Pumpkin Pound Cake {With Caramel Glaze}

Good morning, lovelies! I’ve been on pins and needles to share this delicious pound cake recipe! I actually made it three times in a week and a half because it’s just *that* good and I had a lot of things to bake for. I based this recipe off my Cinnamon-Laced Sour Cream Pound Cake that won blue ribbons back in my 4-H days. During this wonderful Fall season, anything pumpkin makes my heart go pitter-pat…so without further adieu…Pumpkin Pound Cake.

Trust me. You’ll want to lick the plate clean.

    Can you make it in a regular baking pan? Bunt pans always stick for me. Looks beautiful and yummy. Cannot wait to me it.

  10. mmm…. it looks delicious!! I will HAVE to try it. The other night (at 10pm, no less!) I decided to make these pumpkin cheesecake muffins. Guess what? I hate to admit it, but I forgot the baking soda and salt and they did not rise! I felt soo bad! The cheesecake was soo good anyway but not the muffin! Will have to try them again.. here is the link http://sugarcooking.blogspot.ca/2010/10/pumpkin-cheesecake-muffins.html

  11. This looks wonderful and sounds wonderful…what a great combination: pumpkin and caramel. thanks for the recipe.

  12. I made this (minus the nuts) and it is fantastic. Thanks for the recipe.

  13. You don’t know how much I love pumpkin pie! Everything that has to do with pumpkin pie I love and never even thought of making it into a pound cake. Thank you for sharing this recipe

  14. Wow, your Pumpkin Pound Cake looks and sound so good, especially topped with the caramel glaze! Pinned. Thanks for the great recipe share!

    I found you on Pinterest because of this recipe. I made it for a ladies brunch and it was such a hit! Thank you so much for posting! I’m sure I will be making this a ton this season.

  16. myra, do you think i could freeze the cake w/ or w/o the glaze? i’m hoping so, since it would make my prep for our thanksgiving much less hectic! btw, that’s just how yummy it looks; in my opinion, it had thanksgiving dinner written all over it! =)

    • Hi Joanna, I would freeze without the glaze and then do the glaze fresh once the cake has thawed. I hope that helps!!! Let me know how it turns out!!

      • i ended up making it later than i had hoped, so no freezing was needed. it was delicious; thanks so much for the recipe, myra!

  17. wanted to say thanks for sharing this recipe! i have made it several times and everyone seems to enjoy it. i make it and share it with teachers that i work with. it is a very moist cake.

  18. The picture looks like there are nuts on top with the glaze, yet the way the layers are done in your recipe the nut layers would be in the middle and at the bottom because you would flip the cake to cool once it was baked, right? Do you do the layers nuts/batter/nuts/batter instead, or do you just add extra nuts to the top with the glaze?

    • Hey Jennifer! You’re right! I must have typed that backwards! Oops. It’s nuts, batter, nuts batter. :) Thanks for catching that!

      • Thanks so much for the reply, making it tonight! Can’t wait to taste it! :)

        • Brought it to our church’s Dessert Auction to raise money for our new roof, and it got one of the highest bids – $500.00!!! (The only change I made was using sliced almonds since that is what I had on hand, sprinkled extra on top of the glaze as well.) Now I’ll make another one for us to try! =) Thanks for the recipe!

  19. What kind of pan did you use? It almost looks like an angel food cake pan? Let me know…

  20. I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone raved about it!
