Ingredient Notes

Pumpkin puree. Make sure to use pure canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix) in this coffee cake recipe.

Maple flavoring. Also called imitation maple extract, this ingredient gives the glaze its signature maple flavor. You can use real maple extract if you prefer.

Kosher salt. I use this coarser salt in all of my baking and cooking. Find out why.

Easy Instructions

Making pumpkin streusel coffee cake is easier than you might think!

Just mix together the batter and pour it into a baking dish. Sprinkle the streusel topping over the batter and bake.

Whisk together the ingredients for the maple glaze. Once the cake is cooled, pour the glaze over the whole thing.

It’s pumpkin maple bliss!

Tips and Tricks

  • Line your baking pan with parchment paper before adding the batter. Easy clean up and no sticking!
  • Let the glaze set for 30 minutes before cutting the cake. It settles beautifully onto the cake for a perfect consistency and presentation.
  • Store leftovers in a sealed container at room temperature. Enjoy within 3 days for best results.
  • Serve with freshly brewed coffee, tea or a Brown Sugar Latte!

Recipe FAQs

Can this coffee cake be made in a tube or bundt pan?

We tested this recipe in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Other cake pan sizes and shapes can be used, but you will need to adjust the baking time accordingly.

I only have salted butter. Can I still make this pumpkin coffee cake recipe?

You can use salted butter in this recipe if that’s what you have. I would reduce the added kosher salt in the recipe to 1/4 teaspoon.

Can I use maple syrup instead of maple flavoring?

No, maple syrup can’t be substituted for the maple flavoring. It has a less concentrated flavor plus natural sugars that would affect the taste and consistency of your glaze.
