  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cups unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cups sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 2 cups pumpkin, canned
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt


  • 1
    Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  • 2
    Cube cold butter and then cut butter into flour mixture using fingers until it's in pea-sized lumps.
  • 3
    Reserve 3/4 Cup of the mixture for a topping later.
  • 4
    In a separate bowl, combine sour cream, eggs, and vanilla. Then stir that into the flour-butter mixture. Stir together until it forms a loose dough.
  • 5
    Pack loose dough into a springform pan. Try to get an even thickness on the bottom and press the dough about 1 inch up the sides. If your fingers are sticking badly to the dough, use plastic wrap to help shape it.
  • 6
    In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer to mix together cream cheese, pumpkin, eggs, sugar, and spices. Pour pumpkin mixture into the coffee cake shell.
  • 7
    Sprinkle on reserved crumb for a topping.
  • 8
    Bake coffee cake at 350°F for 55-60 minutes until center is set and it's browned around the edges.
  • 9
    Remove and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove the cake from the springform pan and serve or let cool to room temperature and store in the fridge!

More About This Recipe

  • What’s better than a warm slice of coffee cake on a crisp fall day? Seriously. Do you know the answer? I do. The answer is a warm slice of coffee cake that’s been filled with a creamy pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin Pie Coffee Cake is as good, if not better, than you are thinking it might be. The good news is that it’s also a lot easier to make than you might think. One note on this: Be sure to purchase 100% pumpkin. Don’t get the canned pumpkin pie filling. Slicing into this pumpkin pie coffee cake is a real treat. It’s fun to see this nice thick layer of pumpkin custard on top of a soft and rich coffee cake. This will be no surprise to you, but this is really good with a cup of coffee or tea. It’s equally good with a scoop of ice cream. Heck. You could probably get away with eating it for breakfast!
