This Pumpkin Coffee Cake is so delicious! It has a thick, dense, and buttery streusel topping which is undoubtedly the best thing about this Coffee Cake.
When I think of Pumpkin coffee cake, I think of a buttery streusel on top of a Pumpkin spiced, moist and dense cake.
I typically, make it early in the morning and put it in the oven.
It only takes 30 minutes to get baked and by the time everybody is up, the house is smelling warm and festive and I love to serve everyone a big piece of this delicious Pumpkin Coffee Cake. 😋😋
Today being the first day of Fall, I thought of making this super cozy and delicious Vegan Pumpkin Coffee Cake.
I know, its literally a Pumpkin Party in my blog right now! 🎃 😄
My readers keep telling me about how they love my Fall recipes and the endless list of Pumpkin recipes which I have been making since the beginning of September.
I just love Fall so much that I have been running to the store to get tonnes of canned Pumpkin Puree and Pumpkin spice to make these endless Pumpkin desserts!
But it's always fun. I keep waiting for this beautiful time of the year. The chilly nights, the cozy days, and the festive spirit. It is all just so so so good...!
When I think about a Typical Coffee Cake, the first thought that comes to my mind is the buttery streusel on top. This Buttery streusel is pretty thick and quite dense.
It's quite unlike a crumble or a crisp. Also, the coffee cake streusel is made without Oats. I have made so many Coffee Cakes in the Past - be it the Banana Coffee Cake or my Peach Coffee Cake Muffins or my Blueberry Coffee Cake!
The only thing common in all of these is the buttery and cinnamony crust, which makes these cakes super delicious and perfect for a cozy breakfast, aside from some quick coffee and some fresh fruits.
