Are you looking forward to the holiday season as much as I am?  I know it’s not quite November yet, but I’m already SO excited for Thanksgiving.

I always love hosting Thanksgiving dinner.  It’s great to welcome extended family to our home, and treat them to so much delicious and heartwarming food.  It makes so many happy memories for everyone, especially my kids.  At ages 7 and 9 now (how did that happen so fast??), they are really beginning to catch on to the all the fun traditions, and to look forward to enjoying this special time year after year.

At our house, Thanksgiving often ends up being more than just the Thursday night feast.  Many times, we have overnight guests staying with us for several days over that long weekend.  And when we do, it’s great to have something delicious to offer them for breakfast or an afternoon pick-me-up.

This pumpkin spice coffee cake is just perfect for those times.  From it’s moist sour cream cake, infused with pumpkin spice and ribboned with real pumpkin, all the way to the crunchy, cinnamon pecan crumb topping and the luscious glaze, it’s a holiday treat that you and your guests will love.

This pumpkin spice coffee cake gets its distinctive flavor from International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer.  Have you ever used coffee creamer in your baked goods?  It subs for dairy flawlessly, and brings all kinds of incredible flavor with it.

I took a little taste of the creamer before adding it to the cake, pumpkin filling, and glaze, and I knew right then and there that this cake was going to be amazing.  It’s really creamy, with plenty of warm spice and a hint of buttery-ness that just takes the flavor of this coffee cake to another level.

And the aromas!  As the cake baked, my whole house was filled with the most intoxicating smell.  My son got it the minute he walked in from school, and he couldn’t wait to steal a slice.

Even if you aren’t planning on hosting a whole house full of guests this season, you’ve gotta try this pumpkin spice coffee cake!  Try bringing it as a hostess gift, or just keep it for yourself!  It’s a great way to celebrate the season and treat yourself.

Serve up a slice alongside a tall glass of International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Iced Coffee!  It’s brand new, so convenient, and perfect if you live in a warmer climate.  Or if you’re having the same kind of crazy fall weather we’ve been having here in the Philadelphia area!  It’s creamy and full of sweet, cinnamon-y coffee flavor, and it just doesn’t get more refreshing on a warm day.

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Cake

Serves 12 to 14 servings     adjust servings

Ingredients

For the crumb topping

  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans

For the pumpkin swirl

For the cake

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

For the glaze

Instructions

  1. To make the crumb topping:

    1. Melt the butter in a medium pot over low heat.  Stir in the remaining ingredients with a fork, until evenly distributed.

    To make the pumpkin swirl:

    1. Stir pumpkin, International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer, brown sugar, egg, and salt together in a medium bowl.

    To make the cake:

    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and mist a 10-inch diameter tube pan with non-stick spray.
    2. Place the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl and whisk to combine.  Add the softened butter, mixing on medium speed, until the mixture resembles damp sand.  Add the eggs, one at a time, scraping the bottom and sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula after each addition.  Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula, and stir in the International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer and sour cream.  Mix on medium-high speed for about 90 seconds, to aerate the batter and develop the cake’s structure.
    3. Layer 1/3 of the batter in the prepared pan.  Top with half the pumpkin swirl mixture.  Repeat with another 1/3 of the cake batter and the remaining pumpkin swirl.  Top with the last of the cake batter, and sprinkle the crumb topping in an even layer on top.  Bake for 60 minutes, or until a bamboo skewer inserted in the thickest part of the cake comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.  Cool completely, unmold, and drizzle with glaze.

    To make the glaze:

    1. Stir the powdered sugar and International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer together until smooth.
