I love all the treats that start popping up during the holidays. They help make this a festive time of year. I try to make lots of homemade desserts for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and this pumpkin gingerbread Bundt cake recipe is one of our favorites. 

This recipe works well throughout the holiday season. We’re used to pumpkin in October and November, followed by gingerbread in December. Why not enjoy both pumpkin and gingerbread all season long? The flavors go so well together, and I love the texture pumpkin gives to baked goods. It makes gluten-free breads and cakes taste less dry, so even your gluten-loving friends will enjoy this cake.

Frequently Asked Questions about this Pumpkin Gingerbread Cake

What size Bundt pan should I use?

I use a 9 1/2 inch Bundt pan for this pumpkin Bundt cake. This is a standard 10 cup Bundt pan. A 12 cup Bundt pan is closer to 10 1/2 inches across. If you use a larger pan, your cake may be finished baking a bit sooner, so keep an eye on it starting at 40 minutes.

Can I bake this cake in a different type of pan?

This recipe can also be baked in mini Bundt pans or loaf pans. As a rule of thumb for baked goods, each pan should be filled about 2/3 full, so I suggest following this guideline if you decide to use a different pan.

What substitutions can be made in this recipe?

You can use 1 1/2 tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice in place of the various spices in this recipe. My version is gluten-free, but you can use all-purpose flour if you’d prefer. And you can substitute brown sugar for the coconut sugar if needed.
