2bleu's Pumpkin Ginger Crumble

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 45 mins

Why wait til the holidays? Indulge! Serve warm with ice cream or chilled with whipped cream. This is a little something Bird created. :) NOTE: We love Sam's idea of a cream cheese layer in there also, Suggest 8 oz cream cheese whipped with 2 tbsp sugar, and put on before the pumpkin layer. :)

Although I usually like to try new recipes as given, this time I took the tips from Sam AND Bird & included a layer of cream cheese! I also toasted the pecans ~ What can I say but that I like my nuts toasted! We really enjoyed the flavor combo of the ginber, pumpkin & cream cheese! Not the healthiest thing in the world to eat, but definitely one of the most enjoyable! Thanks for a really great keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe tag]

Mmmmm... very interesting! I used regular cooked pumpkin like we discussed rather than canned. The filling was a little watery for my liking, probably due to that. Next time I'll try using a little less pumpkin or condensed milk. The pumpkin flavour in this cake was great though! I'm now dreaming of it with a cream cheese addition to the filling.
