  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • Streusel Topping:
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 scant teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans


Grease and flour a 13x9-inch baking pan. Heat oven to 350°.

In a bowl, combine the 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup brown sugar and granulated sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, pumpkin, vanilla, and oil until well blended, scraping the bowl a few times. Stir in the dry ingredients until blended. Spread in prepared baking pan.

In another bowl, combine the 3/4 cup flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until crumbly; mix in the pecans with your fingers. Sprinkle evenly over the pumpkin batter. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until set. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean. Cool in pan on a rack. Cut in squares to serve.

About Pumpkin Puree, Member mommasal

I really did not make this yet. It took me a while to find the definition of pumpkin puree. You really mean pure pumpkin or solid pack pumpkin. Pumpkin puree has all the spices, etc in it. Please watch and use the correct word. It did confuse me. I will make this recipe, it sounds great.
