Pumpkin Pie Coffeecake

This Pumpkin Pie Coffeecake is like a pumpkin pie layered inside a spice cake. There’s no coffee cake moister or pumpkinier.


Our minivan of five has been on a fall quest to run wild and crazy – um, hike – at as many state parks as we can, while we can.

With the unusually mellow fall so far, there’s just no excuse not to put All the Work on the back burner and procrastinate with a capital P.

Because all the Twin Citians know we gotta soak up the sunshine before the freezing black hole comes knocking.

Likewise, we have to carpe diem with pumpkins while fall is still teeming with orange…


Let’s just lay it all out. I am a sucker for moist cake. Especially in the morning and with coffee.

Hubby is a huge pumpkin pie fan. Especially after dinner.

The Littles dig anything in the realm of Bressert. Especially anytime.


This Pumpkin Pie Coffeecake has all three bases covered. And brings it in for a home run.

It’s a moist moist moist cake. Somewhere in there, a pumpkin pie layer shows itself off. It dares us not to attack it with a fork.

All of us quickly lost that dare.


The entire thing is blanketed with a crispy layer of fall-spiked streusel.

I almost drizzled on a simple spice glaze. But I decided to just sprinkle on some powder power and let Miss Pumpkin have her spotlight.

And shine, she does.


Here’s to days too beautiful not to procrastinate.

For the Streusel Topping:

For the Pumpkin Filling:

For the Cake:


  • Make the Streusel ahead: Combine all streusel ingredients in a bowl and use clean fingers or a pastry cutter to work the mixture into texture of chunky damp sand. There should be bits and pieces of butter/nut chunks still present. Cover and chill until ready to use.
  • Make the Pumpkin Filling: In a bowl, whisk together the filling ingredients until well incorporated and smooth. Set aside.
  • Make the Cake: Grease a 9x13 baking pan and preheat oven to 325F with rack on lower middle position. Set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream the butter and and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating to combine in between. Add vanilla and beat to combine. Add yogurt and beat just until incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl, combine all dry cake ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder) and whisk to combine well. Using a rubber spatula, fold dry flour mixture with the egg/yogurt mixture just until combined; don't over mix.
  • Spread at least half of the cake batter into prepared cake pan, smoothing out to corners evenly. Spread pumpkin filing evenly over this (will be thick; it's ok if a little gets combined with batter. I use damp fingers if spatula is sticky.) Spread remaining cake batter over the pumpkin filling. It might be a thin layer, which is ok. Sprinkle streusel topping evenly over top of entire cake.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes or just until a toothpick inserted in the cake portion of the center comes out almost clean. Let cool completely before cutting.


This cake is easier to cut after its been chilled. If you have time, cover and chill before serving. We think it tastes best chilled, too 🙂

We love pumpkin bresserts, and if you try these, you’ll likely become a fan:

  1. Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes. Oh my oh my oh my. So delicious, pretty, and fall-perfect.

  1. Pumpkin Churros are easy and fun! Sure, they’re a little bit fried…but once a fall, it’s worth the fun!


  1. Pumpkin Spice Trifle. So so easy, it’s a little embarrassing, but not really. Because your guests will devour this, especially if serve it with a cup of decaf after dinner.

    Hi, there! My name is Milissa and I also have a food blog, though nothing as impressive as yours! I came across this recipe while searching all things pumpkin and breakfast-y, and I nearly drooled all over my computer screen;) We eat a mostly plant-based diet, so I am at this very moment baking up a “veganized” version of this coffee cake. Provided it turns out as I’m hoping, my plan is to post photos of it along with my tweaked version of your recipe in a post dedicated to fall and back-to-school. I will absolutely give you credit for the original recipe and provide a link to it, as well. Thanks for this amazing recipe!!

    The cake batter was quite thick, the pumpkin filling was not. I could not spread on top of the pumpkin. Hope it tastes ok.

    Did you leave out some liquid in the cake portion, I could hardly spread it, it was more like dough than batter. The pumpkin layer was fine, not to thick.
