Pumpkin Puree

It can be so easy to confuse pumpkin puree with pumpkin pie filling For pumpkin crumb cake, we want to be in control of the sweeteners and spices, which is why we call for regular pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.

Homemade Glaze Topping

While the glaze for this recipe is totally optional, it’s so easy to make (just two ingredients!) that we highly recommend you don’t skip it. Not to mention, it makes your pumpkin crumb cake look gorgeous!

Can I Make Pumpkin Crumb Cake Dairy Free?

You absolutely can! You will simply need to substitute the butter and sour cream with your favorite plant based alternatives. Make sure to substitute the butter with plant based butter sticks. Any sort of margarine or tub-based butter alternatives are not intended for baking.

Pumpkin Pie Spice

There’s nothing better than homemade pumpkin pie spice. While you can always use store-bought, we highly recommend you try our homemade version!

Storage Instructions

Store your pumpkin crumb cake in an airtight container on the counter for up to 5 days, if you can make it last that long!
