For the Streusel Crumb Topping:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 tsps ground cinnamon

For the Pumpkin Cake:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsps ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • cups brown sugar packed
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tsps pure vanilla extract Watkins Baking Vanilla is my favorite
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 15-oz can pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)

For the Glaze Drizzle:

  • 3 Tbsps milk, cream, or half and half
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. 
  • Spray the bottom and sides of a 9"x13" cake pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Make the Streusal Crumb Topping:

  • In a medium-sized, microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Add the flour, sugars & cinnamon and mix until the consistency feels like wet sand.  

Make the Pumpkin Cake:

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a separate medium bowl, beat together the pumpkin, oil, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla and, sour cream until smooth.
  • Gently pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients, mixing with a large rubber spatula until just combined.
  • Pour the cake batter into your prepared baking pan, and smooth until level.
  • Spread the streusal crumb topping over the batter until evenly covered.
  • Place cake in the preheated oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until there are no jiggles in middle of the cake, and a toothpick comes out clean. 

Make the Drizzle Glaze:

  • In a small bow,l whisk together the milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and powdered sugar until smooth. Add extra milk a few drops at a time if needed to get a consistency for drizzling.  
  • Allow cake to cook to room temp before drizzling over the entire top.


Store cake in an air-tight container in the fridge for 4-5 days.
