It’s like having Thanksgiving dessert and coffee for breakfast, all in one!

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to cooking and baking, I just love to experiment with different ingredients and flavors. Here are some substitutions and variations that you can try when making this delicious Pumpkin Pie Coffee Bundt Cake recipe.

– Flour: You can use any type of flour you like for this recipe. Whole wheat flour or gluten-free flour would be great options if you’re looking for a healthier or allergy-friendly twist. Just be mindful that using different types of flour may affect the texture and density of the cake.

– Sugar: White granulated sugar can be substituted with brown sugar or coconut sugar for a slightly different flavor profile. Keep in mind that brown sugar is more moist than white sugar, so adjust the measurements accordingly.

– Spice Mix: The classic pumpkin pie spice blend used in this recipe calls for cinnamon, clove, ginger, and allspice. However, you can customize your own spice mix by adding nutmeg, cardamom, or even a pinch of black pepper. Experiment to find your perfect balance of warmth and depth.

– Streusel Topping: If you want to switch up the streusel topping, try using chopped pecans or walnuts instead of graham cracker crumbs. Or add dried cranberries or raisins to the mix for a pop of sweetness.

– Glaze: The cream cheese glaze adds a tangy sweetness that complements the spiced cake perfectly. But if you prefer a milder flavor profile, you can skip the glaze altogether or use a simple powdered sugar and milk glaze instead.

– Add-ins: Want to jazz up your Pumpkin Pie Coffee Bundt Cake even more? Amp up the flavor with chocolate chips, chopped apples, shredded carrots or zucchini, or bits of candied ginger.

The beauty of baking at home is that there are no limits to what you can create in your own kitchen. So don’t be afraid to experiment with different substitution or addition ideas, and let your creativity run wild!

Serving a warm, freshly baked pumpkin pie coffee bundt cake is like serving a slice of autumn on your plate. To enjoy this delicious treat, I recommend cutting the bundt cake into even slices and serving it with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

But wait, there’s more! This cake is versatile enough to be paired with many different beverages. A freshly brewed cup of black coffee or espresso pairs perfectly with the rich and spicy flavor of this cake. Or you can pair it with a hot cup of spiced apple cider for an autumnal twist.

For those who prefer something cold and refreshing, a cold glass of milk or a frothy latte made with pumpkin spice syrup would be the perfect choice. And if you’re feeling extra indulgent, why not try pairing this cake with a sweet and creamy pumpkin spice milkshake?

No matter how you choose to serve and pair this pumpkin pie coffee bundt cake, one thing is certain: it’s sure to be a hit at any fall gathering or dessert table.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

 This cake is going to steal the show at your next brunch or coffee date.

Like any coffee cake, this pumpkin pie coffee bundt cake is best enjoyed fresh out of the oven. However, if you want to make it ahead of time, there are a few things you can do to keep it fresh.

To make this cake ahead of time, you can prepare the batter and store it in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Then, when you are ready to bake, simply take it out and pop it into the oven.

Once the cake is baked and cooled, you can store it at room temperature in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic wrap for up to three days. If you want to prevent the cake from drying out, store it with a slice of bread, which will absorb excess moisture and keep your cake perfectly moist.

If you have leftovers that you would like to reheat, I recommend microwaving a slice of cake for about 20 seconds. Alternatively, you can reheat the whole cake by placing it in a preheated oven at 350°F for 8-10 minutes.

Another idea is to freeze the pumpkin pie coffee bundt cake for later. To do this, simply wrap individual slices tightly in plastic wrap and store them in a freezer-safe container for up to three months. When ready to enjoy again, defrost in the fridge overnight and then reheat as usual.

Whether you’re making this pumpkin pie coffee bundt cake ahead of time or storing leftover slices, these tips and tricks will help ensure your cake stays fresh and delicious until its last crumbly bite.

To get the perfect pumpkin pie coffee bundt cake, follow some tips that I gathered after years of making this recipe.

Firstly, make sure to measure all the ingredients carefully. Baking is like science, and even small mistakes in measurements can make a big difference in the final product. I suggest using a digital scale to measure your ingredients in grams or ounces for precise measurements.

Secondly, don’t overmix your batter. Mix the wet and dry ingredients separately as directed in the recipe, and then gently fold them together until just combined. Overmixing can cause gluten to develop, making the cake tough and chewy.

Thirdly, use room temperature eggs and butter. This allows them to incorporate better into the batter and create a smoother texture. Leave them out on the counter for around 30 minutes before using.

Fourthly, add some texture with graham cracker crumb streusel. The crunchy texture goes well with the softness of the cake, not to mention its nutty flavor pairs well with pumpkin too.

Fifthly, bake at 350°F (180°C) in a preheated oven for up to 1 hour and 15 minutes. Do a skewer test at 60 minutes and keep checking every five minutes until done. Don’t open the oven too often during baking as it can reduce heat and affect baking time.

Sixthly, let the bundt cake cool before storing or frosting it. Cut it into slices when it’s completely cooled since if you cut it when it’s still warm, the texture will be ruined.

Lastly, don’t be afraid to experiment with different toppings or fillings like cream cheese frosting or spiced glaze. You can also add nuts or drizzle caramel sauce for extra indulgence!

By following these tips, you should achieve a beautiful-looking and delicious-tasting pumpkin pie coffee bundt cake that everyone will fall in love with.

Ingredients
  

Batter

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon clove
  • 1/8 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup butter (softened)
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Streusel

  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter (cold)

Instructions
 

  • You will need a bundt pan that holds at least 10 cups. My leaf design pan holds only 9 cups, so I made two single serving cakes for myself. "Quality control". :).
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Also, it is best to start with room temperature ingredients whenever possible.
  • Spray your bundt pan with a good baking spray and use a pastry brush to ensure it is thoroughly coated.
  • Whisk together the dry ingredient for the batter in a large bowl.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
  • In another medium bowl or food processor, mix the dry ingredients for the streusel. Then, cut the cold butter through the mix with a pastry blender or process it with the food processor until it is crumbly. The remaining butter chunks should be no larger than pea size.
  • Add the wet batter ingredients to the dry batter ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Start by adding either streusel or batter into your pan. Alternate the two making sure that each layer of streusel is completely covered by at least an inch of batter. Use a spatula to spread it all the way to the edges of the pan. Then, tap your pan on your countertop padded with a folded kitchen towel several times to remove air bubbles.
  • I like to make a few layers, but you are welcome to make only a couple. It is best to save a layer of streusel for the last layer, as this will make a lovely, crunchy layer of deliciousness on the bottom of your cake once it's inverted.
  • Bake your bundt for at least 80 minutes or until it passes the "toothpick test". Invert and cool on a wire rack. Keep in mind that it will not fully set until it is thoroughly cooled. I started with the streusel sp I turned out the cake immediately to avoid the sugar sticking to my pan and ruining the design of the cake. You can wait, but no longer than maybe 10 minutes so it comes out clean and doesn't get soggy.
