A few weeks ago, we had the first “fall like” day. A beautiful sunny day with temperatures in the low 70’s. What does that mean? It means it is time for fall baking. This is one of my favorite things about the season. I can’t get enough of making pumpkin and apple desserts.
An upcoming Sundays with Joy recipe is Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Cinnamon Glaze by Joy the Baker. Although it is not due to be made until mid-October, it seemed like the perfect first recipe to make for the fall season. So on that beautiful first “fall like” day, I took advantage of both kids sleeping. I was actually able to bake something from start to finish without any interruptions. This never happens!
This cake comes together so quickly. And the best part about it is all of the wonderful spices that go into it, including cloves, nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon. Nothing but the smells of fall!
A cinnamon glaze tops off the cake. The recipe indicates that you should drizzle the glaze over the cake. I could not get it thin enough to drizzle so I spread it like a frosting.
I love how the frosting looks on the cake. Makes it look somewhat fancy :).
And this is another cake, like this Browned Butter Glazed Banana Cake, that could be eaten for breakfast or as a dessert. It also pairs well with a hot cup of coffee!
If you want to make this amazing cake, you can find the recipe in the Joy the Baker Cookbook.
Now that I have a pumpkin recipe done, it is time to make an apple one. I am not sure which I like more, pumpkin or apple. What is your favorite???
