This is the fall recipe you’ve all been waiting for- Pumpkin Coffee Cake! A big slice of spiced pumpkin cake with cream cheese filling in the center and crunchy brown sugar-cinnamon crumbs on top drizzled with sweet glaze, paired with a cup of coffee is perfect way to start a fall day.
And that’s what I love the most about every coffee cake. You can devour a big fat slice of cake in the morning without filling any guilt. I’m totally obsessed with coffee cakes.
Perhaps you’ve noticed, two of the three recipes have cream cheese filling. Well, I know, I know… Coffee cake should be simple, single layered cake with streusel topping and possibly with a simple glaze drizzled on top, but who cares?! A little cream cheese filling won’t hurt anyone!!!
Cream cheese filling makes this moist and flavorful, spiced pumpkin cake really special. You could eat it for a breakfast or a snack, but it look fancy enough to show off at a Halloween party or to be served as a dessert after Thanksgiving dinner.
No matter when or where you eat it, you’re going to love this Pumpkin Coffee Cake. The cake itself is not too sweet, but it’s very moist and flavorful. Crunchy brown sugar-cinnamon streusel topping and powdered sugar glaze sweeten the cake. When you grab a fork and dig in, you’ll have the perfect combo in every single bite.
The recipe has a long list of ingredients and steps, but don’t let that distract you from baking. These are all simple ingredients and every step is really easy. You can’t go wrong with any of these. When your kitchen start bursting with lovely pumpkin and spice smell you’ll forget all the effort.
