Dessert Recipe // Pumpkin Cake with Vanilla Cinnamon Glaze


* Recipe by guest contributor Laney Schwartz, creator of Life is But a Dish

Welp. Here it is.

My first pumpkin recipe of the season.

Ain’t she a beauty? I know, I know. Your insta and Facebook feeds are overflowing with pumpkin recipes, apple pies, and comforting one pot wonders. Well go ahead and add this to the list. Sorry I’m not sorry. This Pumpkin Cake with Vanilla Cinnamon Glaze is B.O.M.B.

Some might even call it dangerous. WARNING: Abnormal amounts of cake consumption highly possible. Seriously though. It’s THAT good.


This recipe makes A LOT of batter. Definitely enough for you to make more than just a cake. More than just some muffins. You can make it all! And freeze some, gift some, or if you live in my house, eat all the pumpkin cake all the time every day.

You definitely don’t need to make the glaze. The recipe is perfectly delicious on it’s own. But this gooey cinnamon-y, vanilla-y glaze really hits the spot and takes this cake to the next level. So while it’s not totally necessary, it’s kind of a game changer.


Did I mention that I’m SO over this LA heat? Oh, only a million times in my last post about Butternut Squash Soup. Well yeah. This cake is yet another attempt to make it feel like fall in LA.


And I win again.
