Easy Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Total Time

Versatile fall favorite in our house. Great with spiced coffee or chai. Tasty kid approved treat - our toddler loves slices of this cake when it's still warm from the oven. Serve warm slices of cake with vanilla ice cream or warm homemade custard sauce and whipped cream for an excellent dessert. Fabulous, no matter how you slice it!

Easy and it tastes wonderful! I made it on a night family was coming for dinner, everyone liked it and asked to take some home. I will be making this often this fall I can already tell! I added the nuts to the topping rather then the cake itself otherwise I followed it exactly.
