Peanut Butter Coffee Cake w/Chocolate Swirl

Baked goodies with peanut butter are totally awesome! I love peanut butter cupcakes, peanut butter frosting, and peanut butter cookies. It was time to take a break from the Fall baking and make something with peanut butter...just because. The chocolate swirl is really just sugar mixed with cocoa powder. Instead of cinnamon sugar, think of it as chocolate sugar.

Brown Sugar Swirl Coffee Cake w/Brown Sugar Icing

I've always liked a simple brown sugar streusel topping on a coffee cake. It's kind of hard to have a streusel topping on a bundt cake, so I thought I would move the streusel to the center and make a swirl. The icing is my second brown sugar icing recipe. For this one, I used dark brown sugar because I think it has a richer flavor than light brown sugar, but go ahead and use whichever one you have.

Buttermilk Vanilla Coffee Cake w/Pumpkin Spice Icing

The cake itself is a very basic vanilla buttermilk coffee cake. In fact, I would go so far as to say that it can be the basis for many coffee cake creations. Perhaps I'll give it it's own post. At any rate, I wanted the pumpkin flavor to come from the icing instead of the cake. This would be a wonderful treat to have with that pumpkin spice latte you've been craving.
