Pumpkin Cheese Coffee Cake

This is one of my favorite recipes, especially in autumn. It is much easier to make than a traditional pumpkin roll - and it's always a crowd-pleaser! -Carlene Jessop, Hildale, Utah

    I substituted oatmeal for the coconut and added two tablespoons of butter and two tablespoons of flour to give it more of a streusel topping. Also used pumpkin pie spice as others did. Dense, moist cake. Delicious!

    This is a wonderful fall recipe. I have made it several times and it is always a hit. Super moist and tastes great even days later (if it lasts that long!) I like to add nutmeg and cloves for some extra spice.

    I cut this recipe in half and baked in an 8-inch square pan as the 13 x 9 inch is too much for us. This was not quite as moist as I would have liked, perhaps because I halved the recipe. The cheese seemed to stay on top and didn't seem to marble right. It was delicious served fresh. Next time I make it, I will make the full recipe and take more time swirling the cream cheese mixture. All in all, a good cake.
