This is just a simple pumpkin bundt cake with a vanilla glaze. It’s easy. It’s straight forward. It’s grain free, gluten free, keto friendly, and dairy free.
Last year I made a cream cheese stuffed pumpkin bundt cake with a cream cheese glaze, which is a little richer. This year I wanted to show you how to make a simpler keto pumpkin bundt cake, great for the lunch box, snacking or even breakfast.
First, how are you doing? It’s been a rough few weeks. We just lost thirteen servicemen in Afghanistan and many others lost their lives in a bombing at the Kabul airport. The news go so fast, it almost feels like that happened a year ago, but in those parents’s hearts, it’s very fresh.
I saw a father of one of the marines being interviewed, and I think it’s important to see that. He had been extremely anxious all day, not hearing from his son, and he was trying to figure out timing. If his son was one of the 13, what time would they show up?
Imagine that kind of anxiety! He was watching his front of the house through a camera, as he wanted to go outside to meet them, so his wife wouldn’t answer the door. This story grieved me deeply, and although I am reminded of how blessed I am in this moment, I still feel the stress and pain of this situation.
I know you probably are too, and that’s why it’s even more important to grab your family, your close friends and celebrate each moment at the table, enjoying the simple yet most important things in life.
I encourage you to invite people into your circle and celebrate your relationships. Fall brings cooler weather, heavier food, and dishes that often have memories attached. Eating together is one of the ways we build our support system, show love and create bonds. Of course, I still recommend eating as healthy as one can to keep your immune system strong. That’s why we still are sugar free and grain free in our household. You can do this too.
Tips For Making Bundt Cake
- Heavily butter your bundt pan.
- Place buttered bundt pan in freezer. Helps prevent over-browning.
- When ready to bake, spray again with baking spray.
- Test cake after 25 minutes. Cake is done at 210 F., 99 C. (I take out at 207).
- Set a timer for 15 minutes upon removal from oven.
- Use a silicone knife to gently go around the edges now and do this again at 15 minutes.
- Use a cake board to turn over.
- Cool completely before adding glaze.
