Recipe: Pumpkin Apple Spice Cake

  • Delicious

This is a perfect dessert or treat as we are moving into fall and closer to Thanksgiving! This cake will serve approximately 12 slices.

Pumpkin Apple Spice Cake


  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pureed pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/3 cup apple juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups peeled apples of your choice (finely chopped, about 2 medium)
  • 1/2 cup pecans chopped (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and spray pan with vegetable pan spray (a bundt type cake pan works nicely).
  2. In large bowl, beat eggs with electric mixer until they turn a light yellow color. Gradually add sugar, oil, pumpkin, milk and vanilla; beat thoroughly.
  3. Combine flour, cinnamon, cloves (if adding), salt and baking soda; add to egg mixture and mix well.
  4. Gently stir in apples and, if using, nuts. Pour into prepared pan.
  5. Bake 55-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  6. Let cake cool in pan for 15 minutes.
  7. Remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack before icing.

**Any cream cheese type icing goes nicely with this cake. Garnish or decorate as you like! :)
