Apple Pumpkin Crumb Cake



I made this cake over the weekend for my groom! The pumpkin puree with the addition of shredded apple makes this cake incredibly moist, and who doesn’t love a crumb topping? 

For the cake:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¾ cup granualted sugar
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup apple, grated (about 1 large apple)

For the topping:

  • ¾ cup flour
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350º, grease an 8″x8″ pan. In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk sugar, vegetable oil, milk, egg, and pumpkin puree together. Stir in flour mixture, then fold in grated apple. Pour into pan, and smooth out with a spatula.

3. In a separate bowl, add the ingredients for the crumb topping. Use a fork to work the butter into the flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the batter. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes – test with a toothpick. Let cool on a baking rack. Serves 12.

    I know, pumpkin and apple seems like an odd combo – but it was actually pretty good.
