My favorite thing about this time of year (besides the food, of course) is the time spent across the table with friends and family–there’s nothing better than that. This year I’ll be headed to Friendsgiving with these Mini Pumpkin Bundt Cakes drizzled with salted caramel and a bottle of Peaks & Tides Cabernet Sauvignon.
And guess what? I got everything I needed to make these little crowd pleasing gluten free pumpkin treats from ALDI—my favorite grocery store because of its high quality offerings for any diet at affordable prices. Use this link to find a store near you.

- Preheat the oven to 350 F and prepare a mini bundt cake pan with non-stick spray and a dusting of gluten free flour to further prevent sticking. In a large bowl, stir together the gluten free flour, almond flour, spices, baking soda, baking powder and salt.In another bowl, use a handheld mixer to beat the eggs, pumpkin, brown sugar, almond milk and vanilla until smooth. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir until no dry spots remain. Try not to over mix. Fill 8 mini bundt cake molds with batter and bake them for 16-18 minutes. Remove and let cool.
- Meanwhile, empty the can of coconut milk in a sauce pan over medium heat. Add in the coconut sugar and salt. Whisk until well combined. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Let the mixture simmer for 30-40 minutes or until the caramel sauce has thickened and darkened in color. At this time, stir in the coconut oil and vanilla then remove from the heat. Drizzle caramel over the cakes and top with pumpkin seeds/pepitas and serve.
What mini bundt pan do you use?
I used the Nordic Ware Heritage Bundtlette. You can see it pictured above. Hope you enjoy this recipe!
Hello, could you please advice on the recipe: how many grams of each ingredients I should to use? Btw, what is the size of the cup?
I like this idea, but I’m curious if it could be adapted for an apple pie lover by swapping pumpkin purée for apple sauce. Thoughts?
Hi, Yes, I think that should work out! 🙂 Please let me know how it tastes! Happy Holidays!
I want to make this and use the carmel sauce my question is I never know when the recipe calls for canned coconut milk or cream if you should use the whole can water and all of his the stuff off the top . Please help me out with this. I am also new to your blog and stumbled upon it and love it and can’t wait to make a few things this weekend.
I use full fat coconut milk and just give it a shake before using it although I think the cream will also work (possibly even a better option). So glad you found my blog! Please let me know if you have any other questions. 🙂
