  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder* 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the powdered sugar glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 12-cup bundt cake pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate large bowl, cream together the butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Alternate between adding the dry ingredients and the milk to the wet ingredients, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Blend until just combined – don’t overmix!
  • Pour the batter into your prepared bundt pan.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let the cake cool in the pan for 15-20 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • While the cake cools, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk for the glaze. Start with 2 tablespoons of milk and add more for a thinner consistency.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake


  1. For a stronger spice flavor, increase the amount of cinnamon or nutmeg.
  2. Don’t overbake! For a moist cake, start checking for doneness around the 40 minute mark.
  3. This cake is delicious on its own, but try adding chopped pecans or walnuts to the batter for extra crunch.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why did my bundt cake sink in the middle?

A cake sinking in the middle usually means it wasn’t cooked long enough. Your oven temperature may be off, so try using an oven thermometer.

Yes. A 9×13 inch baking pan will also work for this recipe. Adjust the bake time accordingly.

How should I store leftover bundt cake?

Store leftover cake in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

My glaze is too thick, what should I do?

Add a bit more milk, one teaspoon at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.

Can I freeze spice bundt cake?

Yes. Wrap the cake tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil. Freeze for up to three months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.
