Pumpkin Poundcake with Cinnamon Glaze

pumpkin poundcake with cinnamon glaze recipeY’all, it is finally fall.  And I could not be any happier about it.  When the weather starts to chill, the pumpkin comes out.  Pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread, pumpkin blondies, pumpkin everything.  This pumpkin pound cake is so easy, yet so comforting, and has just enough spice.  Make this cake, pour yourself a cup of tea, and grab a good book.  Take a minute out of your crazy day to stop and enjoy my favorite time of year.

    This looks so good! Do you have a suggestion for the pudding though? We avoid all dyes and the pudding has dye in it.

    • Bree

      well, homemade pudding (maybe 3/4 cup or so?) or look for a dye-free version.

  • Bree Grossman Hester

    thanks everyone, this one is so easy and so delicious. I have made it a few times and it has proven to be foolproof.

  • Marci Goodwin

    Love, love, love pound cake. I have a question on the pudding mix – I am assuming it is the instant variety and the four serving size box? Just want to be sure before I make this delicious cake. Thanks.

    • Bree Grossman Hester

      yup, the little box.

  • Alison

    Gorgeous! Looks perfect for a cool October morning.
