Tis the Season...

... for baking and yummy smells of Fall. Manfriend benefited from a spontaneous urge to be "Autumny"... I baked a Trader Joe's Pumpkin bread, we enjoyed Topsfield fair Kettle corn, he warmed up some apple cider and to top the gluttony off, apple cinnamon donuts were dipped in said hot cider. Gluttons for Fall, that's what we are... but mmmm did it taste good.

My next project will surely be our family's Pumpkin Crumb Cake, the recipe which I am sure came from a magazine or something yeeeeeears ago but we love it just the same. It's pretty easy and oh so yummy. I copied and pasted (see below) exactly how my mother sends this recipe around. Try it if you dare... to be delicious!

Pumpkin Crumb Cake

1 box of yellow cake mix (can be extra moist)
1 can of pumpkin
Brown sugar
Cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
Bisquick or jiffy mix

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Follow the directions on the yellow cake mix. Add the can of pumpkin and beat together. Add ¼ cup of jiffy mix and beat til creamy.

Put the mixture in your pan of choice.

Crumb topping:

1 softened stick of butter
1cup of brown sugar
1 and 1/2 cups of bisquick

Mix all these ingredients together with a whisk or your fingers (clean fingers, remember hand hygiene). Spread over your cake mix and bake.

Make sure the cake is finished cooking in the middle because it bubbles up and can fool you.
