This decadent pumpkin coffee cake has all the best autumn flavors

What more could you ask for in a delicious fall cake? This cake combines pumpkin, cheesecake and coffee cake all in one delicious dish. The pumpkin cake is the base with a cheesecake swirl throughout and it is all topped with a coffee-cake streusel.

There are three different pumpkin flavors you'll taste when you take a bite into this cake. The first is pumpkin puree which makes the bread ultra-moist. The next is pumpkin spice which seems to heighten all of the flavors and gives that rich pumpkin pie taste to the cake. And finally, there is pumpkin coffee creamer. This coffee creamer does wonders for the cake. It enhances the flavor and brings a type of creaminess to the cake.

This cake may sound difficult or look like it has a lot of ingredients, but it flows well and isn't too hard to make. I think the hardest part is waiting for it to finish cooking. This cake is the perfect treat for fall and you may like it so much that it ends up on your Thanksgiving menu.
