EASY Pumpkin Crumb Cake Recipe
- 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.
