This Coffee-House inspired favorite boasts of a rich pumpkin cake and a white chocolate drizzle for a yearlong dessert that is sure to please.
When I first started Living the Gourmet, it was simply used as a space to store my family’s favorite recipes. I wanted my children to always have these meals with them, so they could go back and make them on their own and for their families someday. Those who grew up in a traditional Italian home can attest that our mothers and grandmothers never followed a recipe. They each had their own way of cooking and knowing exactly how much of this and how much to that…It’s a habit that was passed down to me.
Probably one of the most difficult aspects for me was getting into the habit of measuring. However difficult it might have been though, I knew how important it was for me to pass these recipes down to my children, because I wish my mother had done the same.
I have often said the kitchen is more than a place where meals are created; it is where memories are made over meals that are meant to be shared. Cooking has a way of simultaneously evoking memories while creating new ones. It is the greatest form of love we can share.
I guess that brings us to today’s recipe. This White Chocolate Pumpkin Bundt reminds me not only of my favorite season but also my favorite local coffee shop.
This month #BundtBakers is celebrating Coffee Shop favorites and while my fellow bakers have been inspired by their favorite coffee shop drinks, I decided to recreate my favorite coffee shop cake.
Many thanks to our lovely hostess Felice, from All That’s Left Are The Crumbs, and don’t forget to scroll down to the end of the post and check out all the goodies from this month’s bakers.
There is a pumpkin coffee cake that I absolutely love that is served only in the fall at my nearest cafe. Today’s recipe is a twist on that cherished cake. First and foremost, unlike its inspiration, I baked mine in a bundt pan. There is nothing more comforting than a bundt cake in my opinion. Secondly, it is topped with a white chocolate drizzle than just a simple icing.
Serve this alongside a hot cup of coffee (or your favorite tea, if you prefer) and enjoy whenever you please. Who says pumpkin desserts are exclusive only to Autumn? This cake is a yearlong treat that will satisfy no matter the season or occasion.
Thank you so much for joining us this month. Enjoy with Love!
