Pumpkin Pound Cake

Simple Clean and Homemade I Pumpkin Pound Cake

I am really excited to share this with you. I wanted to share it on Monday, but I had JUST shared my pumpkin muffins and I don’t want to wear out the pumpkin thing too early. So I waited as long as I could. There is so much that I love about this pound cake.

I love how well balanced this cake is. It is just a little buttery. It is dense but not too dense. And most importantly, it pairs well with fluffy homemade whipped cream.

Ingredients (8-10 servings)

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour


Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a loaf pan by coating with cooking spray.

Combine butter, pumpkin, egg, yogurt, sugar, vanilla, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon until the spices are incorporated. Add the flours and stir until the batter is no longer lumpy. Pour into the prepared loaf pan.
