Creating This Pumpkin Coffee Cake Recipe

We love sweets — like coffee cakes and muffins — for breakfast in our house.

I especially love baking breakfast treats during the fall and winter months when I don’t mind turning on the oven in the mornings to warm the downstairs up a bit. They’re so warm and cozy, especially on a cold and windy day like today, and make the house smell so nice.

One of our new favorite quick treats for breakfast or even for a little after dinner snack is this Pumpkin Streusel Coffee Cake.

With the use of Bisquick, this pumpkin coffee cake recipe is really simple to prepare and perfect for the busy holiday season when you are wanting something a little special for breakfast but you don’t want to wake up three hours before everyone else to prepare it.

This Bisquick coffee cake can even be made ahead to save you time in the morning. That way, you can spend more time with your family and less time in the kitchen!

  5. Spread mixture into a parchment paper-lined 9×9-inch pan. Sprinkle the top with the prepared streusel mixture.

The above is simply a quick summary of this recipe. Check out the free printable card at the bottom of this post for all the detailed instructions.

How to Store Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Leftover coffee cake should be covered with foil and stored at room temperature. It will last up to 4 days.

Can Coffee Cake Be Frozen?

Yes, this pumpkin streusel coffee cake freezes incredibly well! I recommend freezing it without the toffee bits on top, if possible.

Store the coffee cake in a freezer bag or freezer-safe container for up to 3 months. When ready to eat, set on the counter to thaw.

Can This Recipe Be Made Gluten-Free?

I imagine so, yes! However, I’ve only made this recipe as written so I can’t say for sure.

Bisquick does make a gluten-free baking blend though, so I recommend starting there. If you successfully make this recipe gluten-free, please leave me a comment below letting me know how it turns out!

Can This Recipe Be Doubled?

Yes, you’re welcome to double this recipe and bake it in a 9×13-inch baking dish. The bake time may need to be increased slightly.

Tips for the Best Pumpkin Coffee Cake

  • Note that this recipe calls for pure pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling. Leftover pumpkin puree can be used in one of these pumpkin recipes, or it can be frozen.
  • I recommend lining your pan with parchment paper prior to adding the batter. I’ve written a full post on how to line pans with parchment paper, if you need help.
  • If you’d like to prepare the pumpkin spice coffee cake in advance, follow all of the steps except adding the English toffee. When ready to serve, reheat each piece for 10 – 15 seconds in the microwave and then sprinkle with toffee.
