I'll admit it. When I get excited about autumn cooking I'm usually most excited for pumpkin (as you can see from here and here), most likely since that is really the main time of year I get to eat it. But I do recognize there are some people (like my brother for instance) who don't like pumpkin. Here's a yummy, autumn coffee cake that's great for dessert or breakfast with a cup of joe.
