Pumpkin Pound Cake with Buttermilk Glaze

Pumpkin Pound Cake with Buttermilk Glaze - The perfect Fall dessert. I took this to a holiday party and it was a huge hit! Everyone asked for the recipe! This is definitely going on our Thanksgiving menu!

This time of year is all about pumpkin. Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Muffins - you get the idea. I needed a dessert to take to a tailgate party and decided to give this Pumpkin Pound Cake with Buttermilk Glaze a try. It turned out great! Everyone loved it. I am planning on adding this to our Thanksgiving menu this year.

Just a note about making the cake. You need to let the pumpkin puree drain on some paper towels before adding it to the batter. Also, make sure you are using canned pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling.

The cake is topped with a yummy buttermilk glaze. I was skeptical about it, but it turned out great. I think it would also be great on top of some cinnamon rolls. We served the cake with some whipped cream and pecans. Next time I plan on making some cinnamon ice cream to serve with it.

  2. This looks yummy and I think I'll try it for a party we're invited t later in November. You have the best recipes and they're so easy and use ingredients that we usually have on hand! Thanks!!
    I do have one thing to mention and please don't think it's a hardcore complaint because I know this is how you make your living, but the ads that pop up or scroll with your page take so long to load because there are so many and I wonder if there is anything that you can do about it. I have my laptop serviced regularly so it's not that.

    1. Susan - hope you enjoy the cake. As far as the ads go, there are NO ads that pop-up on Plain Chicken. The only pop-up is the email subscription pop up. If you "x" out of that pop-up, it won't come back up for a month. I know you think it isn't your computer, but it isn't Plain Chicken. I work hard with my ad manager to ensure no pop ups on the site. I never get any when I am on the site.
