Ingredients

Cream Cheese Glaze

  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 5 oz cream cheese, room temperature

Pumpkin Cake

  • 1 15-ounce can Pumpkin Pie Filling
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup (1 stick or 113g) butter, softened
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¾ cup buttermilk, room temperature

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.

GLAZE

  • Combine all ingredients in a stand mixer until fully incorporated. (About 5 minutes. You want to get all the lumps out) Set aside.

PUMPKIN CAKE

  • Coat a 10-inch tube pan with cooking spray.
  • Place granulated sugar, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed for 3-5 minutes or until well blended.
  • Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Stir in pumpkin and vanilla.
  • Combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk.
  • Add flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
  • Spoon batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake at 350° for 55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out mostly clean (a few crumbs are great!). Cool in pan for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Remove from pan, and cool completely on wire rack.
  • Drizzle cake with glaze. If you drizzle while the cake is warm the glaze will soak into the cake more. If you drizzle when the cake is cool, the glaze will appear thicker.

Notes

I said pumpkin puree in the video - that was an error, I meant Pumpkin Pie Filling!
The difference between pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie filling is the additional spices added to the pumpkin pie filling.
If you do not have Pumpkin Pie Filling and need to use Pumpkin Puree, you will want to add extra seasoning to the recipe. 
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
