Pumpkin Spice Pound Cake Recipe

I enjoy baking from scratch and sharing my treats with others. This recipe for nicely spiced pumpkin pound cakes one I've come to rely on. It's impossible to resist a slice topped with the sweet walnut sauce.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1 hour 5 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 2-3/4 cups sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • WALNUT SAUCE:
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture alternately with pumpkin, beating just until combined.
  • 2. Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 65-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing form pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • 3. For sauce, combine brown sugar, cream, corn syrup and butter in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 5 minutes longer. Remove from the heat; stir in walnuts and vanilla. Serve warm over the cake. Yield: 16 servings.

"Excellent pound cake - super elicious. I subbed 1-1/2 tsp. Penzey's Pie Spice for the cinnamon, ginger and cloves (Penzey's Pie Spice is a fantastic blend of 4 kinds of cinnamon, vanilla sugar, mace, ginger, nutmeg, anise seed and clove). I also reduced the sugar to 2-1/2 cups. This pound cake had great texture. I omitted the walnut sauce since I was taking it to a BBQ potluck and I didn't want to fuss with it after placing it on the buffet table."

"sounds delicious. I have not made it yet ... I have a question...what size can of pumpkin? A 28 ounce can or a 14 ounce one? I need to know this before I start. Might be a good idea to put sizes (or amounts in cups) in the ingredients instead of just saying can...duh...I was busy looking at all of the recipes posted for pumpkin cakes and I read this one 3 or 4 times before I posted my comment. It was not until after I hit post that I realized that it did say 1 cup in this recipe...just ignore the question I asked and laugh at my expense"
