PREP TIME10 minutes

COOK TIME50 minutes

TOTAL TIME1 hour

INGREDIENTS

  • For the Cake:
  • 1 spice cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
  • 6 Tablespoons flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin puree
  • 1/2-2/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • For the Brown Butter Spice Glaze:
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar (I added a little more to thicken mine up a bit)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350, spray your bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Mix cake ingredients together (minus the walnuts) on low in your mixer until combined, then on high for two minutes. Fold in chopped walnuts.
  3. Pour into prepared bundt pan. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  4. Remove cake a cool slightly.
  5. To prepare glaze: In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter, stirring constantly. Butter will begin to brown and become fragrant and amber in color. It’s done, be careful not to let it burn. Remove from heat and add in vanilla. Whisk in powdered sugar, spices and milk, adding more sugar if you want it a little thicker. Drizzle over warm (not hot) cake.
