Pumpkin Crumb Cake Recipe

So this is a special event post you guys.

It will be the final pumpkin post of the season.

Shall we have a moment of silence?

 

 

 

Ok, now that we have that out of the way.

Yeah, so I’m thinking I’m done with pumpkin.  For a while anyway.

I went through more cans of the stuff the last few months than I ever have in my life combined.

 

I’m a later bloomer in the pumpkin department..only having jumped on the bandwagon a few years ago when I realized there was more to the vegetable..fruit..whatever it is..than pie.

My mom never made cookies or muffins or blondies or frosting or cupcakes or shortbread or brownies or cake or krispie treats…it was pie. Pie all the days.

And me and pumpkin pie aren’t BFF.  It’s just never gonna happen.

 

But since I pumpkin likes to be in other desserts we have made peace.

 

Which leads me to today’s recipe.

Pumpkin Crumb Cake.

 

Y’all, it’s good stuff.

That’s a meal no one talks about…

How to Make Pumpkin Crumb Cake

So let’s discuss how to throw this together.

It’s just a few ingredients…

Sugar, of course.  But here’s the thing..it’s not overly sweet.  I promise.

You could always amp up the sweetness if you wanted to add a sweet glaze frosting to it, like I did on my Banana Bread Crumb Cake, but you absolutely don’t have to.  I didn’t!Pumpkin Crumb Cake | www.cookiesandcups.com | #pumpkin #baking #recipe #cake

And yes a whole can of pumpkin.

And some milk too…

It’s a pretty simple batter….spread it all in a 9×13…

Then make your crumb topping.

It’s just butter, flour, sugar and a tiny pinch of salt…

This easy and delicious Pumpkin Crumb Cake is the perfect weekend or holiday breakfast! Filled with the comforting flavors of pumpkin and cinnamon, this breakfast cake is unbeatable!


Ingredients:

Cake

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
  • 1 cup whole milk

Crumb

  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray, set aside.
  3. Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
  4. In large bowl beat sugar and butter together until combined. Add in eggs, vanilla and pumpkin mixing until smooth.
  5. Add dry ingredients in thirds, alternating with milk, starting and ending with dry mixture. Beat for 1 more minute until smooth, scraping sides as necessary.
  6. Spread batter into pan evenly.
  7. To make crumb mixture, cut together all ingredients using a pastry cutter or fork. I like to get in with my hands and combine the ingredients once they are all mixed, and form larger clumps of crumb.
  8. Spread this mixture on top of cake batter.
  9. Bake for 45-55 minutes until center is set and toothpick comes out clean.
  10. Can be served warm or at room temperature.

In the oven! Please adjust your site to work via Mozilla Firefox! I was in the middle of adding the ingredients for the crumb mix when my tablet browser froze. I pulled up your site on my Linux-based pc via Mozilla.. FROZE. I finished the crumb mix, at that point, and put it in the oven. If it freezes on Linux, it’s pretty bad. And I could tell it was hanging up on the advertising. Fortunately, I didn’t miss any of the crumb mix. Will see how it turns out! Thanks for the recipe.

This tastes great! My cake was a wee gooy inside. Should I’ve cooked it longer? Is the inside suppose to be like birthday cake consistency or more like a brownie?

Bernadette

I had the same problem Kristen. Hoping to get an answer about that because it was delicious otherwise! Want to make it again without the gooeyness.
