Delicious, moist cinnamon bundt cake with pecan pie filling and topped with a nutty pecan pie topping! This Pecan Pie Bundt Cake recipe is a holiday show stopper, and the perfect Thanksgiving dessert.


For the cake:

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¾ cup milk (I used skim)

For the filling

  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 ½ cups Chopped Pecans

For the topping


  1. In a sauce pan, combine the eggs, corn syrup, brown sugar, vanilla, butter, and salt. Mix over medium heat and bring to a boil. Boil one full minute. Remove from heat and fold in chopped pecans. Set aside.
  2. For the cake, grease and flour a 12-cup bundt pan and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Beat in softened butter until mixture is crumbly. Add in eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and milk and beat just until combined.
  4. Pour half of the cake batter in the bundt pan. Spoon about half of the pecan pie filling over the top. Fill with the remaining cake batter.
  5. Bake for 50-55 minutes, until lightly browned. 
  6. Cool in pan 5 minutes, then invert onto cake plate.
  7. When mostly cool (but still slightly warm), spoon remaining pecan pie filling over the top.
  8. To serve, drizzle caramel sauce right before serving and add a dollop of fresh whipped cream. ENJOY.
