 1 hour.
  3. Run a knife around side and center tube of pan. Remove cake to a serving plate. Garnish each slice with 1 tablespoon whipped topping; sprinkle with cinnamon if desired. Yield: 14 servings.

MY REVIEW

Mine did not get the height as the one in the photo. I used pumpkin pie spice - 1 1/2 Tablespoons - since that is what I had. Turned out more like gingerbread cake with a little more poof. All in all, not bad. Not impressive, but not bad.

MY REVIEW

I followed the directions but my cake came out very dense and didn't cook all the way. I tried putting it back in for a bit, but it just wasn't right. I may have to give another try. My hubby said it's okay and that he'll eat it, but it wasn't a hit.

I use pumpkin pie spice instead of all the others (same thing only different) and I've been making it for the past 3 years. I make some for myself and some I give as gifts. It's not too sweet, not too heavy. A very nice "light" option for desert or snack.

Sorry to say I thought this was terrible. My husband didn't care for it either. I added a cream cheese icing which helped some but I tossed most of it.

This recipe was a hit!!! I've taken it to two different parties and each time I've been asked to share the recipe. Will definitely keep this one!!
