Pumpkin Bread with Streusel Topping

Pumpkin Bread with Streusel Topping

Moist, delicious, full of pumpkin flavour, and topped with a brown sugar streusel. This Pumpkin Bread with Streusel Topping is the best pumpkin bread, perfect for Fall baking.

The recipe is so easy to make. One thing you want to be careful of is to add pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling. You can find pumpkin puree in the baking aisle at the grocery store it is unsweetened and does not contain spices.

This bread is great fresh out of the oven but I find it tastes even better the second day!

Isn’t it funny how 15C in April seems so hot and 15C in September feels so cold? It is definitely starting to feeling like Fall in Ontario. I made this Pumpkin Bread with Streusel last week but have been incredibly busy and finally getting time to write it up now. We had brought this bread up to the cottage to share with our family and they all agreed it was wonderful.

My two toddlers have been having an off day and nothing at home seemed to make them happy. So we went on a walk to our neighbourhood Tim Hortons, got some timbits and a pumpkin spice latte for mama. The weather sure felt like Fall; grey, slightly chilling, and mist in the air. My kids didn’t seem to mind at all. After finishing our walk they ate their timbits and went went down for a nap. I now get to enjoy my PSL in peace.

How To Make the Pumpkin Bread

Preheat oven to oven to 350F. Grease and line a loaf pan with parchment paper. You wan to make sure the parchment paper hangs out a bit around the long edges so the loaf so you can easily remove the bread.

Pumpkin Bread Batter

In a medium sized bowl whisk together flour, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large sized bowl combine the eggs, brown sugar, white sugar, oil, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, and milk. Be sure the ingredients are mixed well.

Add the dry ingredients into the wet and fold together using a rubber spatula. You want to be careful not to over mix. Once you can no longer see any flour stop mixing. Pour batter into your lined loaf pan.

Streusel Topping

In a medium sized bowl whisk together white sugar, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Once blended add in the melted butter and mix until a crumble texture is formed.

Add the streusel topping on top of the loaf batter. Bake for 65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the bread comes out clean. Allow loaf to cool to room temperature before removing it from the pan.

Storing the Bread

This bread keeps amazingly, I find it’s even tastier on the second day! Bread should be kept at room temperature in an airtight container, wrapped in plastic wrap, or (my favourite way to store things) in a large zip lock bag. Bread keep well for 3 days after baking.

    Easiest dessert bread I have ever made for scratch! No need to set butter out before hand to bring to room temp. Super delicious, the cinnamon streusel on top is sweet, crunchy and the perfect way to top it off. The recipe is also very easy to follow. This is definitely one of my favorites!
