EASY PUMPKIN STREUSEL CAKE

Who doesn’t love a cake that is acceptable to eat morning or night?

I love a good cake that is right in between a little morning snack with coffee and a full-blown dessert with vanilla ice cream.

This recipe is sooo easy. You literally mix together three bowls and just combine it all.

My mom had gone out and bought some fall-inspired decor and food items. One of them being this pumpkin cheesecake syrup. I saw it and was like ooooh I gotta do something with this.

Initially, I thought I would go simple and just make a little chai latte with it. After thinking about it more I realized my favorite chai mix comes in a pumpkin spice flavor so it sorta defeats the purpose. So instead here we are!

I always keep a boxed cake mix on hand in case of dessert emergencies.

First things first you want to preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Then you want to mix together the three mixtures you will be using.

Combine all the ingredients from the box and add a tablespoon of the syrup.

Set that aside.

In another bowl combine the pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, egg, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract.

Set that aside.

In another bowl using a fork or a dough kneading tool, combine the butter, sugar, and flour.

Set that aside as well.

You are just about ready to get those three mixtures combined.

Get the pan you will be using and lay some parchment paper inside. Spray with nonstick and you are ready to pour.

Tip: You might need to trim up your edges so the filling spread evenly, depending on the pan.

So basically you want to pour all the yellow cake batter in. Then pour the pumpkin mixture over that. When you pour you want to make it so there are basically gaps between pumpkin.

I hope that makes sense. So it should be lines of yellow, then pumpkin, then yellow, then pumpkin and so on.

Next, get a toothpick or a fork to swirl the pumpkin into a fun pattern. I was pretty tempted to leave it like this cause, stunning.

I ended up still deciding to throw the streusel on top for that extra sweetness and crunch.

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean and the top has browned.

Let it cool and then cut into slices and enjoy! You can cut them as small or as large as you like.

They are super yummy and perfect to have at the end of the night or the beginning of the day with some coffee.

I hope you guys are loving some of these fall-inspired recipes and try them out! If you missed my past ones check them out here.
