Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze - Pinterest Success #4

Sometimes, you just feel like baking something. Sunday morning, I woke up in the mood for coffee cake and remembered this yummy sounding Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze on my Pinterest recipe board. I happened to have some pumpkin and a cake mix in the pantry, so luckily, I had all the ingredients I would need. You can find the original pin here and the recipe here.

With the pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices and the brown sugar scents coming from my oven, I could hardly wait for it to finish baking, so I could try it. What absolutely makes this recipe special, is the brown sugar glaze, poured over the hot, just out of the oven cake. It tasted delicious served warm and was the perfect breakfast for a cold, yet sunny October morning.

Note: Of course with Diabetes I can't have something like this often, but I believe in having what I want, in moderation and practicing portion control. I find I do much better following my diet if I allow myself to eat what I crave now and then. Not the whole bag of M & M's, but just one or two :-)

  15. Vicki, this looks sooo good.
    Now, I have found a sugar substitute, white and brown, that I can't tell the difference from real sugar. I have always HATED sugar subs...that after taste did me in and, plus, you can't bake with them and keep the same texture of sugared desserts....
    THIS one is awesome, I tell ya. It's IDEAL and I don't know if it's in your area or not but you can order it online...I THINK it's hope you will try it because it would be PERFECT in this coffee cake and the brown sugar sub is out of this world.
