“Piece of Cake” Pumpkin Streusel Cake
2 packages spice cake mix
2 15-oz cans of pumpkin
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease three 6-inch round baking pans and line with parchment paper.
Sift the cake mix into a large bowl
Mix together the spice cake mix and canned pumpkin until well blended. Spread evenly into the prepared pans. Top the cake batter in one of the cake rounds with streusel topping. (recipe below)
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. The one with streusel topping may take longer.
Remove the three cakes from the pans. Spread cream cheese frosting (recipe below) to the top of the first layer, adding extra near the edge. Using an off-set spatula spread a thin layer around the outside. Spread cream cheese frosting on top of second layer, adding extra frosting near the edge. Crown with the streusel topped layer then careful spread thin layer of frosting to the outside, being careful not to get frosting on the streusel top.
