  • 10-ounce ramekin


  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin (not pie filling)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons salted butter , melted
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup milk


  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter , softened


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a ramekin or small baking dish with oil spray and set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
  • In a smaller bowl, mix together the pumpkin, melted butter, egg yolk and milk.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until well blended.
  • Transfer to prepared baking dish and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix together streusel ingredients with a fork until crumbly.
  • Pour over pumpkin cake batter and spread evenly over the top.
  • Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and place on a baking rack to cool. Run a knife around the rim of the baking dish and remove coffee cake from the dish. Serve.


Expert Tips
  • We recommend using a 10-ounce ramekin. If you use a ramekin that is smaller than the one recommended, divide the batter between the two and bake as directed.
  • Don't overmix the batter. Mix the ingredients just until they are combined.
  • Measure the flour correctly. We recommend spooning the flour into the measuring cup until it is overfilled. Then use the flat edge of a kitchen knife to level the measuring up at the top.
