Instructions


For the cake:
Preheat oven to 325°. Grease a 14 cup Bundt pan and sprinkle turbinado sugar around the pan. Set aside.
Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves together and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar and brown sugar together for 3 minutes, scraping the bowl down as needed. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping the bowl down in between additions. Add vanilla.
Add ½ the dry ingredients followed by all of the sour cream. Blend in remaining dry ingredients. Mix in pumpkin puree.
Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake at 325° for 75 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes.
Transfer cake to cooling rack and cool completely.
For the caramel sauce:
Place butter, brown sugar and salt in small saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for two minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cream. Set aside to cool completely, stirring occasionally.
Transfer to a liquid measuring cup and very lightly drizzle one layer of caramel sauce over the cake. Allow to set.
Transfer cake to a serving plate. Serve the cake with warm caramel sauce on the side.
Betsy's tidbits:
Place a piece of wax paper under the cooling rack before drizzling the caramel sauce over the cake.
Pumpkin Bundt Cake is delicious warm or cold.
Try scooping cinnamon ice cream over a slice of the cake and then drizzling caramel sauce on top.
The caramel sauce is also delicious to dip apples into.
