Finally fall is here!! That means pumpkin everything, including coffees, teas, and lets not forget cakes!!! I love everything pumpkin spice, it’s honestly my favorite flavor around the holidays! If you love moist cake with a buttermilk glaze…then this recipe is for you!
I am now officially a cake-making maniac!! Pound cakes can be so effortlessly pretty if you have the right 10 inch non-stick pan!
Yield: 16 servings (serving size: 1 slice)
- Cooking spray
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 4 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour (about 13 1/2 ounces)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup fat-free buttermilk
- 1/3 cup fat-free buttermilk
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 350°.
To prepare the cake, lightly coat a 10-inch tube pan with cooking spray; dust with 1 tablespoon flour. Spread pumpkin over 2 layers of paper towels; cover with 2 additional layers of paper towels. Let stand about 10 minutes. Scrape drained pumpkin into a bowl. Note: Make sure you take a good amount of time draining the pumpkin thoroughly in a paper towel. I kept squeezing the water out continuously for the best results.
Place 3/4 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed 3 minutes or until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in pumpkin and vanilla. Lightly spoon 3 cups flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients (through salt) in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Add flour mixture and 3/4 cup buttermilk alternately to sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350° for 55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes on a wire rack. Remove from pan, and cool completely on wire rack.
To prepare glaze, combine 1/3 cup buttermilk and remaining ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute or until thick, stirring constantly; remove from heat. Drizzle cake with glaze.
And Enjoy!!! It is delicious, moist, thick and buttery!
