EASY Pumpkin Crumb Cake Recipe

Melissa Jo


  • 1 box of white cake mix
  • 15 oz. can of pure pumpkin
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup of sugar
  • 3 tbsp of cinnamon
  • 1.5 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsalted butter Sliced and cold


Step 1: Preparing the Oven and Baking Dish

  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (163 degrees Celsius).
  • Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray, ensuring even coverage.

Step 2: Mixing Pumpkin and Cake Mix

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the contents of the white cake mix box and the 15 oz. can of pure pumpkin.
  • Stir the mixture until it reaches a thick and well-combined consistency.

Step 3: Baking the Base

  • Transfer the pumpkin and cake mix mixture to the prepared baking dish.
  • Spread the mixture evenly in the dish.
  • Bake in the preheated oven at 325 F for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Step 4: Crafting the Crumb Topping

  • While the base is baking, prepare the crumb topping.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of flour, sugar, sliced cold butter, vanilla extract, and cinnamon.
  • Use your hands or a pastry cutter to work the mixture until pea-sized crumbly balls form.

Step 5: Applying the Crumb Topping

  • Once the base is fully baked, allow it to cool for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the cooled base.

Step 6: Final Baking and Enjoying

  • Place the baking dish back into the oven at 325 F for an additional 10-15 minutes.
  • The crumb topping should turn golden brown and crisp during this final baking step.
  • Once done, remove the Pumpkin Crumb Cake from the oven and let it cool slightly.
  • Slice the cake into delicious servings and savor the delightful blend of flavors and textures.


  • For a more pronounced pumpkin flavor, consider adding a pinch of nutmeg or cloves to the cake mix.
  • If you prefer a lighter crumb topping, use a fork to gently mix the topping ingredients instead of forming pea-sized balls.
  • Serve the Pumpkin Crumb Cake warm for an extra comforting experience.
