This Pumpkin Coffee Cake has a creative and yummy topping and makes for a great and easy cake for fall. Have it ready in about an hour. As the name suggests, coffee cakes are relatively simple creations, designed to be eaten at home with your family or a small group with a good cup of coffee on the side. Throwing pumpkin into the mix makes for a nice way to welcome the onset of autumn.
Since the core of this recipe is a simple cake mix, there is rather little hassle involved here. Many coffee cakes are made with little or no topping; I thought that the graham cracker and pecan mixture was a nice touch, especially with a simple cream cheese glaze. Of course, I do recommend having some nice, hot coffee with this. Depending on your preferred coffee blend, you may consider mixing a touch of cinnamon into it to complement the flavor of the cake in a festive, seasonal fashion.
