Praline Glazed Pumpkin Pound Cake Tips

  1. Pumpkin puree and oil keep the cake moist.
  2. If you want a good pound cake, you have to use good ingredients: real butter, good flour. I don’t recommend store brands when baking.
  3. It’s really important also when baking to measure correctly, especially the flour. I wrote about how to measure in this post. Too much flour will result in a heavy, dry pound cake. Not enough will result in a dense, flat cake.
  4. Always, always let your butter and eggs come to room temperature when baking.
  5. Take time to cream the butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy.
  6. However, don’t overmix your ingredients when you begin adding the flour. Overmixing flour develops the glutens and will make the cake tough.
  7. Spray or grease your pans so your cake doesn’t stick
  8. Watch your cake closely and do not over bake it. I suggest calibrating your oven so the temperature is correct.
  9. Cool your cake in the pan 20 to 30 minutes, but not much longer than that. The fats in the cake need to be warm to release from the pan.

    I am going to try this recipe. Can I use real butter instead of canola oil?? I’m used to using butter. Please let me know ASAP.

  2. Can the pumpkin pound cake be frozen and the topping added on at a later date? It looks so good, especially for the holidays.

  3. I’m making this cake right now and noticed that the directions don’t include adding the vanilla. Just thought you’d like to know ! Can’t wait to try this cake!

  4. 3 stars
    The Praline Glaze Pumpkin Pound Cake turned out well but I would have liked more of the pumpkin spices. I was not a fan of the glaze.

  5. Could I use a bundt pan? I don’t have a tube. The recipes all look delicious and wanting to be tried. Thank you for all the recipes and your blogging. Please continue all your hard work.
