We’re thinking this pumpkin coffee cake warmed up on a chilly night with a glass of Don Isidro. Brown sugar glaze over a dense, spiced pumpkin cake would do the trick.
Pumpkin Coffee Cake
Light and fluffy coffee cake made the decadent way with a cream-and-butter brown sugar glaze. Feel free to thank me for the sugar coma later.
- ⅓ cups Water
- 1 can Pureed Pumpkin (15 Oz)
- 2 whole Eggs
- 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
- 2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 1 box Yellow Cake Mix (18 Ounce Box)
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 cup Brown Sugar, Divided
- ½ cups Flour
- ⅓ cups Walnuts, Chopped
- 4 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
- ¼ cups Granulated Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- ¼ cups Heavy Whipping Cream
Preheat the oven to 350F.
In a large bowl mix together the water, pumpkin, eggs, 1 Tablespoon of vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice until well combined. Add the cake mix and baking soda and mix until just combined.
Grease a 9×13 pan with butter and pour batter into pan.
In a small bowl mix together 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, walnuts, and melted butter. Use fingers to sprinkle over the top of the cake. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
For the glaze, combine the other 1/2 cup brown sugar, granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and heavy cream in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir until all sugar is dissolved.
When cake is finished baking, poke holes in the top with a toothpick. Pour glaze over the cake, making sure to cover all surfaces. Serve cake warm or at room temperature.
