This is definitely one Moist Pumpkin Cake and is topped with an amazing Brown Butter Glaze.
Do you know what this pumpkin cake reminds me of? It reminds me of perfect Fall Sundays where we would visit my grandma on Sundays to eat an after church Sunday dinner. When I’d walk into her house I was immediately welcomed by the delicious smells of Homemade Fried Chicken, Baked Macaroni and Cheese, and Southern Collard Greens followed behind the sweet smell of a spicy and sweet dessert like this Moist Pumpkin Cake.
What a feast, right?
Although the actual meal is enough to steal my heart and warm my belly, the true star of the show for me was always the dessert. This Moist Pumpkin Cake with Brown Butter Glaze is definitely fit to take center stage of any meal.
How to make this Moist Pumpkin Cake?
Making this pumpkin cake isn’t any different from making any other cake. You add the dry ingredients such as flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Combine those ingredients with some pumpkin puree and additional spices. Bake this cake in a Bundt cake for about an hour and you have yourself one delicious cake!
Now let’s talk about this Brown Butter Glaze
Brown Butter is one of life’s most precious gifts. First of all, it is created from butter. Anything created from butter is magical to me. You take some butter and melt it down and keep it simmering in a small saucepan until the milk deposits have separated and the butter has turned a deep amber color. Not only that, the smell of the Brown Butter smells a bit nutty, which is awesome.
Once you have browned the butter, you allow it to cool and strain the butter through a fine-mesh strainer to remove the milk deposit bits, add some powdered sugar, and a dash of salt. That is the most amazing cake glaze is made ladies and gentlemen. This Brown Butter Glaze can be used for this pumpkin cake recipe or several of my other Pumpkin Recipes on my blog.
If you have gone to the Pumpkin Patches, rode all of the Hayrides, took the kids Trick or Treating, and you still aren’t in the holiday spirit, this Moist Pumpkin Cake with Brown Butter Glaze will definitely get you in the Fall spirit for sure!
