Ingredients

Streusel Topping:

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • pinch of salt

Coffee Cake Batter:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare a 9" x 13" baking dish with cooking spray or butter and set aside.
  • To make the streusel, mix together all streusel ingredients in a medium sized bowl with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  • To make the cake batter, in a large mixing bowl beat together the butter and brown sugar until well combined. Beat in eggs one at a time, then mix in pumpkin puree and sour cream.
  • Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin spice into wet ingredient mixture. Stir together until fully combined, the batter will be quite thick.
  • Spread 1/2 of the batter into the baking dish. Sprinkle 1/3 of the streusel topping evenly over top. Then dollop the remaining batter around the dish and spread as best as you can. Top with remaining streusel.
  • Bake for 50-55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.
