Pumpkin Coffee Cake

I discovered this recipe on Pinterest and just had to try.
 It is from the Six Sisters Stuff web site, a great resource, full of wonderful recipes and craft ideas.  This is a quick and easy recipe and so YUMMY!  Everyone loved it.  Although, I made one addition--I added chopped pecans to the brown sugar topping.

1/3 cup water
1 (15 ounce) can pureed pumpkin
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 (18 ounce) box yellow cake mix
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup all purpose flour
4 tablespoons butter, melted
¼ cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. In a large bowl, mix water, pumpkin, eggs, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice. 
  3. Mix in dry cake mix and baking soda and mix until combined. 
  4. Pour batter into a greased 9x13 baking pan. 
  5. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour, melted butter and chopped pecans. Sprinkle over the top of the cake. 
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.  Cool and serve.



  1. Yummy! I have made this recipe, and it is great. Pecans are my favorite nut. They would be the perfect addition. I will remember to add them next time.

  2. Oh yeah! This will be breakfast when I have family over for Thanksgiving. With the pecans, of course! Thank you for sharing with See Ya In the Gumbo!

  3. This looks like the perfect Fall recipe. Thanks for sharing on Tout It Tuesday! Hope to see you tomorrow.
