This Keto Pumpkin Bundt Cake will be a hit with any pumpkin lover! I can’t get over just how good the cinnamon roll glaze is, you’ll want to eat it with a spoon.

Sometimes low-carb cakes have a dry texture but the pumpkin puree and eggs keep this cake light and airy. For just one bowl and simple ingredients this cake may just become your go-to base cake recipe. For those times when you need a cake that’s not pumpkin flavored you can swap the pumpkin out for banana, or even apple sauce. I love versatile recipes!

My daughter in law can't have dairy so I replaced the butter with refined coconut oil and it turned out amazing!  Absolutely delicious recipe.

Thank you Anne, I'm glad you enjoyed!

Do you think this could be made as a cake instead?

Reply

Absolutely! Maybe filled with cinnamon buttercream? 😊

Just wanted to know, love that this is Keto friendly, would this also be considered Gluten Free? I'm Celiac and would love to incorporate this into my baking repertiore ...but need to know if it would be considered Gluten Free. From what I can see I want to think so, but just wanted to be sure. Thanks !

Reply

Absolutely! All of our recipes are gluten-free. I hope you like it! 😊

This was AMAZING! So quick to put together and so, so idiot proof 😂 The only thing I changed was to use salted butter in the glaze and I'm so glad I did, I really think the slight saltiness offset the sweetness of the cake beautifully, it almost tastes like salted caramel! This is a gorgeous, moist cake, so light and so moreish. Thank you so much, this is a new favourite.

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback, Anu I haven't thought of using salted butter but now that you said it I'll give it a go!

Is the powdered version of the sweetener necessary? Can I use granulated instead?

Reply

You can use granulated sweetener in the cake but not in the frosting. If you do, remember that one cup of powdered sweetener weighs less than granulated (for the same effect use 210 g/ 7.4 oz in the cake).

OMG, this is the most delicious thing I have ever eaten! Keto, or not. Thank you!

Thank you Raegan!

Hi I was wondering if you can make this with coconut or gf flour? I’m allergic to nuts but I’d love to try it.

Reply

Hi April, you can do that but you will need to adjust the amount of liquid ingredients. So for every cup of almond flour, you should use about 1/3 cup of coconut flour, plus increase the amount of eggs (you may need to use as many as 10-12 eggs). I hope this helps!

Ok. I just have to take a moment to give you a HUGE shout out for this AMAZING recipe! I made this during the Thanksgiving holiday and have made it a few time since because we love it so much!
I altered the recipe just a wee bit. I swapped out the Swerve with 1/2 cup coconut flour and 1 cup of coconut sugar, dumped in the whole can of pumpkin and added in about 1&1/2 cups of chopped walnuts and pecans. However, most hilariously, when adding the "pumpkin spice" I opted for the make your own and proceeded to add all the measurements for the pumpkin spice recipe (oops) realizing later that I was supposed to blend all the spices and then only add 2 tsp of the mixture. However, we loved it with all the spice so in all future versions I've added the whole amount. LOL. At least it was a happy accident.
Then, for the topping, I whipped 1 cup heavy cream, 1 cup of mascarpone,  and 1 tsp of vanilla. I kept this separate and whenever we sliced off a piece of cake I "buttered" the cake with the frosting.  
This dessert was an enormous hit with family and friends!!! Well done. Thanks for sharing it on your blog!
Sincerely,
Ann

LOVE THIS. I made them into cupcakes to test the recipe since I don't have a bundt pan. modified the proportions a little since I have truvia (good conversion chart here for anyone looking https://www.wholesomeyum.com/natural-low-carb-sweeteners-guide-conversion-chart/ ). Ended up breaking my glaze by reheating it too many times ( would recommend starting the glaze right before the cake comes out of the oven so as to avoid this dilemma.
Anyways, I cut each cupcake in half and added a cream cheese frosting and crumbled my broken glaze inside, ended up tasting like a pumpkin coffee cake and it is TO DIE FOR.

Thank you for your kind words!

Made this for Thanksgiving, and was all eaten before our family left the table.  And I'm the only one Keto.  Will definitely repeat for Christmas.  Delish.  (I did make it using a little less sweetener.)

Reply

Getting ready to make.  Concerns...seems like a lots of erithertol.  I use pyure and it is twice as sweet as swerve.  So will add in half cup increments.  Also... recommend for freezing?  TKS for sharing.

Reply

Hi Patricia, I use less sweetener in most treats but this depends on your palate. If you want to cut down on the sweetness, use less sweetener in the cake (this should not affect the texture). I wouldn't recommend reducing the sweetener in the glaze as that may affect the texture. Or you could sub some or all of the sweetener with melted coconut butter which is what I like to use in glazes to reduce sweetness: Foolproof Homemade Coconut Butter

Ok well I've gone and done it.  I've made numerous recipes with almond flour.  Never happy with results. Don't like the texture of almond flour.  So this was my last ditch effort.  OMG so divine!  So thankful for a recipe that was successful and versitile. I used pyure and only 1/2 cup..plenty Sweet...went slowly and carefully through the recipe, checking, rechecking ingredients and measurements.  Got it into oven and made the glaze.  I must of been anxious to get it on the cake as I left it cool and poured it on...only to realize I forgot to take it out of the pan..woops!  So that was fun and lost a chunk along the way.  We made a whip cream/cream cheese topping and it was to die for.  Plenty Sweet. Next time... probably will not do the glaze..
But thanks so much for a great recipe posted on my birthday.  Best present I received.

Oh my this is soooo good and so easy!!! I love the addition of pumpkin, it makes such a big difference and the texture is wonderful. My kids literally attacked it! The only thing I'm not sure about is whether we'll have any left for tomorrow 😊 Thank you Lauren!

I followed this recipe to the T same ingredients. Nit the same results. Trash can

Reply

Mine is amazing and I didn't even weigh the ingredients. What is it that you didn't like? Do you live in high altitudes? That may affect the baking.

Reply

This was my first bundt cake and I threw it together in a rush...but despite both those things the cake was WONDERFUL.  This is by far the best gluten free/keto baked good I’ve had so far and it was a crowd pleaser.  We had a family over for dinner including their 12 yo daughter with celiac’s.  Everyone loved it!

Reply

Oh that's wonderful! I'm glad you enjoyed! 😊

Hi Martina,
If you use banana or apple sauce instead of pumpkin, it should still be keto right?

Reply

Hi Amy, you could use apple sauce but the carbs will go up (they will double). You should avoid bananas if you follow a keto diet. Check out our food list: Complete Keto Diet Food List: What to Eat and Avoid on a Low-Carb Diet

Thanks!  I thought so! 🤗

Reply

Do you think this recipe would work as cupcakes?
Sounds yummy!

Reply

Absolutely! You will just need to adjust the cooking time and only bake them for 30-35 minutes.

Reply

I was wondering if I can use stevia/truvia powdered sugar?  I don't see the ingredients you use in the store where I shop.
Thanks so much!

Reply

Hi Nola, yes, you can use other low-carb alternatives - just make sure there is no added sugar in the product. This may help: Complete Guide To Sweeteners on a Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet

Love this.  Mine is in the oven now! The house smells like fall!  Thank you for the recipe.
Quick question. Was thinking of doing a spiced cream cheese frosting instead of the glaze. Thoughts?

You can try the frosting on these cupcakes 😊 Healthy Low-Carb Halloween Spiderweb Cupcakes
