Howdy Kitchen: Pumpkin Coffee Cake

{Recipe found at Tasty Kitchen, from Heather's Dish}

Yup.  This stuff is as good as it sounds!

And it is as good as it looks, too!

I followed this recipe pretty accurately....until it came to the topping.

Here's the recipe....with my little change.

Ingredients for Batter

  • 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

    Ingredients for Topping

  • ½ cup Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup Flour
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • ¼ cup butterscotch chips
  • ¼ cup toffee or bits of brickle

    Ingredients for Glaze

  • ¼ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ cups Heavy Whipping Cream

Preparation Instructions

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,
butterscotch chips, toffee/bits of brickle, 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 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.

I actually made 2 of these tonight.  1 for the weekend, and 1 to take to and share at work.

Enjoy!  And happy baking.

Hmmm now why didn't I read this yesterday when I was stumbling in the kitchen trying to make something to take to my step-daughter's school luncheon today. I managed though... yellow cake mix, can of pumpkin & a smidge of water & some spices. mix together and bake. Then top off with powdered sugar, a dab of milk & some pumpkin pie spices. And the tada... butterscotch chips on top :)
