Pumpkin Crunch Cake

Print Friendly and PDF Growing up, I have always had a major sweet tooth. Cookies and ice cream and candy and cakes...you get the picture. But when you need a gluten free alternative, it can be tricky to find something that tastes good and still fits your dietary needs.

The Pumpkin Crunch Cake is my absolute favorite recipe. It's easy to make, and it's a huge hit in my family. It has a custard-y texture with a buttery crunch on top, a perfect combination that tastes great with ice cream, too. We first made it back a few years ago, and now my little sister makes it for us on her own. She brought it as potlock one time, and a friend of ours liked it so much that she requested we make her another cake!

Although there are several Pumpkin Crunch Cake recipes, we like to use the one from The Thrifty Frugal Mom.

Since it isn't a gluten free recipe, we use Betty Crocker's gluten free yellow cake mix. I haven't tried the recipe both ways, but my sisters (who are not gluten free) agree that it tastes the same with a slight difference in texture. They could hardly tell a difference!
