How to Make Pecan Pumpkin Crunch Cake:

To make the pumpkin layer, in a large mixing bowl combine the pumpkin puree, heavy cream, eggs, sugar, spices, and salt. Whisk everything together by hand. You can use a mixer if you want, but it’s not necessary. The batter will be runny but it’s OK. Pour the mixture in a greased baking dish and set aside.

To make the pecan crunch, in another bowl, using a fork cut in softened butter in flour, brown sugar and cinnamon mixture. Sprinkle one-third of the mixture over the pumpkin layer, then stir in pecans in remaining mixture and sprinkle on top and bake 40-50 minutes or until the center has set. Cool and serve with a dollop of whipped cream and salted caramel on top. Vanilla ice cream would be a delicious option, too.
