For the Pumpkin Bundt Cake

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease a bundt pan… I highly recommend Nordic Ware 12-cup Bundt Pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine sugar and oil.  Blend until combined.
  • Add eggs one at a time, beat after each addition.
  • This is what you should have.
  • In a medium sized bowl combine the dry ingredients… flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt.  Stir.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture.
  • Then the pumpkin. Mix. Alternate between the egg mixture and pumpkin beating after each addition.
  • Pour batter into Bundt pan.
  • Into the oven for 60 – 65 minutes.
  • Allow the cake to cool.

For the Maple Cream Cheese Glaze

  • In a mixing bowl combine the Neufchatel cream cheese, butter, and pure maple syrup.  Mix.
  • Add confectioners’ sugar, vanilla extract, and milk.
  • Glaze is ready… add more milk if you prefer a thinner glaze.
  • Once the cake has cooled, pour the glaze over the cake.  Slice and serve.  Enjoy!
