Pumpkin Spice Pound Cake

You know those pins that have been sitting on your Pinterest board for absolutely forever?  
Well, this pumpkin spice pound cake is one of those for me.  I'm pretty sure when I was finally "invited" to join Pinterest four years ago, this was one of the first things I pinned!

And it just so happens that this dessert looks as festive as it tastes!



Since this recipe requires two rounds of baking, I cheated and used boxed cake mixes - but your favorite recipe from scratch will work just as well!

Begin by baking a loaf of pumpkin spice bread.  Remove from the oven 5 minutes before the recommended baking time.  Once baked, let the loaf fully cool - this is very important so that the bread won't crumble!



After the loaf is fully cool, remove from the bread pan and cut into thick slices.



Next, use a pumpkin cookie cutter to cut out pumpkin-shaped slices.



Put the slices back into a greased bread pan.  To hold the pieces together, I added a little extra sliver of pumpkin bread on either side.



Next, mix the pound cake batter and pour over the pumpkin cut-outs.  Give the pan a tap or two on the table to help the batter settle around the pumpkin cut-outs.  Follow the recommended baking time and temperature.



Once the bread is baked and cooled, pop out of the baking pan, add frosting (or not), slice and enjoy!





Looking for a second dessert?
Use the left over scraps of the pumpkin spice bread to make a delicious trifle!

  3. This is so cute, and I'm totally jealous of how well it turned out! One year I tried to do a cupcake that was supposed to have a shape on the inside and it was a complete disaster, haha.

  7. That is talent! I hope it is as easy as you make it look! I didn't think to make the leftovers into a trifle (great idea!), and before I read that the utilitarian in me thought, "but what about the leftovers!"
