Contest-Winning Pumpkin Coffee Cake Recipe

It's tough to resist a second piece of this delightful treat with its comforting flavor. It's a breeze to throw together because it calls for pound cake mix and canned pumpkin. —Sarah Steele Moulton, Alabama
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling YIELD:9 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) pound cake mix
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons butter, melted

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Pour half of the pumpkin mixture into a greased 9-in. square baking pan.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the topping ingredients; sprinkle half over the batter. Carefully spread with remaining batter. Sprinkle with remaining topping (pan will be full).

"This was a great recipe! It was very moist and tasty. The only thing I did was add a 1/2 a cup of pumpkin morsels and drizzled the cake with a glaze. This is a keeper!"
