The most popular spices for pumpkin cakes among home bakers are cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves. All of these spices are also found in pumpkin pie spice. Many pumpkin cake recipes include instructions on how much pumpkin pie spice and how much of each individual spice to use.
Pumpkin cakes are almost always made with canned pumpkin or freshly cooked puree. Pumpkin puree is simply pumpkins that have been boiled, baked, steamed, or pressure-cooked until soft and then blended into a smooth pulp. If you choose homemade puree instead of canned pumpkin, be sure to choose a pumpkin that is not too watery. One of the best pumpkins for cakes and pies is butternut squash.
