Benah's Pumpkin Crumb Cake

I feel kind of like I'm cheating posting this because I've posted it before, but it was a long time ago (I was pregnant with Boy #2 who recently turned three) and there aren't any pictures on the post. This cake is amazing and definitely worth of being posted again with pictures, so here it is. I have yet to meet someone that doesn't like this cake. I was never a pumpkin fan, but this cake made me see the light. Hallelujah!! My dear friend Benah shared the recipe with me years ago, like before the thought of Boy #1 ever crossed my mind. I recently needed something to take a a birthday brunch for my MOMS Club and thought of this cake. then it turned out I needed something the next night for a snack for my bible study group, so I made it again. Yes, I made it two days in a row. It's that good. My kids were disappointed on the third day when I didn't make another one. Sorry, kiddos, we can't have cake every day. I know, I'm such a mean mom.

Benah's Pumpkin Crumb Cake

1 pkg (18 oz) yellow cake mix (take out one cup for topping)
1 egg
1 stick butter, melted

1 lb can pumpkin
3 eggs
½ c granulated sugar
¼ c brown sugar
1 ½ tsp cinnamon (or 1/2 tsp each of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger)

1 cup cake mix
½ c granulated sugar
½ c chopped nuts (optional)
3 tbsp butter

Preheat oven to 350. Mix crust ingredients; pat into greased 9x13 pan.

Beat filling ingredients; pour over crust.

Combine topping and crumble over filling.

Bake for 45-55 min. Watch it be devoured.


I love this cake. I have pumpkin in my pantry right now but alas no cake mix. It's probably for the best since I'm the only one home for most of the day, I'd just end up eating the whole pan of it. Not that I'd mind, but I probably would regret it tomorrow when none of my pants fit.
