Pumpkin Coffee Cake.

I had never been much of a baker before I went to college and didn't have a kitchen. Now, whenever I am home, I have an overwhelming desire to bake all of the things I have pinned on pinterest. This is my first full-fledged baking post. Enjoy! 

How to make the most amazing Pumpkin Coffee Cake:
 You will need water, pureed pumpkin (15oz), 2 whole eggs, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, 1 box yellow cake mix, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cups flour, 1/3 cups walnuts (chopped, I chose not to include them), 4 tablespoons butter (melted), 1/4 cups granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream

preheat oven to 350F
in a large bowl, mix together the water, pumpkin, 1 tablespoon of vanilla, pumpkin pie spice and eggs until combined

add the cake mix and baking soda and mix until just combined 

Grease a 9x13 pan with butter and pout the batter into the pan

In a small bowl, mix together the 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, walnuts, and melted butter
 use your fingers to sprinkle over top of the cake, bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
and now for the glaze...combine the other 1/2 cup brown sugar, granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and heavy cream in a saucepan. bring to a simmer. remove from heat and stir until all sugar is dissolved.

and now we wait...
when cake is finished, poke holes in the top with a toothpick then pour the glaze over the cake. cover all surfaces. enjoy warm or at room temperature by the fire with a cup of coffee.
