Crumb topping:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • small pinch salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


Crumb Topping

  • Start by preparing the crumb topping. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, dark brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. (Break up the brown sugar if it's clumpy) Pour in the melted butter and mix with a fork until completely moistened and crumbly. Refrigerate until ready to use.


  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9-inch springform pan with nonstick spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda,  cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt.
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer or with a hand-held mixer, cream together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, and mix until incorporated. Mix in the pumpkin puree, sour cream, and vanilla. With the mixer on low speed slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread out evenly. Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the batter. 
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.  Cool on a wire rack.
