Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

Oh! My! Goodness!!  I saw this recipe recently in the Dallas Morning News and they gave the recipe source from www.  This cake is perfect for a meal ending, for breakfast or with a cup of coffee or tea.  My dear darling gave it a "5-Star"!!!  I hope you try it this holiday season.

 I'm having this with a cup of Twinings Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea.
1/3 cup water
1 (15-oz) can pure pumpkin
2 eggs
1 T. vanilla
2 t. pumpkin pie spice
1 (18-oz.) box yellow cake mix
1 t. baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
4 T. butter, melted
1/3 cup chopped  walnuts (I used pecans and more like 1/2 cup)
Brown Sugar Glaze (recipe follows)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a 9 x 13-inch pan with butter.

In a large bowl mix together the water pumpkin, eggs, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice until well combined.  Add the cake mix and baking soda and mix until just combined.  Pour batter into prepared pan.

In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour, melted butter and nuts.  Use your fingers to sprinkle mixture over the top of the cake.  Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Poke holes in the top of the cake with a toothpick.  Pour warm glaze over the cake, making sure to cover all surfaces.  Serve cake warm or at room temperature.

Brown Sugar Glaze:  (make while cake is baking)

In a saucepan, combine 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1 t. vanilla and 1/4 cup heavy cream.  Bring to a simmer.  Remove from heat and stir until all sugar is dissolved.
