Pumpkin Bundt With Cheesecake Pecan Filling Recipe @pinch

If Mother Nature could have a cake for each season, this pumpkin Bundt cake would be for fall. It is so good it makes it worth the effort of making homemade pumpkin puree. Super moist, the cake has all the fall spices and smells amazing as it bakes. The cream cheese center is a nice surprise. The frosting, along with the pecans, is the perfect final touch. My sister grew Heritage Pumpkins this year and oh my what a treat! She gave me one to use for my baking. Out of 1 pumpkin, I have over 6 cups of sweet, sweet fresh organic homegrown pumpkin!! The girls at work were dying for me to make a cake so I whipped this bundt cake up for them. I took half the cake to work and It got rave reviews and there was not a crumb left to it once they finished! The other half I split between home and neighbors and my neighbors gave it rave reviews too. I hope you do too!
