Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

I got the recipe from How Sweet It Is, one of my favorite blogs. Go check it out then come right back!

This is a little bit of a cheat coffee cake. It has all the bells and whistles of a coffee cake, but it’s made with a boxed cake mix and has more of an gooey butter cake feel. It’s less traditional coffee cake, but still totally and ridiculously awesome. The addition of the pumpkin puree really takes it over the top for me. I would highly recommend making this if you need a dessert in a hurry. It comes together very quickly and what’s even better is that you don’t even need the mixer, just a fork and a wooden spoon.

Serves 18
Ingredients

1/3 cups Water
1 can Pureed Pumpkin (15 Oz)
2 whole Eggs
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 box Yellow Cake Mix (18 Ounce Box)
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 cup Brown Sugar, Divided
½ cups Flour
4 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
¼ cups Granulated Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
¼ cups Heavy Whipping Cream

Preparation Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350F.

In a large bowl mix together the water, pumpkin, eggs, 1 Tablespoon of vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice until well combined. Add the cake mix and baking soda and mix until just combined.

 Grease a 9×13 pan with butter and pour batter into pan.

 In a small bowl mix together 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour and melted butter. Use your fingers to sprinkle over the top of the cake. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

 For the glaze, combine the other 1/2 cup brown sugar, granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and heavy cream in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir until all sugar is dissolved.

 When cake is finished baking, poke holes in the top with a toothpick. Pour glaze over the cake, making sure to cover all surfaces. Serve cake warm or at room temperature.

Happy Baking,

Melissa


Back to School

As a parent at this point of the year we have the feeling of an ending summer and back to school around the corner. For many of you school has started. As I see from all the beautiful facebook posts of first day pictures. The first day of school comes with so many emotions. Ether it is for pre-k all the way to college there is excitement in the air. I am the mother of three Kailey (10y), Kristynna (13y) and Kaitlyn (17y). This year I officially have two middle school and a first year of college. Never mind the hormones that are flying through my house, school is coming, whether we like it or not. Kailey keeps telling me she is working on her summer homework, and far be it for me to argue. We all know I will be typing book reports before the first day of school……lol. Kristynna has her backpack packed, and ready to go since August first. College just hasn’t hit Kaitlyn yet. She is still riding a high from graduation and summer fun. Well I wish you all a beautiful and successful school year and I will keep you posted on ours.
