Cinnamon Streusel Pumpkin Cake

Pumpkin Cake

Fall is one of the best times of the year, because pumpkin is in season! And while there are many great uses of pumpkin– pies, cookies, soups, breads– pumpkin cake is one of my favorites.

One of the only ways to make a pumpkin cake better, however, is to put a cinnamon streusel topping on it! You’ll love our Cinnamon Streusel Pumpkin Cake. It’s sure to become a family favorite. The cake has a wonderful pumpkin taste, with hints of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. It’s a taste bud full of special fall flavors!


Streusel originated in Germany– it’s a combination of flour, butter, and sugar that’s used on top of pies, cakes, or tarts. The most common use of streusel in America is coffee cake, which I suppose this recipe technically is! It does remind me of a pumpkin coffee cake with the streusel on top. And I love that, because that means you can have this cake for breakfast and not feel bad. Plus, pumpkin is a vegetable, so it’s totally healthy, right? Right?

We use Chef Shamy Cinnamon Brown Sugar Honey Butter to make this streusel, and it’s the way to go. Chef Shamy Cinnamon Butter is the perfect thing to spruce up any fall recipe. The cinnamon is absolutely beautiful, and the brown sugar and honey balance perfectly to find a honey butter that’s sweet but isn’t too sweet!
