This delicious and easy pumpkin bundt cake can be whipped up in no time! If pumpkin pie and cake collided, this pumpkin cake would be the end result! I love this easy pumpkin bundt cake recipe for those times when I need a quick fall dessert.
Pumpkin Bundt Cake
It’s no secret that I adore bundt cakes. Bundt cakes are the best when it comes to quick and easy cakes. I mean you have to love a cake that comes out of the pan looking pretty, only to be enhanced by pouring some frosting or glaze over the top. EASY PEASY.
Pumpkin desserts are a favorite in our home. While I may make a few pumpkin recipes throughout the year, the pumpkin baking goes into full swing in September. From pies, to muffins to cakes, we love anything and everything pumpkin!
While this recipe is incredibly easy, you do need one important tool, a bundt pan! I have a Wilton non-stick bundt pan that I love, and when combined with some non-stick cooking spray, I never have problems with my cakes sticking, they pop right out!
Easy Pumpkin Cake From A Cake Mix
This easy pumpkin bundt cake starts with a cake mix, but you won’t be following the directions on the box for this.
Can’t find a pumpkin cake mix? Don’t worry, yellow cake mix will work as well. If you do use yellow cake mix, double up on your pumpkin pie spice that is called for in the recipe.
So much of the pumpkin flavor we’ve come to know and love in baked goods comes from the spices that we pair our pumpkin with.
This cake is so easy you don’t even need to worry about mixing the wet and dry ingredient separately, they can all go into the bowl together!
I guess we can call this a one-bowl pumpkin cake! After mixing ingredients together with a hand mixer, you’ll transfer your batter to a bundt pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, and bake.
After your cake has been removed from the oven and allowed to cool a bit, you can whip up your cream cheese frosting, add it to your cake, and you are ready to enjoy!

Absolutely easy and tastiest came I have ever made. I used white cake mix cause it was what I had in the house. I also replaced the pumpkin spice seasoning with Allspice and it came out beautiful. Spike that frosting glaze with a little rum or bourbon and …. *chefs kiss*!!

Can you use Pillsbury’s Pumpkin Quick Bread in the same capacity as the cake mix?
Christi Johnstone says
Alicia, I haven’t tried, so I’m afraid I can’t say. Sorry!

Made this day before Thanksgiving as just do not like pumpkin pie. However I use canned pumpkin for many other recipes. This bunt cake was perfect for moisture, tetureen and taste. I did not use icing only sprinkled with powdered sugar.
I used a spice cake mix for the pumpkin bundt cake recipe. I am not a good baker but this recipe was so easy and I have to say it was the best and most moist cake I have ever made. I cannot wait to make it again (after I lose the 5 lbs I gained from Thanksgiving.)
Recipe is spot on.
Drizzled a little caramel on that for good measure and wow!
Made this tonight and my whole family loved it! My kids could not get enough. It was super easy to make with using a spice boxed cake mix and adding everything else. Will definitely make again! Thanks for a great recipe.
