Cinnamon Swirled Glazed Pumpkin Coffee Cake
Cinnamon Swirled Glazed Pumpkin Coffee Cake is a sophisticated and elegant blend of flavors that come together beautifully in this cake. Cinnamon is always an enticing spice, rich and lightly peppery that works well with the subtler taste of pumpkin. This cake combines four separate parts to create a great complement and contrast of flavors and textures. The cake gets a cinnamon swirl, then a crumb is added to bring lovely crunch, and finally a glaze that adds extra sweetness to this cake.
Coffee cake comes down from the tradition of a honey cake, a popular cake made in many countries. The tradition was to serve a bit of the cake with coffee or tea, when friends dropped by. Often the cake was served at breakfast, and so this tradition of a lightly sweet cake grew and developed in to the modern day version of the coffee cake. Today, most coffee cake remains slightly less sweet than a traditional cake. Generally, coffee cake is also shaped as a Bundt cake, although pan cakes are often also served as coffee cakes. Coffee cakes often seem to be made from cinnamon and honey and similar flavors rather than say, from chocolate. That likely is because of the history of the cake coming from honey cakes and not chocolate. Either way, a coffee cake is a lovely cake intended to be eaten at breakfast or when ever you take a break.
This is an easy recipe even with the four parts that make it up. Just read the recipe over carefully so you understand what each part does and where it goes, and this cake will be quick and simple to pull together. The final glaze could be considered optional, if you wish to make some thing that is less sweet. Enjoy this Cinnamon Swirled Glazed Pumpkin Coffee Cake soon. Your family will appreciate it.
