1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spicePumpkin Crumb Cake Recipe

¼ teaspoon ginger

½ teaspoon coarse kosher salt

½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 cup light brown sugar, packed

2 large eggs

½ cup canned pumpkin puree

½ cup sour cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Recipe For the Streusel topping:

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup light brown sugar, packed

¼ teaspoon coarse kosher salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon

10 tablespoons (1 stick plus two tablespoons) cold butter, cut into cubes

Recipe For Pumpkin Crumb Cake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour the sides of a 9 inch springform pan and set aside.


First, prepare the streusel topping: In bowl whisk everything but the butter together until well

combined. Using a pastry blender or the tines of a fork cut in the cold butter until the mixture

resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside while you prepare the crumb cake batter.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices into a bowl; set aside. In the bowl

of a stand mixer beat the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about five minutes. Beat in

the eggs, one at a time, making sure to scrape the sides of the bowl between additions. Add in the

pumpkin puree, sour cream, and vanilla. Fold in the flour mixture by hand with a rubber spatula until

just combined, making sure not to overmix the batter.


Spread the batter into the prepared springform pan; sprinkle the streusel topping over the cake batter.

Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the streusel is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle

of the crumb cake comes out clean. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before removed the

springform pan’s sides and serving.
