This easy gingerbread pumpkin bundt cake is perfect for the holiday season! Moist spice cake drizzled with frosting and orange zest you will surely love!
If you love easy homemade cake recipes this is a wonderful one to bake in the fall! I’ve made a gingerbread loaf, and pumpkin bread is my favorite this time of year so I thought they may taste great together and they certainly did. This easy gingerbread pumpkin bundt cake drizzled with icing, pecans, and a little orange zest is just delicious! It’s like a cross between my favorite fall and winter desserts…okay sometimes I eat them for breakfast too. 😉 Any way you enjoy it I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did tonight, and find it really easy to make thanks to the Braun MultiQuick 9 who generously sponsored this post so we could share our recipe with you today. 😉
It looks so pretty too!
This is how pretty it turns out! Of course you can omit the pecans and/or the orange zest but it really does add such a great texture and flavor to your easy gingerbread pumpkin bundt cake. It looks really pretty with these colorful garnishes too…and that is always important when you have company over right!
Here’s what makes it so easy! So I’m a mother to three active girls, a wife, daughter, and work full time too so I don’t have a lot of time to spare when it comes to making anything homemade like this. Having ONE device that can double, triple, or be used for more than three different appliances I am all over it!!
This Braun MultiQuick 9 serves many purposes.
Here is one….a whisk! Used for mixing light things like whipping cream, egg whites, and simple cakes it is perfect to blend together the wet ingredients for my easy gingerbread pumpkin bundt cake recipe.
Just snap the whisk attachment on the handle and you’re off!
I like it for several reasons but one is that it only has one whisk rather than two which is great for less to wash….only needing to find one (yes things get misplaced often here)….and it’s easy to handle when I’m baking by myself. PLUS with Braun’s SmartSpeed technology, you can adjust blending power without stopping using the simple squeeze of a button. Anything to make our hectic lives easier right??!!
Now on to the toppings….. and a video showing you how we made this easy gingerbread pumpkin bundt cake.
Once your frosting is warm and slightly melted just drizzle it on top, sprinkle your chopped pecans on top followed by some orange zest and you’ve got yourself a delicious fall dessert or brunch item!
If you’re looking for a perfect holiday treat and simplicity in the kitchen these are definitely it!

Here’s the printable recipe to follow.
Easy Gingerbread Pumpkin Bundt Cake
- 1 can pumpkin 15 oz.
- 2 tbsp molasses
- 1 tbsp ginger minced/ finely chopped
- 3/4 c butter softened
- 1 1/4 c brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 2 3/4 c all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp allspice
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1 c pecans crushed
- 3 eggs
- 2 c vanilla frosting melted
- 1 orange or more, to zest and use on top of bundt cake
- In one bowl add your flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix well.
- In another bowl add all other ingredients except your orange zest and frosting. (if you love a bit of orange flavor inside your gingerbread then add 2 tbsp into your batter, then on top as well)
- Use your Braun MultiQuick 9 Whisk Accessory on low speed to mix well.
- Add flour mixture in slowly and mix well with a spoon until well blended.
- Spray the inside of a bundt pan well with non stick spray.
- Set your oven to 350 degrees and bake for 45 minutes or just until toothpick comes out clean, you do not want to over bake it.
- Allow to cool and then carefully flip over on to a pie plate.
- Melt vanilla icing for about 10 seconds in the microwave and drizzle on top.
- Use the Braun MultiQuick 9 Chopper Accessory to chop your pecans into small pcs.
- Sprinkle pecans on top.
- Add zest of an orange to the top of your gingerbread pumpkin bundt cake and serve!
When it’s time to chop your pecans just use the EasyClick System Plus to release your whisk accessory and put it on top of your chopper accessory with your pecans inside. It’s like a mini chopper that doesn’t take up much space in your cupboard, as opposed to others, AND you just gently push it for coarse results, and apply a little more pressure for more power and finer results….. the SmoothStart feature prevents jolting on startup. We don’t want any of that going on. 😉
I wanted my nuts on the chunkier side so I just needed a little pressure on the button to get them just right, but if you wanted to add some to the batter of your easy gingerbread pumpkin bundt cake you could do that too and I might choose a finer blend for that.
Of course those are only 2 of the 9 accessories and function this clever appliance offers, you can visit Braun Site to see the rest and just how nifty it really is for us busy moms in the kitchen.
68% of Americans agree that they’d be more creative in the kitchen if there was less prep time, and 66% say they avoid complex recipes that require a lot of tools or appliances…that is totally me. When it comes to the kitchen, less is more…and I love simple products like Braun’s full line of kitchen appliances like this one! It’s worth getting excited about. 😉
