CINNAMON PUMPKIN COFFEE CAKE tastes like heaven! It’s the ultimate fall comfort dessert! It will be gone in a flash!
The other day we went to our friends’ house for a labor Day barbecue and I brought dessert. I wanted to bring some kind of coffee cake. They’re so simple to make and I love them after dinner for a crowd. I decided to go with pumpkin because it’s the BEST, duh! Facebook just showed me my husband’s post from last year that sums up my fall love.

Well, after I made this Cinnamon Pumpkin Coffee Cake he’s on board! I did it!!! It was a hit at the Labor Day barbecue and I thought it was a fitting way to celebrate the beginning of fall!
I have been craving my Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake lately and wanted to see if it would be even better with pumpkin. Let me tell you, it was!!! The warmth that you get from the cinnamon topping is amazing. I love the cinnamon buttery goodness swirled on top of this cake and felt like it made it. It tastes like a cinnamon roll pumpkin coffee cake and that is amazing!
