St. Patrick’s Day is one of those strange holidays that always sneaks up on me.

Even though I’ve been blogging for well over a decade at this point, I still get to the beginning of March before I remember that readers are going to be looking for St. Patrick’s Day recipes.

Once I finally remember that it’s around the corner, I usually try to put something together for you guys. Some years it’s savory recipes like Irish Soda Bread, while other years it’s desserts using Irish cream, such as Baileys Cheesecake.

This year, I decided to lean into the green theme with this super easy pistachio bundt cake.

Maple Syrup Pumpkin Bundt Cake

I use lots of pumpkin puree during the fall, making old classics like Pumpkin Pie and new favorites like Churro Pumpkin Blondies. I come back to the classics time and again, of course, but I’m always on the lookout for recipes to add to the new favorites list. This Maple Syrup Pumpkin Bundt Cake is a recipe that recently became a repeat in my kitchen. The bundt cake uses plenty of pumpkin puree and real maple syrup, along with a generous dose of pumpkin pie spices, for a wonderfully moist cake that is packed with fall flavors.

Pumpkin has a natural sweetness that works well with a variety of sweeteners. Molasses, either in the form of brown sugar or liquid molasses, is one of the most commonly added pumpkin flavors. Molasses is delicious, but can overpower the more delicate flavor of pumpkin. Maple syrup brings a wonderfully light, sweet maple flavor to the cake and still lets the pumpkin shine through. A maple syrup glaze on top of the cake highlights the maple flavor even more.

When it comes to baking with maple syrup – especially in a recipe like this one, where pumpkin and spices are also prominent flavors – the maple flavor is more subtle than when you use a maple extract in a cake. Maple extract adds a big dose of strong, praline-like maple flavor and will really put it at the forefront of the cake. I prefer to stick with pure maple syrup, opting for a darker syrup (dark amber/robust) that has a relatively intense flavor, rather than using the extract, but you can add in a 1/2 teaspoon to the cake batter if you really want to up the overall maple flavor. Maple extract tends to be very strong, so use a light touch if you decide to include it!

The cake is dense and moist, with a great pumpkin flavor. It’s not overly sweet, so the glaze is a nice finishing touch for the recipe to add an extra touch of maple. The cake could be served for dessert, or alongside a fall brunch, as it is excellent with coffee. If you want to change things up, you can fold in up to 3/4 cup of finely chopped, toasted nuts to add some texture to the cake. Both pecans and walnuts go very well with maple and pumpkin. The cake will keep for several days after baking, so feel free to either nibble on it in tiny slices over the course of the day or indulge in a big slice all at once!

Maple Pumpkin Bundt Cake
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1/3 cup maple syrup (not pancake syrup)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup milk
1 15-oz can (approx 1 1/4 cups) pumpkin puree

Glaze
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 tbsp maple syrup
1-2 tbsp heavy cream
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, followed by the vegetable oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
Whisk together milk and pumpkin puree in a small bowl or measuring cup.
Stir about 1/3 of the flour mixture into the butter mixture, followed by half of the pumpkin mix. Stir in another 1/3 of the flour mixture, followed by the remaining pumpkin and the remaining flour. Mix only until ingredients are just combined and no streaks of dry ingredients remain visible. Pour into prepared pan and spread into an even layer
Bake for about 45 min, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean and the top springs back when lightly touched.
Cool in the pan for 15-20 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Once cake is cooled, whisk together all glaze ingredients in a small bowl, adding heavy cream until glaze reaches a pourable consistency, and drizzle over the top of the cake.

Makes 1 bundt cake; serves 10-12

There are a lot of recipes on this site that my husband really loves.

Easy Fettuccine Alfredo is a family favorite and he can’t get enough of Dominique Ansel’s Banana Bread.

But I’m not sure I’ve ever made a recipe he loves as much as this Whipping Cream Cake. As soon as I turned the cake out of the pan, he was all over it. 

Within a matter of hours he had devoured the bottom part of the cake. You know the part that is on top when baking in a bundt pan but becomes the bottom when you turn it out? On this cake, that part becomes so crunchy and delicious, so he nibbled away all of it and begged me to make the cake again.

I mean, how could I say no to that?

Pound cake. For some reason, every single time I think of pound cake I think of little old grandmas and Sara Lee. Why?

I have no idea, it’s just a thing. I also don’t make a lot of pound cake.

Not that I have anything against it, it just always seemed kinda mundane to me next to the best chocolate cake or pumpkin crunch cake. If your thoughts on pound cake are at all similar to what mine were, allow me to change your mind.

This Cream Cheese Pound Cake will open up a brand new world of pound cake consideration and will literally have you secretly escaping to the kitchen to nibble on it.

My sweet Elle has been very into oranges lately. So much so that I have been buying them for her by the crateful at Costco.

She’s very particular about the way they are sliced, so I can basically supreme an orange with eyes closed at this point. But I’m happy to pump my girl full of vitamin c at this time of year.

Since we’ve had so many oranges on hand lately, I’ve been thinking of ways to use them in baked goods like this Citrus Poppy Seed Cake and we’ve even made several batches of Holiday Stovetop Potpourri.

The best thing about this cake is that it is super simple to make which is always a bonus at this time of year!

So have you guys fallen down the rabbit hole that is cleaning TikTok? I’m one of those people that actually enjoys cleaning, but I’ve learned that some people have taken their love for cleaning to a whole new level. And I am here for it.

I’ve also learned that I am easily influenced when it comes to cleaning tools and products. From a new spin mop and microfiber clothes to Dawn Power Wash and powdered Tide, some of my new favorite products were actually found through cleaning influencers. I mean, I didn’t even know this was a thing until just a few months ago. By the way that Dawn Power Wash is pretty dang fantastic – the apple scent is my fave!

Basically October 2020 has been a month full of lots of cleaning and baking pumpkin desserts like this Pumpkin Bundt Cake.

1. Salted Egg Yolk Pound Cake

Typically used in Asian cuisine, salt-cured egg yolks add a unique, briny quality to any dish they touch. The author of this recipe, ingeniously adds this “umami gold” to the pound cake batter to create “rich saltiness that heightens the sweetness—and deepens the savoriness—of pound cake.” Keep in mind that this must-try recipe does require some foresight, as curing the yolks does require a few weeks of anticipation. Though, you can always look for store-bought, salt-preserved eggs at your local Asian market.
