Crumb cakes are delicious and I have made classic New York crumb cakes and Chocolate Strawberry crumb cakes. When I found a can of pumpkin in the pantry I really didn’t start out to make a crumb cake. In fact I almost made a pumpkin pie! I suspect I bought two cans at Thanksgiving and only used one of them. So in deciding what to do with this errant can I started looking through my cookbooks and I combined a couple of different ideas to come up with this pumpkin cake recipe.

How Was the Pumpkin Spice Crumb Cake Recipe?

It was downright delicious. The pumpkin made the cake really moist and the spices – well, these spices are my favorites. They gave the cake a little bit of heat and it was delightful with the sweet crumbs. I will want to keep pumpkin in my pantry all year round so I can make this any time the mood might strike.
