How To Make Pumpkin Coffee Cake

First, make sure to use Pumpkin pure, not pumpkin pie filling! You can use homemade or the one from the can. You can find the recipe for homemade pumpkin puree on my blog, too.

Also, about the spices, if you don’t have all spices listed in the recipe (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, all-spice), you can substitute with pumpkin pie spice.

Recipe ingredients and steps might seem too long, but it’s all simple ingredients, and the steps are easy to follow. Streusel crumb mixture is just the combo of all-purpose flour, light brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, and melted butter. Just whisk everything with the fork, until coarse crumbs are formed.

Cheesecake layer is mixture of room temperature cream cheese, vanilla, sugar and an egg. It’s done in two minutes.

Finally, the star of the show, pumpkin cake layer. In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: flour, spices, baking powder, and salt.

In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, sugar, brown sugar, oil, milk, eggs, and vanilla, and mix until smooth. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, and whisk or stir until combined.

To assemble the cake, spread pumpkin cake batter in prepared pan. Using a spoon dallop cream cheese on top, but do not go all the way to the edges. Using the back of the spoon gently spread cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle the streusel crumb over the top and bake muffins for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

And not forget the vanilla icing. Stir powdered sugar, dash of salt and vanilla with some milk and drizzle over the cake.

How To Store The Cake?

You can keep it covered at room temperature for the next day, then place in the fridge and keep up to one week in an air-tight container.
