Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Can't find spice cake mix? Substitute yellow cake mix and 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice instead.
  • Tip 2
    To toast walnuts, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until walnuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until walnuts are light brown.
  • Tip 3
    This cake was photographed using a heritage bundt pan. Deeper pans like the heritage pan may require an additional 2 to 7 minutes of bake time.
