I only have one recipe for pumpkin cake, and this is it. Pumpkin and brown butter are a match made in heaven. This cake is so moist, it just melts in your mouth.
Brown Butter Glaze:
To prepare the cake:
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Grease and flour a 9-inch, Bundt pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, beat sugar and eggs until well blended and light in color. Add oil and vanilla and continue to beat.
Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt to the egg mixture and stir to combine.
Add pumpkin puree and mix well. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Let stand in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto baking rack to cool completely.
Once the cake has cooled, place it on a serving platter and make the glaze.
To prepare the glaze:
In a medium bowl, add the powdered sugar and set aside while you make the brown butter.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Continue to cook, swirling the pot occasionally until the butter boils and becomes foamy. It will turn golden brown and start to smell nutty. Once the butter stops sizzling and the foam subsides, it is ready. Keep an eye on it because you don't want it to burn. This could take 5 to 8 minutes.
Spoon the warm glaze over the cooled cake and allow the glaze to set before serving.
Store at room temperature.
