Nutty Pumpkin Bundt Cake and a few shopping finds!

Is it fall yet?  Are we there yet?

So many stores have Fall/Halloween merchandise and candy on their shelves … fall must be around the corner!

I have found so many great recipes featuring apples and pumpkin on the internet and in magazines!  I could bake forever and not get thru everything that I want to 😉

To make a long story short … I am sharing a recipe that falls in the “semi-homemade” category.  I was shopping and found this boxed mix on such a good sale, that I had to buy it and try it …

However, I made the addition of a nutty filling and it was a hit.  Pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and pecans … some of the things that make me swoon!

This bundt cake … whenever I hear bundt cake, I can’t help but think of the movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” … am I alone?  Whether you call it a bundt cake or bunnnttt cake, it’s easy to make, easy to serve and freezes beautifully!

  • 1 Libby’s Pumpkin Bread Kit (56.1 oz.) plus the ingredients listed on mix (eggs, oil, water)

FILLING INGREDIENTS –

  • 1-1/4 cups chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  1. Grease & flour a 12 cup bundt pan (I use a spray that contains flour). Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl prepare pumpkin batter according to directions on box.  Set aside.
  3. In a small mixing combine all filling ingredients.
  4. Pour 1/3 to 1/2 pumpkin batter in prepared bundt pan.  Sprinkle filling mixture over batter and top with remaining batter.
  5. Bake for 60-70 minutes.  Cool for 15 minutes and remove from pan.  Use icing packet according to directions on box.

I’m telling you … this was easy peasy and tasted like fall … perfect with a cup of coffee or tea!

P1030163 Twine packs for $1 in the gift wrap section … perfect for tying up little treat bags 😉

P1030164 Fall candy is on the shelves and Pumpkin Spice M&M’s (Target exclusive) … I neeeeded these … I’ll figure out what to do with them later 😉

The bad news … it’s only bad news for the hubby … I won’t let him open the candy 😉
