And so the autumn baking begins! Which means pumpkin, pumpkin, and more pumpkin. Let me start off by bringing you my deliciously moist Cheesecake Swirl Pumpkin Bundt Cake.

Pumpkin and cheesecake lovers, welcome! Come and grab a slice or two.

One of my favourite things to bake are Bundt cakes. You can make such a beautiful cake with minimal effort, and that’s why I love them.

Many people are intimidated by Bundt cakes, and the biggest reason for that having the cakes break on you when trying to remove them from their pans.

Just make sure to generously grease the pans with room temperature butter, or a good baking spray, and invert the cake onto a wire rack or serving plate after 10 minutes of cooling.

Be VERY generous with your greasing, and the cake should fall straight out the pan!

How to make Cheesecake Swirl Pumpkin Bundt Cake

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • Cake flour: See my recipe notes below on how to make your own if you can’t get hold of any.
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Ground cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg
  • Large eggs
  • Caster/granulated sugar
  • Light brown sugar
  • Unsalted butter
  • Greek-style yogurt
  • Canned pumpkin puree

For the Cheesecake Filling:

  • Cream cheese
  • Caster/granulated sugar
  • Large egg
  • Vanilla extract
  • Plain/all-purpose flour

And finally, for the frosting:

  • Icing/powdered sugar
  • Cream cheese
  • Heavy/double cream
  • Vanilla extract

To make this pumpkin cake, simply start by whisking together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Set aside.

Whisk together the eggs. Add the sugars, and whisk until combined. Add the melted butter, yogurt, and pumpkin puree, and whisk until combined. Fold in the dry ingredients.

Pour half of the batter into a well-greased 10-inch bundt pan.

For the filling, beat the cream cheese and sugar until combined. Beat in the egg and vanilla, then fold in the flour.

Spread the cheesecake mixture evenly over the cake batter, then pour the remaining cake batter on top.

Bake for about 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean with moist crumbs.

Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before inverting the cake onto a wire rack or serving plate to cool completely.

For the frosting, whisk together the icing sugar, cream cheese, heavy cream, and vanilla extract until smooth, fairly thick and pourable. Add more heavy cream if needed.

Pour over the cooled cake (or pipe it on using a piping bag), then slice and serve.

The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

This looks so incredibly delicious and moist I think I'm going to make it this weekend. It's definitely not fall yet but if I crank down The a/c I can pretend.

Great recipe! I can't wait to taste this.

There is an asterisk * next to "3 Cups of Cake flour" but no corresponding note. It might be important to note that 3 cups of Cake flour only equals 2 1/2 cups plus 2 Tablespoons of all-purpose or unbleached flour. If All-purpose flour is substituted equally for cake flour, the cake will be heavy and dry.

Thank you for pointing that out! Corrected it :) I can't get hold of cake flour here in the UK and always use a combination of plain/all-purpose flour and cornflour/cornstarch, and it always results in a light, moist and fluffy cake.

This cake looks deeevine! If I have homemade pumpkin puree that I've frozen, can I use it for this cake?

Homemade pumpkin puree is fine! Just thaw it before use :)
