Servings 8



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 cup E.D.SMITH® pure pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk


  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cold


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tsp. milk


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F and line an 8” round cake pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and ground ginger.
  • In another separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree with the honey, melted butter and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl of dry ingredients and lightly stir. Add in the milk and stir everything together until just combined. Pour the contents of the batter into the prepared pan.
  • In a small bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon for the topping. Use a pastry cutter to cut in the cold butter until the topping has the texture of pea-sized crumbs. Shake the topping over the top of the cake pan to cover it completely.
  • Bake the cake in the oven for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Remove the pan from the oven and allow it to cool while you prepare the glaze.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the powdered sugar and milk. Once the cake has cooled for 15 minutes, grab the edges of the parchment paper and pull the cake out of the pan, placing it on a wire rack or a serving platter. Drizzle the glaze over the warm cake, cut and serve!


  • Don’t add the glaze while the cake is piping hot, or it will melt into the cake. Be sure to wait 15-20 minutes.
  • You can also bake the cake in an 8 x 8 cake pan instead of a round cake pan.
