  • Cook Time: 35-45 minutes



  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1½ teaspoons pumpkin-pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon crystallized ginger, chopped fine

Cinnamon Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2. For the angel food cake: In a small bowl, combine the pumpkin, pumpkin-pie spice, vanilla, and ginger. Set aside.
3. Prepare the angel food cake batter according to the package directions. Carefully fold the pumpkin mixture into the cake batter. Spoon the batter into an ungreased angel food cake pan.
4. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until the cake is golden and springs back when touched. Let the cake cool completely in the pan. Carefully remove the cake from the pan and set on a serving plate.
