Ingredients:

For the Cinnamon Oat Crumb Topping:

  • 6 tablespoons of butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

For the Pumpkin Cake:

  • 1 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter (1 stick)
  • 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup of applesauce

For the Creamy Cheese Filling:

  • 12 ounces of cream cheese (1 1/2 boxes)
  • 1/3 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and generously coat a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with non-stick baking spray.
  2. Let’s start by preparing the delectable Cinnamon Oat Crumb Topping. In a medium-sized bowl, combine 6 tablespoons of slightly softened butter, 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, rolled oats, and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Use a pastry knife to cut in the butter until the mixture becomes crumbly. Set this crumbly topping aside for later.
  3. In another medium bowl, whisk together 1 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice. These aromatic spices will infuse your cake with warmth and flavor.
  4. Now, let’s create the luscious Pumpkin Cake. In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together 1/2 cup of unsalted butter and 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar until they form a creamy, dreamy blend. Set the mixer to ‘stir’ and add the three eggs one at a time, ensuring each is mixed in before adding the next. Incorporate the pumpkin puree and applesauce, mixing just until all the ingredients are well combined. Gradually add the flour mixture (remember, not the crumb mixture you set aside earlier) in three parts, stirring just until everything is harmoniously blended.
  5. To make the Creamy Cheese Filling, grab another medium bowl and use a hand mixer to beat 12 ounces of cream cheese and 1/3 cup of granulated sugar until the mixture becomes smooth and velvety. Add one large egg and 3/4 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract, mixing only until fully incorporated.
  6. Now, it’s time to bring all these delightful elements together. Spread half of the Pumpkin Cake mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish. Carefully layer the Creamy Cheese Filling on top of the cake mixture. Finish by adding the remaining Pumpkin Cake mixture, spreading it gently with a spatula. Some of the cream cheese filling might peek through – that’s a good thing! Be sure not to overwork it, as we want to maintain that delightful contrast between the cake and cheese layers.
  7. The crowning glory of this dessert is the Cinnamon Oat Crumb Topping. Sprinkle it generously over the top of your creation.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 50 minutes, or until the dessert is set and golden. Let it cool for 20 minutes before cutting into squares.

There you have it – a reimagined “Spiced Pumpkin Delight with Creamy Cheese Filling and Cinnamon Crisp.” It’s a harmonious blend of flavors and textures that will delight your taste buds and warm your heart.
