Preserve Company Pumpkin Cakes with Vanilla Bourbon Glaze


These are our perfectly spiced, rich, and super moist pumpkin cake topped with a smooth Roobios Vanilla Burbon glaze. A fun and cozy addition to the autumn baking list!  Enjoy!

9 Pumpkin Cakes (1 ½ cup each)
12 cupcakes

1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
¾ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
½ cup canola oil
2 large eggs
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup white sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp vanilla

2 tsp Roobios Vanilla Bourbon Loose-Leaf Tea
¼ cup + 2 Tbsp warm milk
1 ½ cup icing sugar

- Preheat oven to 350° and spray your pan with non-stick cooking spray.

- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice. In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, canola oil, eggs, vanilla, and both sugars.

- Stir the wet ingredients into the dry, making sure to just mix until combined. Scoop batter into prepared tins, and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Set aside to cool as you make the glaze.

- To make the glaze start by heating up your milk to just below a simmer in a small saucepan. Remove from heat and add in your Rooibos Bourbon Vanilla Loose-Leaf. Steep the tea in the milk for 10-12 minutes with the lid on the pot. Strain tea out by pouring the milk through a fine mesh strainer over a separate bowl.

- Sift the icing sugar and pour in ¼ cup of the milk mixture. Add more milk 1 tsp at a time until you reach a pouring consistency. Pour glaze over each individual pumpkin cake.

- These can be kept at room temperature in an air-tight container for up to 4 days.

Do you know if I baked it in a full size bundt pan instead, how long would I bake it?

WOW! What a BEAUTIFUL tea pot! It would be a great Auction item for one of the Elk’s Veterans Fundraiser. I see the small cake tins. Do you sell them Bruce?

I made these yesterday and the taste and the texture is amazing. Eating one leaves one wanting to have another one. Highly recommend this recipe. Sadly I did not have the tea, we just ate them plain.

What a fantastic recipe! I want to try as soon as possible, even though I already know it won’t be the same without your products, sigh!
I hope you can soon ship to Europe too.
Meanwhile, my best congratulations!
P.S. My best regards to Bruce!
