Sea Salt Caramel Pumpkin Bundt Cake

by | Nov 9, 2015 | Sweets, Thanksgiving Inspiration

Well, if you’ve read The Lush List long or follow me on Instagram, you know I can’t resist anything Sea Salt or Caramel and if combined, all the better!  Kale Chips, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Carmel Apple Hand Pies…you name it.

When I shared my lack of inspiration with my girls and they suggested making things with pumpkin, this is one of the recipes that resulted.  One other was Spaghetti Squash with Pumpkin Sage Cream sauce.  Lot’s of great feed back on that recipe.  If you’ve not tried it, you should!

This Sea Salt Caramel Pumpkin Bundt Cake is gluten free, of course, and would be perfect for Thanksgiving brunch or as a dessert.  As holiday gift or as just an afternoon treat….The perfect mix of sweet with just a touch of saltiness.
