How do you know when pumpkin bundt cake is done baking?

Bundt cakes take longer to bake than many other cake types. Insert a toothpick into the center of the cake (halfway between the inner tube and the outer wall of the cake). When the toothpick comes out clean, your pumpkin bundt cake is done! Learn what to watch for in our cake doneness guide.

How do you store pumpkin bundt cake?

Store the cake, covered, at room temperature for up to 4 days. For longer storage, wrap securely in food wrap and foil, and freeze the unsliced cake for a few months. If you like this recipe, try your hand at more old-fashioned fall desserts.
