The pumpkin recipe I have for you today is a wonderful pumpkin coffee cake for one. It’s a wonderful coffee cake recipe with the flavors of fall in every single bite.

Coffee Cake

This mini pumpkin coffee cake is loaded with pumpkin puree, a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and a handful of other ingredients.

I topped the cake with a lovely streusel topping which added a nice buttery crunch to each bite.

For the streusel topping, I mixed together a little brown sugar, a touch of granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, and softened butter.

You’ll notice in the recipe, I use 1 egg yolk instead of a whole egg.  Please don’t throw the egg white away. Save it to add to your scrambled eggs the next morning or, better yet save it to use to make meringues.

What To Do With The Leftover Pumpkin

You can use a little of the leftover canned pumpkin in this small batch Pumpkin Spice Granola, a Pumpkin Cheesecake For One, or a delightful Pumpkin Pie For One.

You can also store pumpkin puree in the refrigerator and it will last a few days.

Pumpkin puree freezes well and can be stored in an airtight container or portioned into small ziplock bags, in the amount you might use in another recipe. It will keep well in the freezer for 3 months.

  1. This looks so good! I love pumpkin coffee cake, but don’t need a whole cake sitting around the house. This is the perfect solution! Could you make this in a mug in the microwave? Thank you!


      1. I tried this in the microwave today and it was perfect! I used a 16 ounce mug and microwaved for 3 minutes in a 900 watt microwave. The cake was so delicious and moist! Thank you so much for this recipe! I will definitely be making this again.

  2. This sounds great. One question, what did you do with the rest of the canned pumpkin?
    How do you save it? Thanks.

    1. Hi Connie,
      You can use a little of the leftover canned pumpkin in this small batch Pumpkin Spice Granola (https://onedishkitchen.com/small-batch-pumpkin-spice-granola/), a Pumpkin Cheesecake For One (https://onedishkitchen.com/no-bake-pumpkin-cheesecake-for-one/), or a delightful Pumpkin Pie For One (https://onedishkitchen.com/pumpkin-pie-for-one/). You can also store pumpkin puree in the refrigerator and it will last a few days. Pumpkin puree freezes well and can be stored in an airtight container or portioned into small ziplock bags, in the amount you might use in another recipe. It will keep well in the freezer for 3 months.
