Week 41 of Reddit’s 52 Weeks of Baking Challenge is pumpkin. I made a fall favorite from Veganomicon. It’s pumpkin crumb cake with cashew streusel and I love it very much. I made this last fall as well and I’ve been craving it ever since. I’m so glad it’s pumpkin season again!
A kind Internet person has typed out the recipe for you here but I really do encourage everyone to buy the cookbook because there’s a lot more greatness where this came from. The original calls for chopped pecans but I switched it to cashews because I’m not allergic to those. I used a smaller loaf pan than recommended so I got five muffins out of this recipe as well but had to bake a little longer.
First step is making the cashew (or pecan) streusel.
Step two is get all of the cake ingredients out and ready.
I mixed the wet ingredients by hand.
Then carefully mixed in the dry ingredients and poured most of the batter into the loaf pan.
And finally I spread an even layer of cashew streusel on top and baked at 350 for about 50 minutes.
Here’s a closeup of the star of the post: the sweet, nutty, streuselly goodness.
This is a five star recipe in my opinion. Several of our friends have tried it and really love it. It might be my favorite recipe from 52 Weeks of Baking.
