Thanksgiving weekend is my absolute most favourite weekend of the year. I LOVE Thanksgiving weekend in the Maritimes. The temperature is perfect, the beautiful leaves are still on the trees, the breeze is crisp, and it smells divine. Besides all that, everything pumpkin and spice is in season. It’s just so perfect. I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekends, wherever you are.
This cake recipe, a Dorie Greenspan recipe, has been one of my favourite cakes to bake during Fall for the past few years. This all-in-one bundt cake was originally published in Dorie’s Baking book, then later re-published by Dorie herself on Serious Eats when she had a regular baking blog post on the site.
This cake has everything you love about fall baked right into it – pumpkin, warm spices, apples, cranberries, and pecans. I like to leave it plain, but it’s great with a maple glaze, ice cream, or whipped cream served with it. It is heavy and moist, and keeps well on the cupboard for several days.
