Reviews for Contest-Winning Pumpkin Coffee Cake
"Perfect as is. A hit with everyone."
"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!"
"delicious! Followed the recipe, as-is."
"easy to make, delicious to eat! Will make this again for sure."
"I first had made it when it was featured in quick Cooking, March/April 2005. I just topped the batter with the topping-I didn't layer it! I was pleased with the results! This is a great recipe to use and I thank you, Sarah, for sharing it! delowenstein"

"This we absolutely delicious. I had an almond flavored pound cake, and I added some golden raisins in the mix. I also was a bit generous w/ the pumpkin as we had a lot left over from another recipe. I will definitely make this again!"
