Pumpkin Apple Streusel Cake

Another cake from the non-baker. This is really a fall dessert but it equally yummy for the holidays.

5-6 cups of slices, peeled, cored Granny Smith apples
1/4 c sugar

3 c flour
2 c packed brown sugar
2 sticks butter, room temp, cut into pieces
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 c canned pure pumpkin
2/3 c sour cream
1/4 c sugar
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp baking soda
4 large eggs

Mix apples with sugar and cinnamon to taste. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 350. Spray 13x9 cake pan. Combine flour, brown sugar, butter, and salt in a large bowl. Mix until mixture is crumbly. Set aside 1 1/3 c for topping. Add pumpkin, sour cream, sugar, spice, and baking soda into remaining flour mixture until smooth. Add eggs.

Transfer batter to pan. Scatter apples evenly over the top and sprinkle with reserved topping. Bake 65-75 minutes until knife comes out clean. Serve warm or room temp with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.
