Sour Cream Pumpkin Cake Recipe

Sour Cream Pumpkin Cake Recipe

The nicely spiced streusel in the center of this cake is a marvelous surprise and complement to the cinnamony pumpkin cake. It's delicious for breakfast or dessert.—Elaine Holmberg, Norfolk, Nebraska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons cold butter
  • BATTER:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar

  • GLAZE:

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and allspice. Cut in butter until crumbly; set aside.
