Recipe Box, Pumpkin Spice Cake with Maple Buttercream

Have you had pumpkin anything yet this year?

A pumpkin spice latte perhaps~

How about a slice of Pumpkin Spice Cake with Maple Buttercream?

Yes please!

This cake has the flavors of Fall in every tasty bite

Not only is it very moist and delicious,

it’s very easy to make too!

The box of Spice Cake Mix is amped up with pumpkin puree,

buttermilk, vanilla pudding mix, eggs, butter,

sour cream and white chocolate chips

Put everything except the chips, toffee bits,

and {not pictured} maple syrup,

in a mixing bowl and blend

Once the batter is blended, stir in 1 cup of white chocolate chips

Put the batter into a prepared bundt pan

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes and check with a skewer,

return to oven and check every 5 minutes

until cake tester comes out clean

and the cake is set in the middle {mine took 40-45 minutes}

Cool in pan on a wire rack for 1 hour then turn cake out onto a plate

If you don’t have a silicone bundt pan,

I highly recommend getting one,

the cakes come out like a dream

You can get one on Amazon here

Make Maple Buttercream while cake continues to cool

Frost cooled cake and drizzle with maple syrup

Sprinkle top of cake with toffee bits and white chocolate chips

Watch it disappear!
