Pumpkin Crumb Cake

I know, I know, I can’t believe fall is here! But I am loving all of the apple and pumpkin recipes that I am seeing. I am crazy about crumb cake! This is for all of my pumpkin fans…I am one of those! Pumpkin pies, pumpkin bars, pumpkin cookies, yeah, I love them all!

How many crumb cake recipes can you possibly have? Well look no further, this is the best pumpkin crumb cake recipe you will ever taste! Moist and delicious, perfect fall comfort food!

The cake portion of the recipe is a very simple one, but the topping is special. With a unique topping that you break apart into pieces before baking, it is worth the effort.

This is THE crumb cake you will want to make for brunch or treats you bring into the office. I made this cake just for myself and froze the remaining 8 pieces so I could enjoy them with my morning coffee. If wrapped individually well with saran wrap then placed in a Ziploc bag with the air pushed out, this cake is delicious even if defrosted.



This cake is perfect for a crowd or just when you want something pumpkin for dessert or a snack.  So, how could you not be needing this in your life right now? Okay, maybe you can wait until the weekend, but make it soon. It’s amazing! And Happy Fall, enjoy this fun time of year!

Just look at how moist and tender this cake is, with just the right amount of crumb. The pumpkin gives it a special fall flavor! You get an incredibly soft and tender pumpkin cake which is enhanced with the perfect amount of spices, then atop that is a delicious, buttery crumble (which you might find yourself stealing off your kid’s pieces when they aren’t looking. Don’t tell them I did that)

How would I make this into muffins and how long would I bake them for? TIA


Wednesday 19th of October 2022

How long do you bake them as cupcakes and how full do you fill the cupcake pan? Thanks in advance. So excited to make this. Thanks for sharing

I haven't made them as cupcakes before, but they should be great. Fill up 3/4 of the pan, bake for about 20 minutes, and check with a toothpick for doneness.
