  • 2 1/4 cups white whole wheat flour plus additional for dusting pan
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried orange peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 cups canned solid-pack pumpkin not pie filling
  • 3/4 cup well-shaken buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 Tablespoons 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened and cut up
  • 1 1/4 cups turbinado raw sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup white chocolate morsels the real deal!
  • 1 cup dried cranberries craisins


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare your bundt pan by greasing well and flouring. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ground ginger, orange peel, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, buttermilk, and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle, cream the butter and sugar. Beat for 3-5 minutes.
  • Once nice and fluffy, beat in the eggs, one at a time, until each is incorporated.
  • With the mixer on medium-low, blend in the dry and wet ingredients, alternating additions so that you start with dry and end with dry (dry, wet, dry, wet, dry). Mix until just incorporated.
  • Remove bowl from mixer and stir in the white chocolate and dried cranberries.
  • Spoon into the prepared bundt pan and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the middle of a section comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan for 15 minutes.
  • Run a butter knife around the edges to be sure they're loosened, then put a wire rack over the top of the pan and invert. If the cake does not easily come out, set it back upright and let it cool for 5-10 more minutes before trying again.


I didn't get to plate mine in a pretty manner, but my plan was to just dust with confectioners sugar.
