Week #1 Pumpkin Spice Coffee Cake

Today I'm going to be starting a new series.
Every Friday this fall, I will be sharing a delicious dessert recipe
featuring my all-time fall favorite ingredient... PUMPKIN!!!

I had to start a whole new pin board on Pinterest
to organize all of the pumpkin recipes I am pinning these days.
I can hardly wait to try them all!!
And lucky for the freshmen college students in our
Young Life leadership training class, they'll get to be
the taste-testers of the sweet pumpkin-y goodness.

We are kicking off Week #1 of the Pumpkin Fall Fridays series
with some absolutely delicious Pumpkin Spice Coffee Cake!
You think coffee cake - oh that's for breakfast (and believe me, I had a piece for breakfast),
but this cake is so darn sweet and delicious, you can eat it any time!
