Two of the best things about the holiday season are pumpkin desserts and family recipes. So today I share with you a recipe from my family, that I can never get enough of. This Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake is exactly what we need to kick Autumn into high gear!
Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips, divided
- 6 tbsp butter, room temperature
- 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
- 8 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tsp bourbon
- 1/2 cup whole milk
Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 Pellet Grill to 350ºF, set up for indirect grilling.
Combine the sugar and vegetable oil in the bowl of a stand mixer. Using the paddle attachment, mix on medium until well combined. Add the eggs one at a time with the mixer running.
Combine the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and powder and salt in a separate bowl. Whisk to mix well. With the mixer running on low, add half of the dry ingredients. When the dries have been mixed in, add half of the pumpkin puree. When the pumpkin is incorporated, repeat the process, working the other half of the dry ingredients, then the remaining pumpkin.
Remove the bowl from the mixer. Fold in the chocolate chips using a spatula.
Grease a bundt pan with cooking spray. Add the cake batter to the bundt pan.
