Spiced Bundt Cake with Orange Butter

shared-sugar-spiced-bundt-cake-3Sometimes the simplest things in life are the best. I received this recipe from a friend of my mom’s. The word on the street was that this bundt cake was devoured within hours of it being prepared but when I read the recipe I was not convinced. It seemed so basic.

shared-sugar-spiced-bundt-cake-2 By request of my mom, I made it for a family gathering. I was nervous about the outcome but didn’t taste it before sharing it with my family as to not ruin the beautiful shape of the cake. Little did I know, I had nothing to worry about.

shared-sugar-spiced-bundt-cake-1 I served it warm so the Orange Butter would melt into the cake. It was love at first bite. Unbelievable. It was so delicious. I wanted to have it for every meal. This is a great example of how the right combination of ingredients can still steal the show. This recipe will be in my baking archive for decades. Can’t beat simple pleasures like this.

    Spiced Bundt Cake with Orange Butter

    adapted from Kim’s recipe, friend of my mom
    serves 12-15

  • Ingredients

  • bundt cake
  • 3-1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 can pumpkin puree (16 ounces)
  • 1-1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • powdered sugar, for dusting
  • orange butter
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • zest of one orange
  • 1/4 cup orange juice concentrate, at room temperature
  • 1-1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • Directions

  • make the bundt cake

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour the bundt pan. In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and fill the well with the remaining ingredients. Using a whisk, mix thoroughly. Pour the batter into the bundt pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes. Use a toothpick to check if the cake is done. Try and remove the cake from the oven right before the toothpick comes out clean. The top of the cake should be golden brown. Let the cake cool slightly. Then turn the cake out onto a serving plate and dust with powdered sugar.

    make the orange butter

    Using a mixer, beat the butter and orange zest until smooth. Then add the orange juice concentrate and beat until combined. Add the powdered sugar in increments and beat until smooth. Add more or less powdered sugar to taste. Serve in a bowl to spread on warm bundt cake.

    Hi, this looks amazing! I really want to try it, but pumpkin puree isn’t really available where I am in Ireland. Do you think that grated carrot might work as a replacement? Or mashed banana?

    I just posted 3 pumpkin recipes in March – not just because the weather has been gloomy but, also, because I found a lonely can of pumpkin in the pantry. I only wish I had another can to make this luscious-looking cake. Think I might have to buy a can before Fall rolls around! Thank you for sharing.
