Pumpkin Cake Balls

Hi I hope you all are having a great Tuesday šŸ™‚ Is anyone else having a hard time grasping the fact that it’s already December?! I haven’t even started my Christmas shopping yet!

But I have been baking (and eating) tons so I want to share this delicious recipe for the Pumpkin Cake Balls that I made for Thanksgiving.

I was helping my mom organize her recipe box and came across this sticky note:

Pumpkin Cake Recipe

No instructions or anything and adding “Pumpkin Cake”Ā was clearly an afterthought. I was 99% sure it was this delicious recipe my friend had shared with me in college, so IĀ super excited when I found it and just had to make it for Thanksgiving!

My mom can’t stop talking about these Red Velvet Cake Balls I made a couple months ago so when I told her my plan to make a cake for Thanksgiving, she asked if I thought I could turn itĀ into Pumpkin Cake Balls. Challenge accepted.

I baked the cake as directed butĀ there were no directions on the sticky note, so I just poured all of the ingredients into the bowl and let the KitchenAid mixer work it’s magic.

Pumpkin Cake Batter

I poured the batter into a greased bundt pan and baked it at 350 for about an hour (I had to keep checking it because I had noo idea how long it was supposed to bake for). IĀ sliced aboutĀ one thirdĀ of it to serve as cake and used the remainder for the cake balls.

I mashed the remainder of the cake and added about half a can of vanilla icing (I’m sure cream cheese icing would taste delicious as well) and mixed it all together. I let it chill in the freezer for about 30 minutes, then rolled them into balls and put them back in the freezer. The next morning, I dipped the balls in almond bark (some chocolate, some vanilla) and drizzled with the opposite flavor almond bark. They will definitely be making an appearance next year šŸ™‚
