This is a double layer gluten-free chai pumpkin cake with spiced buttercream frosting. The cake is nothing short of deliciousness! I am very excited how this cake turned out, it’s truly a Thanksgiving dessert.

I know traditionally it is pumpkin pie or pecan pie, but this year I wanted to go all out, so I created this heavenly gluten-free chai pumpkin cake with spiced buttercream frosting. Do I have your attention now?

The two layers are moist, light and infused with chai spices. Then I generously frosted the cake with spiced buttercream frosting, making this dessert outstanding!  I must admit the spiced buttercream frosting is what makes this cake.

By using pumpkin in this recipe I was able to cut back on fat. Pumpkin is also known for its many health benefits, so it is a win-win in this dessert recipe.

Best part, there is nothing complicated about this cake. To make this dessert more festive add some berries or edible flowers. Believe me, your family will be impressed, it is that delicious 🙂

Hi Amirah, I would substitute finely grated apples for the pumpkin. I have not tried it with apples, but it should work. If you do make it please let us know how the cake turned out. thank you :-)
