Sugared Pecan Ingredients

  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup pecans roughly chopped

Streusel Ingredients

  • cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup butter softened
  • ¾ cup roughly chopped pecans

Cake Ingredients

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 15 ounces pumpkin puree, (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 4 eggs room temperature
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Optional Glaze Ingredients

  • cups powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk


  • In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar, cinnamon, and pecans. Set aside. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Add the softened butter and gently mix until crumbly. Gently, stir in the pecans. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan. In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin until well combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and gently stir until well combined.
  • Pour half of the batter into the 9x13 inch pan. Sprinkle on the cinnamon sugar layer and then gently spread the remaining batter over the pecans. Sprinkle the streusel mixture on top.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool at least most of the way before serving. It is good a bit warm. Will keep several days on the counter.

Optional Glaze Instructions

  • Stir together the powdered sugar and vanilla extract with just enough milk to form a smooth consistency. Drizzle on cooled cake.
