Pumpkin Spiced Loaf Cake

Well, it’s that time of year again when everything is pumpkin spiced. I love it, so I’m not complaining. This year I turned a typical pumpkin loaf recipe into a bundt cake with a pistachio garnish. It was incredibly moist and delicious. And, of course, it’s fast and easy to make.

First mix together the wet ingredients and sugars.

In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients and mix well. Add your nuts and raisins and mix. Add the dry to wet and mix until just incorporated.


Crush or chop about 4 tbsp. of pistachio nuts. Sprinkle them into the bottom of a greased bundt pan.


Pour the batter into the bundt pan and smooth out the top.

Bake at 350 degrees for one hour or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
