Expert Tips

This cake is the perfect solution for people who find the traditional pumpkin pie too "squashy" tasting. Canned pumpkin adds moisture, tenderness and subtle flavor, but the flavor of orange gives the cake a different character altogether.

Set the tone for Thanksgiving from the get-go: serve wedges of Pumpkin-Date Coffee Cake for breakfast with hot coffee or tea.
