Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake
Prep the bundt cake with baking spray or butter and flour. Whisk the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl and set aside. Mix the pumpkin, buttermilk, and vanilla in a large measuring cup, set aside. Cream the butter and sugars together until nice and fluffy. Add the eggs until incorporated. Alternate in thirds the flour and pumpkin mixture, ending with the flour.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, until a toothpick comes out fairly clean. Crumbs are fine but the wet batter is no good. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, turn out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
Dust with confectioners’ sugar, if desired. This cake doesn’t need anything else but it looks pretty, right? Just look at that moist, tender crumb studded with flecks of Fall spices.
