Every Thanksgiving my mom makes about 3-4 large loaves of pumpkin bread. My brothers, who are in their 30s, still argue over who gets to lick the bowl. I make my share of pumpkin bread as well but each year during the holidays I also like to make a pumpkin bundt cake. It’s a little bit more moist than the bread that I make and it just looks cuter (if cute can be used to describe food).
To make the cake, the first thing you do is crack open your eggs and beat them ever so slightly. That is the hardest part of the recipe. After your eggs are beaten, you add the sugar and oil. If you’re trying to eat healthier, you can substitute applesauce for the oil. I’ve tried this and it works well. And you should make sure you’re using Eggland’s Best eggs. I won’t go into all the details here but there is a difference in the nutritional value of the eggs you buy at the supermarket. If you want less fat and more nutrients, check out the Eggland’s Best website and I bet you’ll be surprised how spending just a buck or so more on eggs really can make a difference in your diet.
You can frost your cake in a variety of different ways. Usually I’ll make a cream cheese frosting but today, since I was short on time, I opted to go with a simple powdered sugar and milk glaze. Sometimes the cream cheese frosting can be overwhelming but the glaze? Just the right amount of sweetness and perfect for those holiday get togethers.
