Pumpkin Streusel Cake

My mom's birthday is tomorrow.  Unfortunately she lives in Florida so I won't be able to see her on her birthday but luckily we have a girls weekend planned for next week in Charleston, South Carolina so I will be giving her a big birthday hug then.  I found the cake recipe at  Everyone loved it.     

3-1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp ground nutmeg
2-1/2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 cup canola oil
1 15 oz can pumpkin
1/2 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract

6 tbsp butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1-2 tbsp milk

Prepare streusel topping for cake.  Combine butter, brown sugar, oatmeal, flour, salt and cinnamon in a bowl.  With a fork mash the butter into the mixture until just butter mixture is crumbly.

Spray bundt pan with PAM.  Pour streusel topping into cake pan.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl and set aside.  Whisk together the sugar, eggs and oil in a separate bowl until well blended.  Stir in pumpkin, water and vanilla and mix well.

Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and stir until all the ingredients are moist.  Do not overmix.

Pour the batter evenly into prepared pan that already has streusel topping in the bottom of it.  Bake about an hour until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Let rest for 10-15 minutes before removing from the pan.  Place any streusel remaining the in the pan onto the top of the cake.

Prepare glaze when cake has cooled.  Mix confectioners sugar and milk until you reach desired consistency for drizzling over the cake.

Enjoy!!  Susan
