Pumpkin Streusel Snack Cake

Pumpkin Streusel Snack Cake | Homan at Home

I’m back making snack cakes again. Someone stop me – they’re so addicting! This one might be my favorite so far (I don’t know, applesauce is pretty darn amazing…)

The thing that sets this one apart is not the lovely and moist pumpkin base, but that gorgeous buttery streusel on top. I’ve been on a streusel kick lately, so don’t be surprised if I just streusel all the things for the next little bit. You’re welcome.

And this streusel is the best. The secret is to melt the butter before mixing it in. Most recipes I see have you cut in cold butter, but if you use melted butter, the streusel makes those glorious crumbs. And that is most definitely what we want to see!

I did top this with some vanilla glaze for the pictures, but in real life, I probably would leave it off. The cake and topping are sweet enough, the glaze felt a little like overkill – although if you’ve got a crazy sweet tooth, go for it! It’s a standard vanilla glaze – 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 Tbsp water or milk. 

Oh, the other thing is that this cake is made from my snack cake mix. I LOVE this stuff. One recipe of the mix makes 6 mixes, which is oh-so-dangerous! With the addition of a few pantry essentials, you can make a bunch of different flavored cakes in literally minutes. So far, I’ve made double chocolate, lemon, applesauce, and now this pumpkin. Is there a flavor you’d like to see? Leave a comment below and let me know!
