Bundts might be one of my favorite types of cakes (admittedly, I have many) because they don’t require much effort or skill, aside from a well-greased pan, but result is a showstopper of a cake. Few things are lovelier than a tall bundt with lots of ridges to catch the glaze and this lightly spiced, vibrant orange cake is just that. This Baileys Pumpkin Spice Bundt yields a cake with a finely textured crumb that’s flavored with moist pumpkin and lightly spiced with Baileys Pumpkin Spice liqueur and cinnamon. There’s a little hit of Baileys Pumpkin Spice in the glaze too to double down on the fall-time flavors.
- 2½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1½ teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 cup (8 ounces) softened unsalted butter
- 2¼ cups sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- ½ cup Baileys Pumpkin Spice
- 1½ cup confectioners sugar
- 1 tablespoon Baileys Pumpkin Spice
- 1 tablespoon cream
- pinch of kosher salt
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Generously spray a bundt or tube pan with baking spray (I like to use a baking specific spray for all of my bundts, I find they release the best).
- In a bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together.
- In the bowl of a mixer beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 4-5 minutes. Scrape down the sides and beat the eggs in one at a time, scraping the bowl after each addition. Beat in the pumpkin puree and Baileys Pumpkin Spice. Spread the batter into the pan. Rap the pan on the counter a few times to make sure the batter gets into the corners of the bundt and to collapse any large air pockets. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until deeply golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 15 minutes before turning out to cool completely.
- Once the cake has cooled, make the glaze by whisking all of the glaze ingredients together--adding more liquid if needed to make a pourable icing.
