Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Cake

Yep, another pumpkin recipe! I just love baking with it! So delicious and comforting this time of year πŸ™‚ I originally wanted to make a coffee cake-like cake, however, I’ve made so many coffee cakes and posted those recipes on here, this one just spoke to me! Let me say, this cake is very VERY sweet. Cinnamon roll times 2, sweet. So if you want it for breakfast, go for it,Β  but it is definitely more of a dessert in my opinion, and that’s saying something πŸ˜‰

So get those ovens on, and here we go…

What you will need:

13 x 9 inch bake dish, greased

For the batter:

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves (or nutmeg)
1 cup milk
2 large eggs
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, melted

For the filling:

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon

For the glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar
2-3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and cloves (or nutmeg). Stir in milk, eggs, pumpkin and vanilla until combined. Stir in melted butter. Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly.

In another bowl, stir together all filling ingredients until combined. Drop by spoonfulls over the cake batter and swirl with a knife. Bake for about 30 minutes.

When the cake comes out of the oven, mix together the glaze ingredients. Drizzle over the hot cake. Allow to cool a bit before serving.

Store covered at room temperature. Warm up to serve (optional).
