This recipe is from my friend Brooke. I am so glad it is fall. I have wanted to make this recipe for a long time. The cake is amazing and the streusel on top takes it to another level of excellence. The cake looks funny because part of the bottom stuck to the pan, and I didn’t turn it over to show the streusel. It is an upside down pumpkin pound cake. Haha. 🙂 This is a fantastic cake, give it a try!
(If you would like to make this gluten free, use an all purpose gluten free baking flour. Substitute the same amount of gluten free flour for the flour in the recipe)
Brooke, thanks for the recipe, it is fantastic!
