Description

Light and fluffy coffee cake made the decadent way with a cream-and-butter brown sugar glaze. Feel free to thank me for the sugar coma later.

Ingredients

  • ⅓ cups Water
  • 1 can Pureed Pumpkin (15 Oz)
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 box Yellow Cake Mix (18 Ounce Box)
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar, Divided
  • ½ cups Flour
  • ⅓ cups Walnuts, Chopped
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • ¼ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ cups Heavy Whipping Cream

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350F.

In a large bowl mix together the water, pumpkin, eggs, 1 Tablespoon of vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice until well combined. Add the cake mix and baking soda and mix until just combined.

Grease a 9×13 pan with butter and pour batter into pan.

In a small bowl mix together 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, walnuts, and melted butter. Use fingers to sprinkle over the top of the cake. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

For the glaze, combine the other 1/2 cup brown sugar, granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and heavy cream in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir until all sugar is dissolved.

When cake is finished baking, poke holes in the top with a toothpick. Pour glaze over the cake, making sure to cover all surfaces. Serve cake warm or at room temperature.

Of course, the cake is served with Whipped Cream?
Right?

Easy peasy with the cake mix – I like that.

I absolutely love this recipe, have been making it since 2011. I’ve made it twice already this fall, though I do leave out the walnuts. Awesome.

I am a beginner cook that makes oodles of mistakes, but even I managed to make this cake flawlessly on the first try. It is light, moist, and unbelievably delicious! My husband and I and our company loved it – I will definitely be making this again!

This cake is amazing! The entire family gobbled it up right after it came out of the oven. It’s so moist and yummy!
One note is that I realized my cake mix was only 15oz after I started making this and it turned out beautifully!
