Perfect for Fall: Pumpkin Cakes

Okay, I have the yummiest and easiest fall recipe that is a sure people pleaser. This easy Pumpkin Cake with Apple Glaze is moist and delicious and suits the atmosphere of fall perfectly. I made these for my Supper Club last weekend and everyone really enjoyed them.

I have the cutest little baby bundt pans by Kitchen Aid which added to their charm I think, but you could easily just do them as cupcakes or even make one large bundt cake too.

This recipe is easy on the wallet too as it requires only a few ingredients…most of which you probably have in your pantry already.

These little things are almost like a doughnut; the cake is very moist and the glaze adds that perfect bit of extra sweetness. They work for dessert or as a breakfast or brunch item that pairs perfectly with a good cup of coffee!

Pumpkin Cake with Apple Glaze


  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/3 C. butter
  • 2 C. powdered sugar
  • 1 C. apple juice (or apple cider)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mix cake mix and pumpkin together (don’t add the oil or egg from the cake box)
  3. Stir in 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  4. Put batter in your greased cupcake liners or greased mini bundt pans
  5. Bake for about 22 minutes or until fork comes out clean
  6. While cakes are baking, melt the butter on the stovetop
  7. Stir in the powdered sugar and apple juice and 1 tsp. cinnamon
  8. Pour glaze over warm cakes

These would be a great alternative to the traditional pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving! I would love to hear about your favorite fall or Thanksgiving dessert…if you’d like, please share your recipe in the comments section.

Have a wonderful day!
