Delicious Pumpkin Coffee Cake with a brown sugar filling and topped with butter, pecans, cinnamon and sugar making it the perfect fall treat!

Who here loves COFFEE CAKE? I remember my mom making it for me before I went to a summer camp as an early teen. I can’t remember ever having it before that, but once I tried it I was hooked. Maybe it’s something about butter, cinnamon and sugar that is so addicting but I knew I loved the recipe. When I saw a Pumpkin Coffee Cake version from King Arthur Flour, I knew we had to give it a go. I had a feeling the recipe would be full of all the fall flavors everyone loves and would be a hit served as a coffee cake.

I’m glad we ended up trying this recipe, because it was indeed a hit! With cinnamon and sugar and pumpkin flavoring, we really couldn’t go wrong with this recipe. We ended up making a few changes to make it a little more moist and loved that it came out perfect. This is definitely another recipe to try this fall, especially if you’re a pumpkin lover and would be perfect for brunch or even a baby or bridal shower. Just be sure to have napkins because there was plenty of cinnamon and sugar on top!

I told you there was lots of cinnamon and sugar on top. 😉

We’ve made several different pumpkin “cakes” over the years and we definitely think this one is a keeper. It just screams fall time and is so scrumptious, it’s sure not to last long in your home.

Nice tweak to, at least the coffee cake version that I’m used to, love that you’ve added pumpkin here! Not just for Thanksgiving, I think pumpkin is under-utilized during the rest of the year, so thank you for giving it it’s due here!

    I agree! Pumpkin needs to be used more throughout the year 🙂 It’s so good!
