Megans Cookin: Super Simple Pumpkin Coffeecake

Saturday, November 3, 2007

Super Simple Pumpkin Coffeecake


I wish I could tell you that I made this up on my own, but...
My inspiration actually came from fellow blogger Karen from There's A Veggie in my Cake.
She made a version using sweet potato puree and flax seed. I didn't have either of those but I did have a can of pumpkin!

It all starts with a Krusteaz Crumb Cake mix!. The mix calls for one egg and water. I added my pumpkin to the wet ingredients. Then I added the wet ingred. to the cake mix.
Pour 1/2 the batter in a 8" sprayed pan. Layer 1/2 of the crumb topping on top. Another layer of cake batter. Top with remaining topping. Cut through batter to swirl with a butter knife.
Bake 350 for 40-45 minutes.

Best with a cup of coffee on a cold lazy morning! But quite simple if you need a "home baked" treat for when the family stops by, or the bake sale, or the brunch, or anytime!

I love this recipe! I don't know why some people turn their noses up at boxed mixes. I think that they can can be the foundation for some great creations - like this one. Thanks.
