Pumpkin spice is in the air.
Nothing is quite as autumnal as a pumpkin dessert. We have already waxed poetic about our pumpkin pies, but we’re just as enthusiastic about our pumpkin cake recipes. They’re warm and nostalgic, light and sweet. They’re the perfect blend of autumnal flavors and an ideal offering for a celebration during the fall months. Bake up a pumpkin cake, such as the Pumpkin Pound Cake with Buttermilk Glaze or our Pumpkin Cheesecake, for a lovely treat this season.
Marbled Pumpkin Praline Cake
Recipe: Marbled Pumpkin Praline Cake
This cake is a gorgeous combination of pumpkin batter, cream cheese batter, pecan-praline filling, and spiced whipped cream. You’re welcome.
Recipe: Pumpkin Cheesecake
One of the showstopping features of this cake is the crust. We used a combination of chocolate and cinnamon graham crackers to create the golden ombre effect. Plus, it tastes amazing. This is the easiest cheesecake recipe you’ll make all year.
Recipe: Pumpkin Roll
This dessert is the best of both worlds, with a moist pumpkin cake rolled into an indulgent spiral alongside a smooth cream cheese-peanut butter filling. This is a fantastic make-ahead dessert, and it can feed a crowd. We like to garnish this autumnal roll with chocolate-dipped pecans for an extra special touch.
Pumpkin Spice-Heath Cake
Recipe: Pumpkin Spice-Heath Cake
This might just be the most beloved of our pumpkin cake recipes. It’s the ultimate cozy indulgence, with a perfect balance of sweetness and spice that is the season’s calling card. The best part? The cake is built from a boxed spice cake mix, which gives you just enough of a shortcut so that you can focus on the embellishment, namely crumbling the toffee bits and blending the sweet, spiced cream cheese frosting.
Recipe: Cranberry-Apple-Pumpkin Bundt
Three favorite fall flavors combine in this beloved Bundt cake. Cranberry, apple, and pumpkin, all in a beautiful Bundt? It’s a win-win-win for the dessert table.
Recipe: Pumpkin Crisp
This is the perfect dessert to feed a crowd at dinner. This seasonal crisp is the utterly irresistible combination of moist cake, sweet pumpkin, and crunchy pecans. With only eight essential ingredients, this recipe couldn’t be easier to make—or more delicious after dinner, for a midday snack, or as a midnight nibble.

Heading to a dinner party this fall? This is the dessert you should take with you. It’s a pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and cheesecake hybrid that will intrigue and delight. Add the optional praline topping to make it a real showstopper.
