SRC - Pumpkin Crumb Cake

Time for another Secret Recipe Club reveal.  This month I was assigned the blog Flavors by Four  which is a mother and daughter blogging team.  

I always go straight to the dessert recipes whenever I get my assigned blog and this blog did not disappoint, so many great looking cakes and desserts.  I ended up choosing the Pumpkin Crumb Cake even though it isn't officially Autumn for another fortnight or so.  I just cannot wait for cooler temps and the scents and flavours of autumn, so this cake was just perfect to kick start Autumn, even if it was a little early!


Cake:
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 stick unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 large eggs
12 oz canned pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup milk

Crumb topping:
3/4 cup oats
3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 stick unsalted butter, cold and cubed


Preheat oven to 350.  Grease a 9x9 cake pan and set aside.

To make the crumb topping, place the oats, flour, sugar and cinnamon into a large bowl and cut in the cold cubed butter until crumbly.  Set aside.

To make the cake, in a medium bowl mix together the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, baking powder and salt. 

In the bowl of an electric mixer add the butter and sugar and beat until combined.  Add the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla and canned pumpkin.  Add in the dry ingredients, followed by the milk and mix until combined.   

Pour into baking pan, top with the crumb topping and bake for 50 minutes, or until cooked through.
