1 9x13-inch cake


  • nonstick cooking spray


  • ¾ cup brown sugar

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes


  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree (such as Libby's®)

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ cup coarsely chopped pecans


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray and set aside.

  2. Combine brown sugar, flour, and pumpkin pie spice in a medium bowl. Add butter cubes, and use a fork or pastry blender to mix ingredients together until it resembles coarse crumbs.

  3. Combine cake mix and butter in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until well combined. Add eggs, one at at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add pumpkin puree and cinnamon to the bowl, and mix until well blended, about 3 minutes. Stir in pecans.

  4. Pour batter into the prepared pan, spreading evenly. Sprinkle streusel topping over the batter.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Allow the cake to cool for about 5 minutes before serving.
