Fall 2020 is about enjoying all the little things. Fall foliage, apple cider, cooler weather and of course pumpkin desserts. I was in search of a pumpkin dessert that also doubled as a dessert my kitchen helper already loves, which is coffee cake. So when I came across this Pumpkin Coffee Cake recipe from King Arthur Baking I knew I had to try it.
This recipe is a classic streusel coffee cake with the thick layer of crumb topping and center layer of more delicious sugar cinnamon mixture. The pumpkin flavor is not overpowering and the cake has a great texture. The use of the oil really provides a moist and delicious cake. There are three parts of this recipe and it’s pretty easy to put together, this would be a great Thanksgiving morning breakfast treat, Sunday brunch and if you are like me, a perfect companion to my 3pm coffee break.

Thank you for the recipe! Do you have any suggestions on how to make this with less sugar in the cake?
Hi Erica. I did a little research and you could eliminate the 1 cup of sugar and replace it with 3/4 cup honey. Also keep in mind that this is adding in more liquid so reduce the oven temperature 25 degrees.
