I made this on a whim late last night and it was still cooling when I went to bed. Since the recipe was completely improvised, I had no idea if it was successful until I woke up this morning. So when I rolled out of bed (way too early), the first thing I did was cut into the cake!
While I wouldn’t suggest eating cake for breakfast on a regular basis, this Pumpkin Spice Cake turned out to be the perfect day-before-Thanksgiving breakfast for my husband and I. It was moist, spicy, and delicious…exactly what I was hoping for!
I’ve always loved spice cakes served with nothing more than a sprinkling of powdered sugar on top. This cake is moist enough to stand on it’s own, and serving it without frosting or glaze allows the warm and wonderful spices to shine.
This recipe is loosely based on a Walnut Spice Cake recipe from The Gourmet Cookbook. But I added some ingredients, removed others, and changed amounts of the remaining ingredients, so it really was quite an improvisation. I also changed the method, so it’s simple to put together, much like a quick bread. In fact, you could really say this is a quick bread that is baked in a Bundt pan. Call it what you like, I say it’s delicious, easy, and worth baking!
