Light Mini Pumpkin Bundt Cakes
Make a “Bundtkin” Patch
It’s Fall y’all! That means it’s time for all things apple and pumpkin. If I had to choose between those two, I would have a heck of the time, I love them both. Almost as much as I love this angel food cake pumpkin patch 😉
Pumpkin Angel Food Cake is so easy to make, and it basically has no fat! In fact, did you know that pumpkin is actually really good for us? Pumpkin is loaded with fiber, antioxidants and vitamin A. In fact, Pumpkin Angel Food Cake is even Weight Watcher approved 😉 So, grab a box of angel food cake, a cup of pure pumpkin, vanilla and a little pumpkin spice and you are 90% on your way to making your own pumpkin patch!
The stems are Voortman Fudge Coated Wafers, cut them in half and they fit in the center of the mini pumpkin bundt cakes. These are a special edition, so be sure to keep a look out for them at your favorite retailer. I used the Vanilla and Salted Caramel Voortman wafers for my “stems” and “dirt” but keep a look out for the Peanut Butter and Chocolate varieties too.
I did put a glaze on my little pumpkins, but you don’t have to. For the glaze, you simply mix powdered sugar and milk. Or you could try my maple glaze drizzle, that would also be delish!
My “leaves” are green vanilla melting wafers, I bought the tiny bag at Walmart for $.80 and I only used about a fourth of the bag.
The mini pumpkin angel food cake bundts bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, and since prep time is less than 10 minutes you can have your very own edible pumpkin patch in about 30 minutes. These super cute pumpkin cakes are perfect to serve up on Halloween and all the way through Thanksgiving. In fact, my mom said that she was going to make them for Thanksgiving 🙂
