I am so ready for fall! Summer was fun, it was hot and beautiful. But I am ready for crisp fall mornings, leaves falling on the ground, and warm baked goodies. I’m a huge fan of all things fall and all things pumpkin.

Actually, last year we went kind of nuts over pumpkin. If you’re looking for treats with pumpkin here’s several pages of pumpkin recipes you may enjoy!

All over my Facebook feed, my Pinterest feed, and my Instagram page fall is trending! I would say I’m not alone in my eagerness for beautiful fall days.

Pumpkin is a staple of the Fall season. I craved a good pumpkin baked dessert to kick off the Football season.  We often host a football party for our friends and family. I keep changing up the goodies to keep our football fans happy.

I also bring this delicious recipe out for a mid winter or early spring treat. It’s a great way to use up your frozen puree or extra canned pumpkin.

This pumpkin coffee cake is  dense and rich with hints of cinnamon and pumpkin flavor.  This coffee cake has nice crunchy bits in the center of the cake. And then there is the Caramel sauce…It’s a very popular Treat.

Pumpkin Coffee Cake Recipe:

This recipe makes a thick rich dessert for a LARGE crowd.  This recipe is perfect for a holiday crowd. If you have just  a few to feed I recommend cutting the recipe in half and using a 9 x 9 greased baking pan. 

For the finishing touch, DON’T forget the caramel sauce! Our Homemade Buttermilk Caramel Sauce is easy to make and adds so much to this recipe. I LOVE this caramel sauce. I poured it all over our Caramel Pecan banana Date bread and everything else edible I could find too. Yum!
