If you’re pecan pie or coffee cake lover you will totally head over heels for this absolutely irresistible combination of sweet and gooey pecan pie filling baked right on top of moist and tender coffee cake. This decadent, melt-in-your-mouth Pecan Pie Coffee Cake would be perfect Thanksgiving or Christmas dessert.
I have a weakness for coffee cakes! I’m not a morning person and I usually pass the breakfast but when I have a coffee cake sitting in my fridge I gladly jump out of bed, grab a slice and crawl back under the blanket. Coffee Cake is totally acceptable breakfast!!!
A big slice of this delicious Pecan Pie Coffee Cake and a cup of coffee are perfect way to make this cold and rainy days more comfortable.
After my very popular Cinnamon Apple Crumb Cake from the last year, I recently made a pumpkin version. Somehow , when fall baking season starts I’m totally obsessed with coffee cakes. After apples and pumpkin, pecans are perfect flavor for fall dessert.
I used my Pecan Pie Cheesecake as an inspiration for this Pecan Pie Coffee Cake.
Although I’m a huge fan of crumbs on every coffee cake I thought it would be great to top the coffee cake with gooey and sweet pecan pie filling instead the usual crumbs.
Moist cake with tender crumbs and delicious pecan pie filling packed into one dessert… WOW, I loved the idea! Pecan Pie Coffee Cake has it all!
The cake layer is my all-time favorite sour cream coffee cake recipe, I have already used for my Strawberry Cheesecake Coffee Cake and Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake . It’s my go-to coffee cake recipe! I like it so much because it makes super soft cake with tender crumbs. For this Pecan Pie Coffee Cake I used plain Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream, and it worked great.
The cake was really moist on its own, and when it soaked some of sweet and gooey pecan pie topping it became the best coffee cake I’ve ever tried.
