How to make a Pumpkin Cake with Maple Glaze

Step 5: Scoop the batter evenly into the bundt pan. Place into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cakes are slightly browned and spring back when touched.

Step 6: While the cakes are baking, make the glaze. Heat maple syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 5 minutes. Whisk in butter, vanilla and salt until the butter has melted. Whisk in confectioners’ sugar until smooth.

Step 7: When the cakes are done, cool for 10 minutes. Then turn one cake upside down and add a tablespoon of maple glaze. Then add another cake, upside right on top of the glaze. Repeat with remaining cakes.

Step 8: Drizzle glaze on all pumpkin cakes. Stick a cinnamon stick in the top for a pumpkin stem. Add a mint leaf.

Step 9: Serve warm with a dollop of ice cream.

These cakes are the cutest!

And they are so easy to make.

Trust me, if I can make them, so can you.
