CHEW THE RIGHT THING
HG's Pumpkin Streusel Coffee Cake
The Streus' Is Loose!
Craving something sweet and holiday-ish to go with your morning java? Good thing we're keeping busy in the HG kitchen whipping up stuff like this! This cake is a real crowd-pleaser, too, so make it the next time you're having a few people over!
1/4 cup Fiber One Original bran cereal
3 tbsp. old-fashioned oats
3 tbsp. brown sugar (not packed)
2 tbsp. granulated white sugar (or HG Alternative)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup granulated white sugar (or HG Alternative)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup canned pure pumpkin
1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/2 cup club soda
1/3 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8" X 8" baking pan with nonstick spray.
To make the crumb topping, place cereal in a sealable plastic bag. Seal bag, and finely crush cereal with a meat mallet or other heavy utensil. Transfer crumbs to a medium bowl. Add all other topping ingredients to the bowl except butter, and mix well. Add butter, and mash and stir until uniform.
To make the cake, in a large bowl, combine whole-wheat flour, sugar, all-purpose flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Whisk thoroughly.
In a medium-large bowl, combine pumpkin, egg substitute, club soda, buttermilk, and vanilla extract. Whisk until uniform. Add mixture to the large bowl, and whisk until uniform.
Pour cake batter into the baking pan. Sprinkle with crumb topping.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.
Let cool for 30 minutes. Slice into squares, and eat!

Pumpkin Coffee Cake, Average
Take the Cake… Away.
OK, straight-talk time. At this point in the season, sweet pumpkin temptation has been lurking around every corner for months. Don't cave in to the call of these spiced and sugary treats! Pumpkin coffee cake may sound innocent, but it's typically quite the fattening foe, especially the streusel-topped kind. Too much sugar, flour, butter, and eggs... It all results in undesirable nutritionals. Make room for an HG makeover! Our cake is moist, delicious, and packed with real pumpkin. Plus, it's topped with sweet, crumbly streusel goodness! Oh yeah, it's also guilt-free. So do yourself a favor... ignore the slabs of conventional (fatty) coffee cake. Our swap is totally worth making, chewing, and celebrating!
Serving: 1 piece
PointsPlus® value 13*
