Okay, I spoke to soon.

Pumpkin Coffee Cake I howsweeteats.com

In my defense, I made this pumpkin coffee cake waaaaay before I attempted 14 batches of chewy! pumpkin cookies. I swear.

It’s the cake that made me fall in love with that brown sugar glaze.

It’s the cake that lasted 12 hours in our house… scary.

The recipe comes from Heather, and I bookmarked it in my Tasty Kitchen recipe box LAST YEAR. I waited forever to make it!

    Absolutely stunning! I love pumpkin and HATE that I’m allergic to fall spices (cinnamon and allspice). You just made me fall in love with brown sugar glaze…

    You’re such a bad influence! My “nesting” phase seems to only involve cooking/baking. :) Yesterday after making 31 4 ounce jars of jam and homemade boudin sausage I saw this post. You know what I did? Made it right then and there. :) It was a huge hit. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Made this on a whim last night since I happened to have pumpkin in the freezer from muffins that I had to make on a whim last week!!!! WOW…. excellent and moist and YUMMY warm. My husband couldn’t wait for it to cool down so he burned his fingers and said he didn’t care. My daughter and I waited until it wasnt moulton lava anymore… this is delicious!!!!! If you are looking for something to take to bunko or dinner at your in laws, or something just to sit and eat while you’re watchig a movie … MAKE THIS!!!!!!

    OMG! Awesome and super easy recipe! I am a pastry chef by trade and I was a bit apprehensive to use a box cake but they do come out consistently moist and crumbly that I couldn’t resist. I pretty much ate half of it and then begged my boyfriend to bring the other half to his office so I wouldn’t it the rest. Definitely going to make this one again!

    Jessica, I will try this soon. This week I baked my first pie pumpkins. I’ve often made butternut, acorn and spaghetti squash, but wanted to bake a pumpkin and use that for recipes instead of the dark brown canned stuff. The pumpkin is delicious. So good, I didn’t even save it for the baked good. Just added some butter, brown sugar, pecans, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, ginger. Delicious. Have you tried using your own pumpkin for the cake? Would love to hear if the results were different. As always, I love your recipes and constantly wonder how you stay so thin?

    Hi! Do you think this could be made the nigh before, refrigerated, and then baked in the morning? I wasnt sure if it would mess anything up! Thanks so much. Brooke


    • Jessica — August 21st, 2012 @ 11:43 am

      I definitely would make a cake batter unless you are going to bake it immediately – you’d be better off baking the entire thing the night before and reheating in the morning!


      • Brooke & Freeland — August 21st, 2012 @ 11:58 am

        Thanks so much for the quick response!!! youre awesome

    This cake is awesome! Has anyone tried to freeze it with success?

    Got up [way too early] to make this for breakfast. So delicious and moist. I was too impatient to melt butter on the stove for the pre-glaze topping [I’m one of those freaks who doesn’t believe in microwaves] and it still turned out delicious. I can’t stop thinking about the half of pan that is sitting on my counter and the portion I brought in for my coworkers has officially been devoured.

    Coffee is a brewed beverage with a distinct aroma and flavor, prepared from the roasted seeds of the Coffea plant. The seeds are found in coffee “berries”, which grow on trees cultivated in over 70 countries, primarily in equatorial Latin America, Southeast Asia, India and Africa. Green (unroasted) coffee is one of the most traded agricultural commodities in the world.”

    Never apologize for anything pumpkin. Unless you stop making things outta pumpkin, in which case you should apologize for that.
