For the Cake


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Line with parchment paper a 9-inch round baking pan, leaving an overhang on the sides to lift the cake out when it’s done. Set aside.
  • First make the crumb topping by adding in a small bowl, coconut flour, almond flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon, maple syrup, and coconut oil. Mix everything well to combine. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, add coconut oil, maple syrup, coconut sugar, pumpkin and eggs. Whisk together until combined.
  • Add the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and salt. Mix until the batter is smooth.
  • Pour the batter into prepared pan and sprinkle the crumbs over the batter, pressingly lightly so they stick.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow cake to cool completely before serving.
  • Store covered in fridge after the first day.


  • You can try my homemade pumpkin puree if you cannot find canned pumpkin.
  • Canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie filling are different as pumpkin pie filling is seasoned with spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and sugar. Make sure to buy the correct one.
  • Make sure not to overmix the batter as it'll make the cake tough.
  • To store: Store the cake in the fridge for up to a week or on the counter for a day. Make sure it's in an airtight container. 
  • To freeze: You can freeze the cake for up to 3 months. You can freeze the bread in an individual slice or as a full cake.
