What a way to welcome Fall! Better than Entenmann's (& we grew uo with Entenmann's!) Got up early today & made for DH & our houseguest - Wonderful texture! Creamed the butter & sugar for a couple of minutes & then added the eggs one at a time beating well. Sifted the dry ingredients & added 1/3 at a time, alternating with the sour cream - used 1 1/2 cups sour cream. Reduced sugar in pumpkin mix & topping (used 1/2 cup in pumpkin & 1/2 cup in topping) - this is simply outstanding. Perfect cakey texture with the smooth pumpkin & crunchy top contrast - 4 people ate over 1/2 in one brunch (lottsa calories to work off today!). Thank you Carol for a real keeper - easy enough to make in the am (I am not a good am person) & turns out fancy enough for guests!

This recipe is almost like one of my favorite recipes I've been using for years from the "Best of the Best from Virginia" cookbook. The differences are: in the pumpkin layer: use 16 oz (2 c) of pumpkin, only 1/3 c sugar, only 1 egg, and no liquid added. The streusel layer calls for brown sugar instead of white. Also, 1/2 of the streusel is sprinkled over the first layer of batter (before the pumpkin layer is added. For easy speading of the 2nd layer, I place the batter in evenly spaced dollops, then spread with back of spoon. Worked well for me. Funny thing is: years ago someone brought a pumpkin coffee cake to work that I loved...only it was made with a yeast dough. No one knew who brought it in. I probably spent a year searching for a recipe similar to it and came across the one in the Best of..VA cookbook (which I truly love, but it's not the one I tasted from work). Today I began searching again for the yeast-dough-based pumpkin coffee cake.

This is outstanding. I took it to work to share and everyone loved it. I used brown sugar in the topping.
