Pumpkin Toffee Tea Cakes
Pumpkin Toffee Tea Cakes were the most raved over Tea Cakes we made this year for our Christmas Baking Extravaganza. My Starbucks Copycat Lemon Tea Cakes came in a close second. These lovely Tea Cakes have delightful pumpkin flavor with all the spices you enjoy with pumpkin: cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. But to blow everyone away, I added Heath English Toffee Bits. On top of that, I blast them off with Cinnamon French Toast icing! Oh my, they were absolutely amazing.
I baked over 1,000 scrumptious Tea Cakes for Christmas baking this year. Those included Red Velvet, Pina Colada, Apricot, Strawberry, Gingerbread, Starbucks Copycat Lemon, Cherry Cheesecake, Pumpkin Cranberry and Cranberry Orange to name a few. Without exception, everyone loved the idea of little individualized cakes. We’ve had so many compliments and desire by others to make these goodies.
Pumpkin Toffee Tea Cakes are excellent for holiday or Christmas baking. Everyone loves these little Tea Cakes. They’re everything you could hope for in a dessert. I guarantee they’ll wow anyone who tries them!

Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the Tea Cakes.
Place cake flour, white chocolate pudding mix, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt in a mixing bowl.
Stir ingredients really well to combine. Set aside.
In another mixing bowl, melt butter.
Add pumpkin, eggs and half-and-half.
Add vanilla extract.
Whisk ingredients until smooth.
Add pumpkin mixture to dry ingredient mixture.
Add Heath English Toffee Bits
Stir ingredients to combine.
Grease and flour two or three 20-tin miniature Bundt pans really well. Spoon pumpkin batter into tins about two-thirds full.
Bake at 350 degrees about 20 to 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. If baking more than one rack of miniature Bundt pans at a time, rotate the Bundt pans on oven racks after 10 minutes of baking time to ensure more even baking.
Allow the Tea Cakes to cool completely in pan before removing to wire racks.
I used these ingredients for the icing.
Remove lid and foil from canned frosting. Soften in microwave about 15-20 seconds. Drizzle over Tea Cakes or spoon ingredients into a zip lock bag without the bottom. Snip off corner and pipe frosting over individual cakes.
Pipe frosting over individual Tea Cakes. Some of the Tea Cakes actually got a double piping of icing.
Allow the Tea Cakes to sit out about 30-60 minutes so the icing sets up before wrapping in plastic wrap or storing in plastic containers.
The Cinnamon Toast Crunch icing has CinnaDust in it making it a really delectable icing.
Pumpkin Toffee Tea Cakes will become one of your favorite holiday treats!
You’ll be drooling from the first whiff of these lovely Tea Cakes.
