Pumpkin Coffee Cake
Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Pumpkin Coffee Cake is moist and delicious and full of flavor. Dusted with a little powdered sugar and served with a warm cup of cappuccino or a glass of cold milk.

Pumpkin recipes are always very popular during the fall months. But, around my house, we use pumpkin in our cooking regularly. I always keep at least 4 or 5 cans of pumpkin puree in my pantry. Pumpkin is very healthy and a great ingredient to add to desserts and breads to give it an added goodness.

During the fall months, I visit our local orchard and get fresh pumpkin pie pumpkins. Making your own pumpkin puree is easy to do and one that you know what the ingredients are. Normally, I bake up the pumpkin and puree it immediately and make all sorts of baked goodies for my kids. Some get put in the freezer after baked so the kids can bring them out from time to time to eat.

I try and can at least 12 quarts of pumpkin chunks to store in my pantry. They are easy to use and quite convenient. Drain out the liquid and put the chunks in the blender for easy puree.

My kids love pumpkin muffins made during the fall and this year I decided to try a little moist Pumpkin Coffee Cake with the added Crumb Topping. I normally make Banana Bread Coffee Cake with leftover bananas. It is one that the kids love to eat for breakfast and normally doesn’t stay in the house long.
