Happy October! Now that’s officially pumpkin month, I had to share a pumpkin recipe – one that’s loaded with spices and warmth and goodness and pecans and LOTS of crumbles. This pumpkin crumb cake does just that ^^.

Also, when I first made this, I called it a coffee cake. Then I thought, well that has a whole lot of crumbs…maybe it’s a crumb cake.

Classes start to get into full swing. The air gets a crisp, chilly edge to it between the sunny days, and the leaves just start to change color around the edges. Then, of course, fall baking starts, and the smells of pumpkin bread, cinnamon, and apple-y desserts dominate the kitchen. It’s a great time, especially for baking. [Read more...]
