Pumpkin Bread with Streusel Topping

I have been procrastinating on making any pumpkin flavored foods because I have not wanted to admit that Fall is officially here. The funny thing is I really love Fall!! The air is crisp, the tree colors are gorgeous, the mountains are picturesquely dusted with snow and the Fall themed foods are readily available wherever I go! What isn't there to like about Fall? Oh, that's right...winter. Too often I let the dredge of winter rob my joy of Fall, but not this year! I am diving into Fall and enjoying it!

Now watch it will snow tonight ;) haha.

In order to dive into Fall, I need to taste pumpkin. Pumpkin bread, Pumpkin Cookies, Pumpkin Pasta, Pumpkin beer, Pumpkin beer cheese dip & anything else Pumpkin I haven't though about yet. This bread fits the bill! This Pumpkin Streusel Bread is my 'go to' for Pumpkin Bread and has been for years. I made a loaf last night and there is one piece left less than 24 hours later. I would hate to make that last piece sit there alone...

Pro Tip:

Make a double batch! This bread is THAT GOOD.


  • 1/2 cup butter slightly melted

  • 1 cup dark brown sugar - not packed

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree (the puree, NOT pumpkin pie filling)

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tsp & 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves

  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger

  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


I am not a mix separate time of gal when it comes to baking so the process is easy! Mix all ingredients in bowl and stir! :) Place dough in a greased pan and top with streusel. Bake for 45-50minutes (I do 50min) at 350 degrees.

This is how the streusel will look before baking.

Ingredients for Streusel:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup (loose & slightly overflowing) brown sugar

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

  • 6 tablespoons butter slightly melted


In a bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon & pumpkin pie spice. Add the butter and use your fingers to mix the butter into the flour until a crumble forms. Pour streusel on top of dough and lightly press into dough.
