Super Moist Box Mix Pumpkin Spice Crumb Cake

I don’t know if I have ever mentioned this on here before but I hate the word moist! I know that I am not alone in this dislike of the word but I tried to find another word to describe this cake and the other options were even worse. Damp, dank, oozy, soggy… You get the idea here not a one of them was a good word choice for a cake. They were all wrong, wrong, wrong and so here we are now, stuck with the word moist to describe this Moist Box Mix Pumpkin Spice Crumb Cake. Okay, now that we have examined one of my neuroses let’s move on shall we?

We are huge fans of coffee and crumb cakes in our house. In fact, it is one of the few breakfast items my 10-year-old son will eat with his sensory issues. Because of this, I always try to have crumb cake on hand just for him. Don’t worry I am not sending him out into the cruel world with just that in his belly. He usually also has some fruit to go with it. Sadly, I can’t get him to eat eggs, bacon, sausage or pretty much any other breakfast items. So like I said, crumb cake it is for us on hand at all times. To change it up a bit and make it more seasonal I decided to make this Pumpkin Spice Crumb Cake and I am so glad that I did. This is a perfect weekend treat to share with family and friends.

This cake is so easy to make as it mixes up in just minutes since the base for it is a box mix. It’s just a matter of blending the cake batter and the crumb topping and spreading it all out in the pan. The pumpkin helps keep the cake super moist (Ugh, there’s that word again!) and skipping the oil altogether is a plus in my opinion and a way to cut out some calories.
