Pumpkin Coffee Cake Recipe

Table of Contents

The only thing better than a warm cup of coffee is enjoying it with a slice of coffee cake. I mean, this type of cake was born to make coffee time more enjoyable! Now, not all coffee cakes are created equal. There are many types of coffee cake out there and you can make most of them at home pretty easily.

Ultimately, I have a new favorite coffee cake, one I often make for the cold season, and that’s the pumpkin coffee cake. Heartwarming and beautifully seasoned with cinnamon and nutmeg, this is one of those bakes that taste like home. With a nice creamy latte or a foamy cappuccino, this cake feels just right, and it will keep you warm and cozy even on the chilliest evenings.

Pumpkin Coffee Cake Recipe-2

How to Make a Pumpkin Coffee Cake?

This coffee cake starts like most cakes, with flour, sugar, eggs, baking soda, baking powder, and a pinch of salt — you know the drill. When you add the pumpkin purée, though, magic happens!

And you know what goes great with pumpkin purée? Cinnamon and nutmeg, of course. Together, they turn this coffee cake into a seasonal specialty that goes great with other holiday specials, like a pumpkin spice latte and the likes. You must agree that fall flavors are the most comforting, especially when cold outside. This coffee cake will make you feel warm inside, guaranteed.

What to Serve with Pumpkin Coffee Cake?

Pumpkin spice lattes are fantastic with our pumpkin coffee cake, but you can also serve it with a dab of whipped cream on the side, especially if home whipped! And if it’s too late for coffee, a warm glass of milk will make you feel tightly tucked and cared for.
