This Pumpkin Crumb Cake is deliciously moist and sweet with a perfect crunchy topping. Perfect to share with friends with a good cup of coffee.
The craze for pumpkin continues. There are high hopes in my head for all kinds of baking projects this fall, and it is fall my friends, at least where I live. I woke up this morning and came down to make my coffee to have with a piece of this marvellous cake, I look out the window and what do I see? Frost on all the rooftops! Yeah, fall is here. There was even talk about snow the other night, but I don’t think that happened. However, snow here in Calgary is inevitable just like it’s inevitable eating another piece of this cake. But I’m just saying.
The thing that kills me about baking is the smell. I love the smell of anything baking in the oven. Saying I love the smell of baking is really an understatement. And this cake will smell all kinds of delicious while baking, thus driving me crazy and turning me into a moody baby until I have a piece of that cake in my mouth and belly.
The torture, my friends, comes when I have to control myself until I take pictures or I shoot the video or whatever needs to happen for the blog before I can inhale the cake. You know, I always tell you to let the cake cool completely before digging in, but trust me when I tell you that I NEVER let the cake cool completely, I’m lucky if I let the cake cool for 2 minutes before digging in.
This cake here really is my kind of cake to enjoy with a good cup of coffee. It’s sweet and moist on the inside with a crunchy topping with pecans and oats. Did I tell you I bought a Keurig a couple weeks ago and ever since then I drink coffee like crazy. I can have coffee in 30 seconds! And you know what this means? More cake!! You can’t have coffee on its own, that’s sacrilegious!
Oh yeah, I did make a video for you, because it’s pumpkin crumb cake and I love you!
