If I have a food blog and I don’t have a Pumpkin Spice Cake Recipe on it yet…, its shame, no? 🙂

Well, I have mixed feelings about Pumpkin Spice. I like it on my cakes but definitely not on coffee. I love Fall. Love it so so so much and I LOVE everything about fall. Trust me this Pumpkin Spice Cake Recipe screams of Fall flavors. Its bursting with fresh nutmeg, cinnamon, bay leaf flavors and to top it off all, its coated with a very light cinnamon flavored cream cheese frosting. A perfect coffee cake.

Most importantly, this Pumpkin Spice Cake Recipe belongs to my cousin – Nimpa. She is family to me. The family that I came from is important, but the family I created over the years is a priority. 🙂 Here is to her ever smiling attitude and her unquenched zeal for life.



  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tea spoon salt
  • 1 tea spoon baking soda
  • 2 tea spoons baking powder
  • 1 tea spoon ground ginger
  • 1 tea spoon cinnamon
  • 1 tea spoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 tea spoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 and 1/4 cup plain yogurt or buttermilk

Cinnamon- Cream cheese Frosting

  • 8 ounce cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 tea spoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar


  • Pre heat oven to 350 degree F or 180 degree C
  • Prepare your cake pan by lining with parchment paper
  • Whisk and shift together dry ingredients into a bowl
  • Beat butter and brown sugar till light and fluffy
  • Add eggs one at a time
  • Add flour mixture and buttermilk alternatively. Begin and end with flour mixture

NOTE: The cake tastes amazing without the frosting as well. 🙂

  1. I am sorry but I assumed this cake contains pumpkin. Excuse me if I am wrong. Also I didn’t find eggs in the ingredient list.

  2. Hi! This is a Pumpkin Spice cake and pumpkin spice consists of nutmeg, cinnamon etc. There is no pumpkin in the cake. Also, this is an egg free cake. Eggs are replaced with yougurt.
