Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

I have always loved pumpkin and I really like using it into various dessert recipes as it brings a great flavor and texture. This Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bundt Cake is moist, rich and very flavorful.

I really love the intense color pumpkin gives to cakes and the cream cheese filling in this one is a great addition. With this creamy interior this bundt cake doesn’t even need an icing on top but feel free to add it if you like it best.

This Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bundt Cake is by far one of the best desserts for pumpkin season, so hope you will try it out. Enjoy!
