Mini Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cakes are perfect for fall. The small cakes are super moist, wonderfully spiced and topped with a maple glaze.
Mini desserts are always a favorite way to enjoy a sweet treat that work well for any type of gathering.
You will especially love how easy these are to make and can even be made a couple days ahead so you can have them ready to serve.
Who's ready to start baking?
Simple ingredients are used to make the cake.
Step by Step Instructions
Step 1: in a medium bowl place the cake flour and add in the brown sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and baking powder
Step 2: mix until all the dry ingredients are combined and set aside
Step 3: in a large bowl place the pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, eggs and melted butter
Step 4: stir with a spatula or wooden spoon until the mixture is well combined
Step 5: add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture - a little at time until all flour is in bowl
Step 6: use a spatula or wooden spoon to combine the wet and dry ingredients just until mixed - may be a few lumps in batter
Have your oven pre-heated to 350 degrees and place batter in a mini bundt pan that has been coated with vegetable spray
While the cakes are baking make the frosting
Step 7: in a medium bowl beat the cream cheese until creamy
Step 8: add in powdered sugar and maple syrup until well combined then add in milk just until the glaze is the desired consistency you would like
These cute little cakes are out of the oven and ready to frost!
- to ensure a moist cake use a toothpick to check and remove from oven when the toothpick is just barely wet
- only cool in pan a few minutes then invert onto a baking rack to cool completely
- frosting can be put on two ways - the fastest is to dip the tops into the cream cheese frosting (see picture above); the other is to thin it down a bit and drizzle over the tops letting it drip down (see picture below)
- these cakes can be frozen once they are cooled and before they are frosted - wrap each individually in plastic wrap and store in a large bag or container then glaze after they are defrosted
- I store mine in an airtight container in the refrigerator - they should last about a week
- after glazing, if desired, top with chopped walnuts or pecans. I sprinkled mine with a pumpkin spice-sugar mixture
