Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Maple Cinnamon Streusel

Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Maple Cinnamon Streusel

I am not the biggest fan of pumpkin but I love a good coffee cake. A good bit of streusel on top with a nice glaze makes it a great treat with a lovely cup of coffee or tea. The cake is light and fluffy and the streusel adds texture.

This is perfect for Thanksgiving morning and can even be divided into 12 muffins as well. I love this as a breakfast item but also as a post dinner dessert.



Cake Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Cake Instructions:

  • Preheat your oven to 400℉ and lightly grease a 9” springform pan.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a stand mixer, or in a bowl with a hand mixer, combined eggs and sugar.
  • Add pumpkin puree, vegetable oil and vanilla. Be sure these incorporate well before adding dry ingredients.

  • Sprinkle evenly all over the batter in the springform pan.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the internal temperature of the cake is 210℉.
