A delicious Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Maple Cream Cheese Glaze with step by step photos. It’s the perfect fall cake on Thanksgiving.

Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Maple Cream Cheese Glaze

A few weeks ago I hosted my annual fall brunch. It was one of those seasonal brunches with pumpkin, butternut squash, and all things fall. While I typically try and keep things light with the main course and sides, a fall pumpkin dessert is worth a splurge in my opinion. Suffice it to say my girlfriends eagerly anticipate my desserts, and thus this isn’t exactly the time to experiment with healthier options.

    Just the right amount of sweetness in this moist cake! Made it this weekend and turned out amazing to everyone who tried it. The only thing I would mention is that cream cheese and the butter should be room temperature for easy mixing.
