Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Monday, November 24, 2014

I can't believe Thanksgiving is only a few days away! Stephen and I are loving our time up north with my family. Since Thanksgiving is this week and after that is nothing but Christmas, I'm giving y'all one last pumpkin recipe. We had a potluck this week at work and I decided to bring pumpkin coffee cake. I made it for a different potluck a few years ago as well and it's been a hit both times! I got the recipe here and it's super easy to make!

Please ignore my not very good pictures, I couldn't get that great of one.

After the glaze has settled into the cake

- 1/3 cup water
- 1 (15 oz) can pureed pumpkin
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 (18 oz) box yellow cake mix
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup brown sugar, divided
- 1/2 cup flour
- 4 tbsp butter, melted
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

1. In a large bowl, mix together the water, pumpkin, eggs, 1 tbsp vanilla and pumpkin pie spice until well combined. Add the cake mix and baking soda and mix until combined.

2. Grease a 9x13 pan and pour the batter into the pan. 

3. In a smaller bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of brown sugar, flour and melted butter. Stir until well combined and then use your fingers to sprinkle over the cake.

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 min. Make sure cake is done but inserting a toothpick. If toothpick is clean, the cake is done.

5. For the glaze, combine 1/2 brown sugar, granulated sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract and heavy cream in a saucepan and bring it to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir until all sugar is dissolved. 

6. After the cake has baked, poke holes in the top with a toothpick so the glaze can seep into the cake. Pour the glaze over the cake, making sure to cover all surfaces. Serve the cake warm, at room temperature or cold.
