Scratch Pumpkin Cake Recipe

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I'm in need of a pumpkin cake recipe made from scratch. I took a look at the recipe section and a majority of them are made from cake mixes. While I prefer scratch cakes I'm not opposed to using a mix. My concern is that most of the recipes say "1 box" well as we all know the box size has changed. I'm going to assume that these recipes were developed with the larger 18.25 oz box. I really want to avoid having to buy 2 boxes to make up the ounce differential or do the math to convert. Does anyone have a scratch pumpkin cake recipe that they wouldn't mind sharing?

Thanks! Mary

I came across this one the other day, and added it to my "To Try" list. http://www.thenovicechefblog.com/2012/10/pumpkin-dream-cake/ Since I haven't tried it yet, I can't vouch for how sturdy it is, etc. But it's a lead if no one has a tried-and-true to share. icon_smile.gif

That cake looks luscious, Carrot Jockey.

Dede Wilson has an awesome pumpkin cake recipe in her wedding cakes book. I made one yesterday from the everyday food site, but haven't tried it yet.

This is my go to pumpkin cake recipe. It makes great cupcakes. It's a Paula Deen recipe, and it's called pumpkin bars, but it's definitely a cake. It's very moist, and very yummy!

FromScratchSF lists a pumpkin variant to her popular white cake on her blog. I'm not a fan of pumpkin, so I haven't tried it, but the white cake is delish!

I can't find DeDe Wilson's recipe for the above.  What is the title of the book; Does she have more than one wedding cake book.  Thank you.  Anxious to try this.  sounds great!!

Can you be more specific on where I can find this white cake recipe?  I'd like to try it.  and the pumpkin version sounds good too.  Thanks!!

I made this pumpkin cake by Crumb Boss the other day and it was the best pumpkin cake I've ever tasted. Everyone at the party loved it. Even the people who aren't big pumpkin fans said it was delicious. I filled it with cinnamon butter-cream like she said she did. She doesn't provide a recipe for that so I just made up my own.

You may want to watch the corresponding video on youtube (the link is on her recipe page) before you make it.
