Are you a fan of Trader Joe’s pumpkin bread mix? We are a bit obsessed and my kids are constantly asking me to make muffins, bread or really anything with the mix in the fall.
I came up with this recipe using the famed TJ’s pumpkin bread mix and let me tell you. It is SO good! The perfect combination of yummy pumpkin bread, mixed with a deliciously spicy, sweet espresso swirl in the middle and then topped with a coffee glaze. Do I have your attention yet? And by using the pumpkin bread mix, you skip all the mixing, measuring and fuss of making a cake from scratch!

Easy Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake With Coffee Glaze
Easy Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Coffee Glaze
- Bundt Cake Pan
- 2 boxes Trader Joe's Pumpkin Bread Mix prepared as directed
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 2 tbsp espresso powder or instant espresso
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice you can also just use cinnamon
- 1/3 cup strong brewed coffee
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- Whisk together the brown sugar, espresso powder and spices in a small bowl. Set aside.
To Make The Cake
- Prepare the Trader Joe's pumpkin bread mix as directed. I chose to prepare them one box at a time but you can do them together in one bowl as well. Set aside.
- Prepare your bundt cake pan. Liberally spray the pan with cooking spray making sure it is completely coated. When the cake has cooled you have to be able to flip it upside down and release from the pan.
- Now, pour 1/3 of your prepared cake mix into the bundt pan. Then sprinkle half the espresso filling on top. Fill another 1/3 of the cake mix into pan and repeat with the espresso filling. Finish with the remainder of the cake mix.
- Bake at 350F for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes in the pan. Then turn the cake onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
Make the Glaze
- While the cake is baking, mix together the coffee and granulated sugar. If the coffee is hot enough, the sugar will dissolve into the coffee.
- Once the cake has cooled, but is still warm, brush the glaze over the cake with a pastry brush. Allow the mixture to soak in before applying more glaze to prevent soggy crumbs.
- Once the cake has cooled and is ready to serve, sprinkle with powdered sugar, slice and serve with fresh whipped cream.
