Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 2/3 cups flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup applesauce
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 15 ounce can pumpkin
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 cup confectioners sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 inch bundt pan.

In a medium bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder and baking soda. In a large bowl, beat together 3/4 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, applesauce and eggs. Mix in 1/2 cup heavy cream and pumpkin. Stir into the flour mixture just until blended. Spread evenly in the prepared pan.

Bake 40 minutes in the oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan over a wire rack. Invert cake onto a serving plate.

Place the brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter and 1/3 cup heavy cream in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil while stirring to blend until smooth. Cook until sugar is dissolved. Whisk in the confectioners sugar and drizzle over the cake immediately.
