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

"I made this using pumpkin pie spice. I also cooked it in a 9 x 13 pan rather than a tube pan. It was very tasty. It would also taste good with a cream cheese icing."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 28, 2013

"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
Reviewed Oct. 28, 2013

"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."
