Tips for the Best Mini Pumpkin Bundt Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • Use fresh eggs over boxed egg whites.  Keep the discarded yolk to make a creme brulee or custard, if desired
  • Only use pumpkin puree for this recipe – NOT pumpkin pie filling
  • We used a pastry bag fitted with a star tip – both of which can be found at local hobby stores or online.  In a pinch, you can also use a ziploc bag with the tip cut off. 
  • Using a sifter, sprinkle the bundtlets with some powdered sugar just prior to serving.  The powdered sugar will absorb into the cake as it sits. 
  • If you don’t have nonstick cooking spray, wet the corner of a paper towel with veggie or light olive oil and wipe the inside of the pan.
  • If you’re using a silicone pan, you don’t need the non-stick spray.
  • If you don’t have it on hand you can use this recipe to make your own homemade pumpkin pie spice mix with individual spices:
    • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
    • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
    • 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
    • 1 ½ teaspoons ground allspice
    • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cloves
  • You’ll need a mini bundt cake pan to achieve the bundt cake look. But if you don’t have one, just use a cupcake pan and call them pumpkin muffins… They’ll be just as yummy.

Making the Pumpkin Bundt Cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Unless you have a silicone pan, prepare your bundtlet pan by applying a layer of non-stick spray and sprinkling them with all-purpose flour. Remove any excess flour from the pans and make sure that each cavity is evenly coated to avoid sticking. 
  2. In the stand mixer bowl, cream the softened butter and the granulated sugar until they become lighter in color and have a fluffy appearance. 
  3. Add in the pumpkin spice, salt, baking powder, vanilla, milk, oil, pumpkin puree and egg whites.  Mix again until well combined. 
  4. Finally, incorporate the flour and thoroughly combine. Pause the mixer and scrape the edges as necessary, then mix once more. The mixture should not contain any bumps or lumps.
