Pumpkin Crumb Cake - from Scratch

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 45 mins

I found this online, but can't remember which site. I plan to make it for Thanksgiving as I will have 2 guests who don't like pumpkin pie. If you don't have self-rising flour you can make it yourself: For each cup of all-purpose flour, add 1 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.I also think some crushed pecans or walnuts in the crumb topping would be good.

Creamy inside. Nice crunch on top and tastes good. I added a little more spices.

I like the idea of your recipe and will give it a try today. However, for those of us who live in higher elevations, self-rising flour does not work. We have to decrease baking powder for best results. Also, self-rising flour does not keep well. I will also add cloves and nutmeg -- these are two ingredients that I consider a must for pumpkin.
