Pumpkin Spice Coffee Cake

In the past, I have found myself searching for desserts made with pumpkin. I always seemed to run into the same things over and over….pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin muffins, and of course,  pumpkin pie. I have made all of these things, and love them all, but my creative side wanted something different, a pumpkiny dessert with unique goodness!

I can only hope when I’m creating that all of my precious organic ingredients don’t have the fate of the trash can! ( It’s happened many times…)

I thought about how my husband loved coffee cake….and coffee….and oh yeah sweets in general  (that’s why superfood raw desserts like three layer raw dessert is a perfect break to all the flour, and sugar) I knew if this would turn out, it would be right up his alley!

I have to say it turned out beautifully moist, layered with walnut crumble, and bursting with fall flavors! I have to add that I didn’t even pull the mixer out for this! Yep…. just how I like it!
