Cinnamon Streusel Pumpkin Cake

Cinnamon, pumpkin, and maple syrup all combined into one amazing cake! What more could you want, right??

Last weekend, my hubby whipped this up for us and it was a hit! It was the perfect Fall treat and we really enjoyed it! The cake was moist, fluffy, packed with flavor, and the topping was the perfect amount of sweetness!

We enjoyed this as a breakfast treat, but it would also be great for having company over, evening dessert, etc.

With Fall here, definitely try this cake! You’ll be glad you did!!
