Pumpkin Crunch Snacking Cake dusted with powdered sugar and a pile of pecans in the center on a cake stand.Pumpkin Crunch Snacking Cake is so easy to make and perfect alternative to Pumpkin Pie or an easy mid-day snack. 

It's a super simple Pumpkin Cake recipe that makes a perfect addition to the holiday dessert table. It's whipped together in under 10 minutes and takes about 30 minutes to bake making it great for a busy weeknight dessert. 

The pumpkin crumb is moist and tender with a nice hint of cinnamon and vanilla.

We like to lightly dust it with powdered sugar but it would also be delicious with cream cheese frosting.

Here's how to make this delicious easy Pumpkin Crunch Cake recipe:


A large mixing bowl with sour cream, pumpkin puree, melted butter, beaten egg, and vanilla extract.

Preheat oven to 375°. Grease a 9"x 9" baking pan and set aside.

  • 1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour (Make sure to fluff flour before measuring)
  • 3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder 
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mixed until just combined but no dry spots left being careful not to over mix. 

Pumpkin Cake batter with pecans on top.

Pumpkin Cake batter in a round 9" cake pan.
