Nothing says fall like pumpkin spice, and nothing says easy breakfast like a coffee cake. A perfect companion to your hot cup of joe, this cake is moist, sweet, and a little spicy. The crumb topping really completes the bread and also makes it look so beautiful!
I love any pumpkin breakfast recipe, like pumpkin scones, a pumpkin shake or pumpkin oatmeal. But, this bread is the perfect gift for someone that needs a sweet treat and also makes a great breakfast for guests.
I like using regular canned pumpkin or canned pumpkin pie mix. I just don’t have the energy for roasting my own pumpkins these days! Also, the extra roasting would impede on the simplicity of this recipe!
The pumpkin really helps keep the loaf moist, but so does the right amount of butter, eggs, and milk! Also, make sure not to over mix the mixture. You want it to remain soft and moist and over-mixing will cause it to be tougher.
