Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Apple Pumpkin Coffee Cake – A great coffee cake for fall. The apple keeps the cake super moist, and the pumpkin gives it that great fall flavor.

Coffee cake is one of my favorite weekend breakfasts.  It is what I great up with on weekend, so I still love it today.  I added chocolate to our favorite version in this Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake recipe.

Today I am dressing it up for fall using pumpkin!  Pumpkin in any form is always a good idea!  If you like cookies, these Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are a must try.

Apples and pumpkins are all over the place right now.  So I decided to combine the two into one coffee cake.  The apples are shredded, so they keep the cake super moist.  Plus it has a streusel topping, so pretty much everyone is going to love it! Kind of like this Apple Pie Bread – the struesel just makes it!

I almost put a little vanilla glaze, drizzled over the top too.  But I thought that might be the line that takes it from breakfast to dessert.  And, really, I want any excuse I can, to have cake for breakfast.  Keep this apple pumpkin coffee cake recipe handy for the next time you have guests, Thanksgiving morning, or some random Tuesday morning.

I used Mazola® Corn Oil to make this pumpkin coffee cake.  There’s even a new study out that show corn oil significantly reduces cholesterol with more favorable changes in total cholesterol (TC) and LDL-C than extra virgin olive oil.  Corn oil has natural cholesterol-blocking ability of plant sterols, so it can have really positive effects on blood cholesterol levels.

I just love it when cake becomes a little bit better for you!  And there are no worries about taste, you will never know this coffee cake wasn’t made with all butter! And with that leftover pumpkin, you have tons of other pumpkin recipes to pick from to use it!!

Apple Pumpkin Coffee Cake - Breakfast just got a whole lots tastier

This pumpkin coffee cake is going to be a hit for your fall brunch!  It has all the cinnamon and pumpkin spice flavors that you love with pumpkin desserts, but you get to eat it for breakfast!  And for dessert you can serve these Caramel Apple Pie Bars, because apples are the other fall staple!  

Pumpkin crumb cake is a must each year.  The crumb topping is just so good!  Because let’s face it, the more crumb topping the better!
