Easy and hearty Oatmeal Pumpkin Bundt Cake Recipe that is super moist! No frosting needed. Just dust with powdered sugar. Thanksgiving Day dessert idea.
Let me tell you I am loving my bundt pan…I honestly don’t know how I survived for so long without it! This Oatmeal Pumpkin Bundt Cake was super easy and came out pretty and perfect (if I do say so myself.) I can’t take much of the credit though. A few months ago I purchased this bundt pan from Williams-Sonoma.

I first used it when I made a Zucchini Bundt Cake and was sold immediately. It’s a bit of an investment but worth every penny. This is the sort of thing I like to ask my family to get me for Christmas. I would have added this to my Christmas list but I couldn’t wait! I think kitchen items that are a bit pricey make lovely and thoughtful gifts. They are most likely something you wouldn’t buy yourself and to me that makes a gift even more special.
Oatmeal Pumpkin Bundt Cake
- 1 c. quick cooking oatmeal
- 1/4 c. boiling water
- 1 c. brown sugar
- 1 c. white sugar
- 1 c. butter softened
- 4 eggs
- 1 c. canned pumpkin puree
- 2 t. vanilla
- 3 c. Flour
- 1 T. pumpkin pie spice
- 2 t. baking soda
- 1 t. salt
- Powdered Sugar optional
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Put oatmeal in a small bowl and add boiling water. Stir and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl combine sugars and butter until fluffy.
- Add eggs one at a time while still mixing.
- Add the pumpkin, oatmeal mixture and vanilla until well blended.
- Add the flour, one cup at a time, while mixer is still going.
- Add pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt.
- Blend well scraping sides of bowl.
- Pour into prepared bundt pan. Bake for 50 - 60 min. until a pick inserted in center comes out clean. Watch the cake at the end so it doesn't over bake.
- Cool completely and dust with powdered sugar if desired.
The thing I love most about this oatmeal pumpkin bundt cake is the hearty, almost nutty texture. It’s clearly a dessert…but if you put this batter in a muffin pan it could totally be breakfast! Not the healthiest choice maybe…but pretty delicious. This is the perfect dessert for a family gathering, pot luck or Thanksgiving Day because it is huge. You could easily get 15 servings.
Note: I had some questions about the amount of boiling water. 1/4 cup is correct!
I hope you give this a try…and if you need more ideas I’ve got you covered.

p.s. Williams-Sonoma isn’t paying me to rave about their bundt pan.
I just think it’s marvelous so thought I would share.
