Vegan Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Pecan Crumb

by VeganRicha »

Ingredients

Dry:
1—1/2 cups flour (I generally use a mix of Spelt/Wheat and unbleached all purpose)
½ cup powdered vegan sugar (Use 2 tbsp more for sweeter)
2 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
2 to 4 tsp pumpkin pie spice ( or 11/2 tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp ginger, ¼ to ⅓ tsp nutmeg, ⅛ tsp cloves)
3 to 4 tbsp chopped walnuts or pecans

Wet:
1 cup pureed pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix
½ cup non dairy milk (almond or soy or lite coconut)
3 to 4 Tbsp oil
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Streusel
6 tablespoons flour
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1 tbsp granulated sugar , optional
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or chai spice or a mix of cardamom and cinnamon
1/3 tsp salt
2.5 tbsp refined coconut oil
US Customary – Metric

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a brownie pan with parchment. In a bowl, add all the dry ingredients and whisk well.

Add the wet ingredients to the bowl and mix to just about combine. Let it sit for 2 minutes, then mix again to ensure there are no dry flour streaks. Pour the thick batter into the brownie pan. Even it out using a spatula.

Make the Streusel by mixing everything in a bowl with your fingers or a spoon until crumbly, Add a tsp or so more oil if needed.

Sprinkle all over the cake and evenly spread. Bake the cake for 40 to 45 minutes. Test with a toothpick from the center.

Cool completely before slicing. Serve with turmeric pumpkin spice latte.. For a decadent dessert, add a light drizzle of plain sugar icing.

Instant Pots

I found this so helpful at Amazon:

In an ideal world, you might enjoy a well-equipped kitchen collection, complete with slow cooker, pressure cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, rice cooker and more. In reality, how many of us really have the cabinet or counter space to store all these appliances? Enter the Instant Pot. This handy appliance offers models ranging from 6-in-1 to 10-in-1, and can tackle all kinds of culinary chores. “Instant Pot” is the name on everyone’s lips when it comes to multi cookers, and we can see why. Instant Pot plays the multi cooker game like no other, and has some top notch products on the market.

My Choice

Here’s what I got. It comes in 3 Qt, 6 Qt and 8 Qt. I got the 6 quart one. It really makes all of these goodies. Imagine that.

Gift yourself or someone you really love — good cook, bad cook, indifferent cook.  It will not end up in basement or attic. It does so much!

* A Note about Vegan Crisp Cereal

Regarding the crisp cereal called for in the treats below. It appears Rice Krispies are still not quite vegan. It’s about some of the additives.

So we recommend Erewhon cereals which are rated nice and crispy. And definitely vegan. Learn about Erewhon cereals here including store locator » You can also order Erewhon cereals from Amazon »

About Dandies

From the Dandies website

Dandies Marshmallows are made with all natural ingredients, contain no high fructose corn syrup or gelatin (they’re 100% vegan!), and are the first ever marshmallow to be Non-GMO Project Verified. Oh, and our marshmallows are kosher too!

Traditional marshmallows are loaded with unnatural ingredients and made with gelatin (a yucky animal-based ingredient, look it up). We recognized that these family-favorite treats desperately needed an ingredient-list makeover.

Dandies Marshmallows are indistinguishable from conventional marshmallows. Our light and fluffy marshies are perfect for roasting over a campfire, putting in hot chocolate (or coffee—try it!), classic crispy treats, s’mores, or just straight snackin’!
