Pumpkin Coffee Cake & A Giveaway!



Happy Monday everyone!

My kitchen smells wonderful, the little Humble and I just finished sharing our second piece of pumpkin coffee cake drizzled with brown butter icing and I have a cookbook giveaway for my readers. Pretty good way to start my week.

As I mentioned on Friday, I've been baking from fellow blogger Jane Dorian's cookbook: Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms. She was nice enough to give me a copy and then let me post a couple recipes on the blog. Now she has also offered to give away a copy to one of my readers.

How great is that! A person can never have too many cookbooks... or shoes, or blueberry muffins for that matter.

So, I've read the book cover to cover this weekend, no small feat as it is a substantial book for a blogger. It is packed with family friendly recipes, all the comfort foods my husband and I grew up on. All with details on how to make ahead for future use.

If you're interested in the cookbook, just post below with your email address. Jane will pick the winner next Monday (Feb 15th) and then email you for shipping details.



Now lets get onto the coffee cake!



Okay, so I took a few liberties with this cake. I didn't change the recipe, but I baked it in a different pan. The recipe calls for a tube or bunt pan and I used two 8" rounds and... I kinda... sorta... tripled the streusel topping.

Sorry, Jane! I just love the crumb topping on a coffee cake! That is my favorite part! I'm compelled to maximize the ratio of cake to crumbs in any recipe like this. Sane, reasonable people needn't do this, of course.

Also, I added a drizzle of brown butter icing. Why? Because: Brown butter + pumpkin + spices = love. Obviously.

Make Ahead Meals For Busy Mom's Pumpkin Coffee Cake
From Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
15 oz can pumpkin
3 large eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt

Streusel Topping:
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup walnuts, chopped

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray the inside of a tube or bundt pan with nonstick spray; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar on medium speed until well blended. Add the pumpkin and eggs and mix thoroughly. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and salt. Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture. Mix on medium speed until combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Prepare the streusel topping: In a small bowl combine the flour, sugars, cinnamon, melted butter and walnuts. Sprinkle the streusel over the cake batter. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for about 15 minutes. Slide a knife around the pan so the cake doesn't stick when removing it. Invert the cake onto a plate. Then invert the cake onto another plate, so that the streusel is on the top. Cool completely. Cover and store at room temperature.

(For two round cakes: coat two 8-inch rounds with non-stick spray and place a circle of parchment in the bottom. Divide the batter between the two pans, top with the streusel (x3) and bake for approximately 35 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.)

Not So Humble Brown Butter Icing:

1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
whole milk

In a small saucepan, heat the butter over medium low heat until fragrant and the butter solids are golden brown. Pour the butter into the sugar and combine with a whisk. Continue to mix, adding one tablespoon of milk at a time until you have a pourable icing.

Drizzle over the cooled cake, then abandon all dignity and begin stuffing chunks of it into your mouth.

  5. Oh, sweet mother. That looks amazing. Just when I thought I'd had enough of fall/winter baking, you have to post this beauty. I'm also relieved to see that I'm not the only person guilty of tripling the streusel topping portion of a recipe.

    I am in desperate need of a cookbook as I currently.. don't own any. I'm relatively young and new to the whole cooking-real-meals-not-just=heating-things-up portion of my life, but I love it. My laptop, however, does not, and my sticky keys can attest to this (mmm, molten chocolate cake batter).

  20. I love the blog! and I'd love that book, too. If I'm not the lucky winner, I may just have to hunt it down. We prefer to prep our own meals just to be healthier, but I always freeze some, too. That way I can thaw, heat and eat on those nights I just don't have enough time to do it all. Thanks for the chance!

Unfortunately, being a diabetic, it can mainly only be a feast for one's eyes rather than one's taste buds (and the cookbook would only gather fingerprints rather than flour)!

  120. Some collect coins, others s&p shakers, me, I collect cookbooks. I am a 4th generation cookbook hoarder. I have handwritten pages from my great grandmother Lilly tucked into my grandmothers cookbooks that also includes her hand written notes in her Betty Crocker. In addition I have my mother’s Betty Crocker, Joy of Cooking and American International Encyclopedic Cook Book, all with crib notes. I also collect community cookbooks. They are a treasure trove of regional cooking. My sister thought she was so clever to purchase these books new! I have two daughters of my own. As I make notes in my own cookbooks I wonder which girl will be sharing my notes with her daughters, continuing on the hoarding to a sixth generation. I would love to add 'Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms' to my collection. tcynthiat@gmail.com

  124. Im not a mom, nor am i married but i am a college student that loves to cook for my roommates and friends, when I get the time that is. With all the hours in the studio i find myself stuck with only the time for the many delicacies that come from the frozen food isle and when i am lucky, whatever soup i have left from the "bring your bowl" wednesday, the soup dinner i host for my friends every other week. It would be great to have some recipes and tips for ahead of time prep and for the future when i hope to be one of the busy moms.

  129. Just stumbled across your site . . .and read the whole thing, all the while the kids kept asking, "Are you done yet?"
    You have a beautiful site, hard to believe that you have only been blogging for a short while, your site rivals many who have been doing so for a while.
    Thank you for the inspiration, I may have to try macarons again-the last ones looked like fried eggs sunnyside up.
    I too am a cookbook reader/collector, and would love more ideas to make those crazy nights when I need to divide myself in two, move a little smoother.
    Thanks again, I will be back.

  134. You should do some muffin like dark chocolate chip pumpkin with flax seeds and other stuff so it'll be good for the birds and our tummies.

  138. How do you keep the streusel from all falling off? I made this into muffins twice now and the streusel just tends to fall off...I can't imagine making it as the coffee cake and turning it upside down to get it out of the pan. My streusel seems kind of dry even though I followed the recipe - maybe it needs a little more butter?

  139. Touch more butter will help. I also advise using a spring-form pan if you're concerned about the streusel. No inverting needed.

  142. This looks amazing!! I have a question though. If I baked this in a bundt pan I should sprinkle the streusel in the bottom and then pour the batter on top, correct? It wouldn't get soggy or anything would it? I can't wait to try it.

    ReplyDelete
  143. The streusel wouldn't be quite the same baked under the batter, but you can always experiment.
