Pumpkin Pound Cake


  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar (I used light brown sugar and it was just fine)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (about 13 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup fat-free buttermilk

  • 1/3 cup fat-free buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • To Prepare the cake, lightly coat a 10-inch tube pan with cooking spray; dust with 1 tablespoon flour.  Spread pumpkin over 2 layers of paper towels; cover with 2 additional layers of paper towels.  Let stand about 10 minutes.  Scrape drained pumpkin into a bowl.
  • Place 3/4 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar and 1/2 cup butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed for 3 minutes or until well blended.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Beat in pumpkin and vanilla.  Lightly spoon 3 cups flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife.  Combine flour and next 4 ingredients (through salt) in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk.  Add flour mixture and 3/4 cup buttermilk alternately to sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
  • Spoon batter into prepared pan.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 55 minutes or until a wooden pick insterted into the center comes out clean.  Cool in pan 10 minutes on a wire rack.  Remove from pan, and cool completely on wire rack.
  • To prepare glaze, combine 1/3 cup buttermilk and remaining ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil.  Cook 1 minute or until thick, stirring constantly; remove from heat.  Drizzle cake with glaze.

Sounds delicious! I even have all the ingredients! Well, except the buttermilk, but I can make substitutions for that!

Made this for David's birthday - everyone loved it! I didn't like the glaze much (I'm not a big fan of buttermilk), but my brother-in-law raved over the glaze. It has earned a permanent spot in my recipe binder!
