Pumpkin Bundts with Brown Butter Glaze and Candied Pecans #FallFlavors

I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid 
in the creation of the #FallFlavors recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Welcome to Flavors of Fall where we celebrate all things associated with fall like squash, apples, pecans, sweaters, football; you get the idea!  Ellen from Family Around the Table and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures have gathered 24 bloggers who have over 100 recipes they’re sharing this week in celebration of cool weather and sweatshirts.  We hope you find many must make recipes so get your pinning, tweeting, and sharing fingers ready!

I wanted to share a simple pumpkin dessert with you and these mini pumpkin bundts are perfect for the season. Using a pumpkin bread mix, you bake these mini bundts in a special bundt pan. They don't take long to bake. Then that delicious browned butter glaze goes on top, and that's when you know you have something very special. It is delicious! Spoonfuls of it ended up in my belly!  You do have to taste what you make, you know.

The candied pecans are directly from Millican Pecan.  They are the go-to source for your pecan needs. I chose the candied ones since this was a dessert, but the whole pecans and half pecans are perfect, too. They are so fresh, and that means these pecans are sold the same year they are picked, not stored for the next season!

Making browned butter is easy, too, and I cannot wait for you to taste the glaze. That browned butter surely elevates the glaze to a whole different level.
