Wow! This is delicious! As other reviewers suggested, I used 1 cup of melted butter instead of the 3/4 cup and added 1 teaspoon cinnamon. I think that this really made a difference in the yumminess of the dessert. I also had to bake it for approximately 1 hour 15 minutes, which is a little longer than the recipe calls for. I made it for my Mom's birthday and served it with a big dollop of whipped topping. Make won't regret it!-09 Feb 2006

I've made this pumpkin cake many times, but I use a spice cake mix. What a spicy treat--everyone loved it better thank the yellow cake mix.-18 Oct 2006


Move over, pumpkin pie! So easy and soooo good. I have made this cake twice, and I prefer to use pecans instead of walnuts. For some reason this cake is much, much better if it sits a day or so before serving. Thanks so much for the recipe!-21 Nov 2001

Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugars, molasses, eggs, and pumpkin together until blended. At low speed, gradually add dry ingredients.

Don’t Forget to Pin This Recipe Before you Go!

This cake starts with a spice cake box mix, but then you add in some pumpkin puree and a little extra flour to help absorb some of that extra moisture.

The original recipe that I found was made in a 9吉, and the traditional recipe calls for a crumble topping. I was wanting to use my bundt pan, because I love the look of it so much more. So I skipped the crumb topping and added some chopped walnuts to the mix. I drizzled it with the brown butter glaze, but I added some more fall spice to it. This coffee cake was a hit!

I took it to my in laws new house the day we were moving them in. It was in instant hit! So much so, that I made another the next day!

Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

Butter and line a 30x20cm/12x8in rectangular baking tin with baking parchment.

Place the flour, sugar, spice, bicarbonate of soda, sultanas and salt into a large bowl and stir to combine.

Beat the eggs with a touch of caster sugar, then beat into the melted butter, stir in the orange zest and juice and golden syrup and then mix with the dry ingredients until combined. Stir in the pumpkin and beetroot. Pour the batter into the tin and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden-brown and springy to the touch.

For the frosting, beat together the cream cheese, butter and one-third of the icing sugar until smooth and creamy and set aside.

Place the egg whites and the remaining icing sugar into a bowl suspended over a pan of simmering water, ensuring the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Heat the egg whites, whisking with an electric whisk until thick and glossy. Remove from the heat and continue to whisk until the mixture is cooled and very firm. Then whisk in the cream cheese mixture a little at a time.

When the cake is done, let it cool for five minutes then turn it onto a cooling rack.

Heat the orange juice and golden syrup. Prick the cake all over with a skewer and drizzle with the orange syrup while the cake is still warm, then leave it to cool completely.

Using a palette knife spread the frosting over the top the cake. Decorate with the orange zest, and serve.

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 170C, grease and line a loaf tin.

Step 2: Stir together the brown rice flour, almonds, coconut flour, coconut sugar, spices, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt.

Step 3: Blend together the eggs, CO YO, avocado, pumpkin purée, maple syrup and vanilla paste until smooth.

Step 4: Stir the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until combined. Stir through the chopped walnuts and optional chocolate, then pour into the loaf tin, smoothing down the top and bake for an hour or until cooked through. If the cake is browning too much half-way through cooking, place some baking paper over the top and let it continue to bake.

Step 5: In the meantime, beat together the frosting ingredients, then place in the fridge to thicken.

Step 6: Once the loaf is cooked, leave to cool before spreading with the frosting
