Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Chocolate GlazeRecipe

We take the classic flavors of pumpkin pie (pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg) and transform them into a tall, moist, tender Bundt cake. Whole-wheat flour enhances the fall flavors without sacrificing the tender crumb. To finish it off: a smooth, shiny bittersweet chocolate glaze that drips into all the nooks and crannies. Look for baking spray (cooking spray with fine flour added), or simply coat the pan with cooking spray, add a tablespoon of flour, and shake gently to coat. If you don't have a Bundt pan, you can bake in two standard loaf pans. Cut the loaves into slices, and drizzle the glaze over each serving.

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
7 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 large eggs
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt

Preparation

Active: 21 Minutes
Total: 2 Hours, 51 Minutes

1. Preheat oven to 325°F.

2. Weigh or lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, baking powder, and next 5 ingredients (through nutmeg) in a large bowl.

3. Place butter and sugars in a bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy (about 5 minutes). Beat in vanilla. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine yogurt and pumpkin in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add flour mixture and pumpkin mixture alternately to butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Spoon batter into a 12-cup Bundt pan coated with baking spray. Bake at 325°F for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 30 minutes; remove cake from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

4. Combine milk, corn syrup, and chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave at MEDIUM (50% power) 1 minute or until melted, stirring every 20 seconds. Slowly pour chocolate mixture over cooled cake.
