Flo's Cakes - Sour Cream Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Just yesterday I was making Flo's Lemon Raspberry Coffee Cake. This was the third time I made this recipe since I keep sharing it with others or taking it to a fellowship meal so there is barely any left for us! I was also cooking the first pumpkin of the season so had fall food on my mind. I started thinking about coffee cake infused with pumpkin and spice and wondering if Flo had a pumpkin coffee cake. 

Imagine my delight to check my email today and find this recipe from Flo. Mind reader! I can't wait to try it. I'm skipping out of my blogging vacation (I will be back to blogging! Promise. When I put away my pressure canner...)  so that you can try it too.

Thanks Flo, for delighting our taste buds again.

Sour Cream Pumpkin Coffee Cake

½ cup butter
¾ cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup sour cream

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup butter
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup chopped nuts

1 ¾ cup pumpkin (solid pack)
1 slightly beaten egg
cup sugar
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Preheat oven to 325˚. Grease a 9x13 pan. Make streusel; set aside. Cream butter, sugar, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice. Add eggs. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder and baking soda; add to butter mixture alternately with sour cream. In another bowl, combine pumpkin, egg, sugar and pie spice. Spoon half of batter into pan and spread to edges of pan. Sprinkle half of streusel over batter. Spread pumpkin mixture over streusel. Carefully spread remaining batter over pumpkin mixture and sprinkle remaining streusel over remaining batter over pumpkin mixture and sprinkle remaining streusel over top. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
