  • 1 1/2 cups (300 g) granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup  (165 g) light brown sugar packed
  • 5 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 cup (218 g) vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (6.3 g) vanilla
  • 2 cups (450 g) pumpkin purée 
  • 3 cups (360 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons (18 g) baking powder
  • 3 teaspoons (7.8 g) ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (3.9 g) ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon (2.64 g) nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon (5.6 g)salt


  • 1 cup (226 g) unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups (300 g) granulated sugar
  • 12 oz evaporated milk
  • 2 tsp (8.4 g) pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp (4 g) rum extract



  1. Preheat 325 degrees F. Spray your bundt pan with non-stick spray, toss some flour around the edges and set aside.

  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the sugar and eggs together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the oil and vanilla and beat on medium until combined, about 30 seconds. Add the pumpkin filling and mix until combined, about another 30 seconds. 
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg, and salt, and with the mixer on the lowest speed, gradually add to the pumpkin/egg mixture.
  4. Pour the batter into your bundt pan and bake until a knife or toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs on it, about 50 to 55 minutes.

  5. Let the cake cool completely before turning it on to a cake plate.


  1. Combine ingredients in a medium saucepan. Stir and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool slightly before pouring over your bundt cake.
