Oh, VB, I shouldn't even admit this--I definitely get the Idiot Award this weekend! Actually, the lesson I should learn is to never try a new recipe the morning after my daughter keeps me up most of the night! Anyway, I mixed the pumpkin mixture into the cake batter and shorted the darn thing an egg. Ack! I'm chalking it up to an experiment. It's in the oven now and actually looks and smells quite good. Once I restock the pantry I'm going to try the real recipe!

Remarkably, Sofie's napped through the entire episode. I think I'll charge DH with oven watching and go nap!

I'll let you know how my mess turns out!

You know, it's not bad at all! If I had to name what I ended up making, I'd call it Pumpkin Custard Squares. There's a thin layer of cake on the bottom and top with a very thick pumpkin-pie like layer in the middle. The streusel topping is delicious! They're very rich, and not a loss at all. We've already enjoyed several.

Wow! Your recipe sounds great and I just wondered to my husband if I should make a banana cake this next Thursday for a group of my non-American friends----but I'm making your recipe instead--unfortunately I don't have pumpkin spice but I do have cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger. I'm sure that I can Google and concoct a fair approximation. Sour cream here is to die for, too.

I believe that anything you made with the love of your heart and can be eaten without distress is no failure. I know all about naps, by the way

I never buy pumpkin pie spice, either. I always keep the individual ingredients on hand. A basic rule of thumb is more cinnamon, equal ginger and nutmeg, and less cloves.

Hope you like it.

Dear Vera Blue.

I googled in "Sour Cream Pumpkin Streusel Cake" and this same recipe was googled everywhere but loose so it really must be GREAT!!!!!!! So thanks for bringing it to DC's attention --otherwise I never would have seen it-----I can't wait to make it. The conversion recipe that I found for the 1 teaspoon of pumpkin spice was: for each teaspoon of pumpkin spice use 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ginger, and 1/8 teaspoon of EACH nutmeg and cloves. Thanks so much Vera Blue for posting this recipe!!
