Ingredients

Pumpkin Cake:

  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk or milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Cream Cheese Layer:

  • 8 oz. softened cream cheese
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar

Streusel Topping:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 6 Tbsp. cold butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease or line a 9X9 or 8X8 pan with parchment.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and salt.

  3. In a separate bowl whisk together pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, egg and vanilla.

  4. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir just until combined. Pour into prepared pan.

  5. Cream Cheese Layer: Combine cream cheese, vanilla and sugar. I heated my cream cheese in the microwave to be able to more easily combine the ingredients. Drop dollops all over the cake batter and do your best to use a spoon or offset spatula to spread out the dollops into a layer over the entire cake.

  6. Streusel: Use a pastry blender or fork to combine all streusel ingredients. Crumble over cream cheese layer.

  7. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the cake batter is cooked through. Let cool and serve!
