Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze Recipe

Nothing beats a tasty pumpkin treat in the Fall!  I couldn’t wait until it started cooling down before I started whipping out the pumpkin recipes.  We liked this cake so much, we ended up eating it straight from the pan!  What can I say?  We love our pumpkin!

    This sounds amazing, but I live in SE Asia where I cannot always get boxed cake mixes, or if I find them they are outrageously expensive and I can't justify spending the money! Have you ever made it from scratch and, if so, can you share the recipe please? Thank you so much!!!

    Just made this for my family to enjoy over the weekend and it turned out great! Easy recipe, tastes delicious and looks impressive when cut up into squares! I did end up cooking it a bit longer (about 35 minutes) and added some chopped pecans on top. Will definitely make this again - it would be a perfect make-ahead breakfast/snack for Thanksgiving!
