PUMPKIN SPICED COFFEE CAKE WITH BROWN BUTTER GLAZE



Spiced coffee cake with pumpkin and walnuts, drizzled in a spiced brown butter glaze. The perfect way to start a fall morning!

Pumpkin, my friend,  I am so happy that you have made your triumphant return!

You can’t enjoy pumpkin spice all day if you don’t start early! How about breakfast? Pumpkin Spiced Coffee Cake with Brown Butter Glaze is the perfect way to start a fall morning.  

As much as I adore summer — and all of it’s relaxing ways, fall has always and forever been my favorite.  The scents, the clothes, the sports, the crunching leaves on my brisk morning walks, all of these are just the beginning of what I love about it.  For those of you who aren’t fans of pumpkin, or roll your eyes at the constant Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING, I am sorry — but here is one more to add to the books.  Of course, if you aren’t a fan, you probably aren’t reading this anyway.

This cake starts with a spice cake box mix, but then you add in some pumpkin puree and a little extra flour to help absorb some of that extra moisture. 

The original recipe that I found was made in a 9×13, and the traditional recipe calls for a crumble topping.  I was wanting to use my bundt pan,  because I love the look of it so much more.   So I skipped the crumb topping and added some chopped walnuts to the mix. I drizzled it with the brown butter glaze, but I added some more fall spice to it.  This coffee cake was a hit!
