Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake With Buttermilk Icing

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Barb G.

The flavors continue to develop and the cake tastes even better a few days after it's baked, so it's perfect to have on hand at this time of year, when guest drop in unexpectly. The cake can be made 3 days ahead and kept in an airtight container at room temperature.

I made this for our church coffee hour and it was a crowd-pleaser! It baked up nice and sturdy (no gooey parts). I loved the extra tang of the buttermilk glaze. Thanks Barb, for another great recipe. Roxygirl
