I am currently obsessed with anything pumpkin. Pumpkin Spiced Coffee, pumpkin beer, Little Debbie Pumpkin Delights, I'll try anything. It is like Fall comes along and I think I must consume all things pumpkin. Last night, I tried my hand at a pumpkin coffee cake. And it turned out delicious. (If I do say so myself). It was also relatively easy to make. I adapted this from several other recipies.
1 box yellow cake mix
1 can pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon all spice
1 tablespoon vanilla
I made the cake mix according to the directions and then added the pumpkin, spice and vanilla. I then baked at 350 for 20 minutes. This way the cake is firm enough to hold the crumbs.
3/4 stick softened butter
1 1/4 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
splash of vanilla
cinnamon (until well speckled.)
I used my hands to mix all together and squish until crumbly. Depending on how soft the butter is, you may have to add more or less flour.
I took the cake out, added the crumb and baked an additional 20 minutes. The cake is very moist, so it took a bit longer than the box calls for.
Before I served the cake, I sprinkled with confectioner's sugar. I would have taken a picture, but it is all gone :)
