We all know that Autumn screams Pumpkins, hoodies and cooler temps. We also know that once fall hits everyone starts eating all things pumpkin. Pumpkin pies, pumpkin tarts, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins and on and on. I wanted to try this pumpkin crumb cake because I thought it sounded a bit different from all of the usual pumpkin treats! Well since it comes from Shelly at Cookies and Cups I knew it would be outrageous and it was. Be sure to check out her cookbook here, it is one of my faves!
This cake is great for breakfast, brunch or afternoon tea. I served it for dessert and added some vanilla ice cream! Great combo!
