Streusel Topped Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Bread The Charm of Home
This time of year I always enjoy making pumpkin bread for the kids.  When they were little they loved it.  Pumpkin is a super food too, so it is good for you. 

Pumpkin Bread: The Charm of Home
Ingredients:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 1/2 cup sifted all purpose flour (I used 1/2 of this amount whole wheat)
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

Streusel Topping: optional (I added this to make it appeal to teenagers)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup butter


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease and flour 8x 5-inch loaf pan.  Beat sugar with oil till blended.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Continue beating until light and fluffy.  Then mix in pumpkin on low speed.  Add in dry ingredients on low speed and mix well. Pour into prepared pan.  For streusel topping mix till crumb texture with a pastry cutter.  Then spread topping over entire loaf.  Bake 60 minutes or until 
toothpick comes out clean.  Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan and finish cooling.

Enjoy!

  3. Sherry,

    Your pumpkin bread looks and sounds very good and I like the streusel topping. I was at a meeting today and a topic of conversation came up about the benefits of pumpkin. I will definitely be making this soon. Thank you for sharing. I am making a copy.

  17. This was a disaster for me. It was way too much for the loaf pan once it rose and the topping bubbled. It mad a mess of my oven and was dense.

    1. Susan,
      I am so sorry to hear you had a time of it with this recipe. I have made it for years and have not had that experience. I always make all of the recipes I post and if they don't work they don't get published. I made eggnog scones today and they are not going to get published! :( They still tasted good though.

  18. I just took this out of the oven. Haven't gotten to try the actual bread but I have been nibbling on the crumb topping. Oh. My. Word. I could eat a whole pan of just that! Can't wait to try the bread!

  20. I know there is a few different kinds od canned pumpkin, Is this the pie filling, Pumpkin pack?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Debi,
    It is just regular canned pumpkin.

    Sherry

  22. Sorry to question again, would that be the one that says 100 percent pure pumpkin?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yes. I use 100% pure pumpkin. Nothing in it but pumpkin puree in a can.

  24. I was just wondering if I could substitute pumpkin pie spice. I am out of nutmeg and I just got home from the store!

    ReplyDelete
  25. MamaP,
    It looks like pumpkin pie spice also includes ginger. Even though ginger isn't in this recipe, I think adding 11/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice would work out just fine. I would make it like that and then make a note in my recipe so then next time I would remember how I did it. LOL!

  26. Made your Japanese fruit pie yesterday and also this pumpkin bread. Both were delicious! The streusel made all the difference. I love baking desserts with Fall inspired ones being my favorite. Thank you for the posts and I will be trying some of your other recipes!

  29. How long would I bake if I were to use a muffin tin instead of a loaf pan?

    ReplyDelete
  30. The standard for baking muffins Destiny is 20 minutes. Check them with a toothpick and see that it comes out clean. That should work.

  31. This comes out awesome!! I skip the cloves and don't sift the flour. I make a double batch because the family loves it!! Thanks for posting!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Very good and moist. I substitute butter for the vegetable oil for the pumpkin bread and it turned out great and I love the strudel topping!

    ReplyDelete
  33. This is awesome! A good variation for the next time I make it is adding some dried cranberries and maybe walnuts to the topping. Delish!!!

  34. Anyone ever tried adding chocolate chips to it?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Kelcie, Chocolate chips sound great. Just toss them in flour or cocoa so they don't sink in the batter. I learned that the hard way.:)

  43. Fantastic recipe - a real stand out. I didn't have ground cloves and used 1.5 tsp of a cinnamon/pumpkin pie spice mixture. Otherwise followed the directions. So good!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. For the topping, are you supposed to melt the butter first and then mix the dry ingredients?

    ReplyDelete
  45. For the crumb topping you mix the dry ingredients (flour and sugar) and then cut in the butter mixing it until it is a crumbly texture.
