Pumpkin Coffee Cake with a layer of cream cheese filling and crispy streusel topping.
Last stop on the Pumpkin Train! I’m finishing off my fall pumpkin series with this Pumpkin Coffee Cake. This one would be great for visiting Thanksgiving guests! It has cream cheese inside so you know it has to be good. I recently had sliced cream cheese on a burger out here in Japan and realized that cream cheese is a lot like bacon – it makes everything better!
But back to pumpkin. This cake has a great texture that’s not as dense as pumpkin bars or pumpkin bread. It’s then layered with a tangy cream cheese filling, which I could practically eat by the spoonful. Top that all off with a crispy, crumbly streusel and you have a cake just begging for a cup of coffee. Or a glass of milk. Or just straight out of the pan while simultaneously taking pictures because it’s too good to wait any longer. 🙂
