A pumpkin-y, cake-y take on the classic snickerdoodle. This cake has a slightly crisp exterior, a soft pumpkin-y interior, and a swirl of brown sugar and cinnamon running throughout. It takes a bit of time and finesse to assemble, but it's worth the extra effort.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10-cup fluted tube pan (such as Bundt®) with oil. Mix sugar and cinnamon together; sprinkle into the pan, coating the sides and center evenly. Set aside.

  • Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together for the filling. Set aside.

  • Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cream of tartar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium bowl until thoroughly combined.

  • Beat sugar and butter in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in pumpkin puree and vanilla extract until thoroughly incorporated. Add 1/2 of the flour mixture; mix until just combined. Mix in Greek yogurt until combined. Add in remaining flour mixture, mixing until just combined.

  • Pour 1/3 of the batter into the prepared pan and smooth into an even layer. Sprinkle 1/2 of the filling over the batter. Repeat layers once more, then add the last 1/3 of the batter. Smooth gently over the filling, ensuring it is completely covered.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Gently run a butter knife around the edges and center of the pan to loosen, then invert cake onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Notes:

Make sure to use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling.

You can use up to 2 tablespoons of cinnamon in the filling.

I tried using butter in place of oil when greasing the Bundt pan, but found that the butter did not create the slightly crisp exterior I was looking for.

this was really good. I made a few changes and additions. I only made two layers with all the filling in the middle because with three layers you couldnt taster the filling as well. I also added a pumpkin cream cheese icing drizzed overtop (pumpkin cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar). After these tweeks it was AMAZING Read More
