Description

The perfect herald of fall. With its streusel crumble and maple glaze this pumpkin bread doesn’t stop at just moist, spicy, and tender. Pay no attention to the length of the ingredient list, many of the ingredients are probably already hanging out in your cupboards and fridge.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE BREAD:
  • ½ cups Butter, Melted
  • ½ cups Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 4 whole Eggs, Lightly Beaten
  • 1-½ cup White Granulated Sugar
  • 1-½ cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • ⅔ cups Buttermilk
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Size) Pumpkin (Not Pumpkin Pie Mix)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 3-½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 2 teaspoons Sea Salt
  • 1-½ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cloves
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • FOR THE STREUSEL:
  • ½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons White Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Dark Brown Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, Slightly Firm
  • FOR THE MAPLE GLAZE:
  • ½ cups Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon Cream
  • ¼ teaspoons Cinnamon

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. Butter three 7×3 inch loaf pans.

FOR THE STREUSEL:
Prepare the streusel topping prior to mixing the bread. In a small bowl mix together the flour, white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in the butter until the crumbles are small pea-size. Set aside.

FOR THE BREAD:
In a large bowl, mix together the melted butter, applesauce, eggs, white sugar, brown sugar, buttermilk, pumpkin puree, and vanilla until well blended. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger.

Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just blended.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pans. Sprinkle with streusel topping on each pan of batter. Put pans in oven and bake for approximately 50 minutes in preheated oven or until a toothpick inserted in center of each loaf comes out clean.

Remove from oven and allow to cool in pans about 10 minutes. Then remove from pans and place the loaves on a cooling rack.

FOR THE MAPLE GLAZE:
While bread is cooling, make the maple glaze. In a small bowl, stir together the powdered sugar, maple syrup, cream, and cinnamon.

When the bread has cooled some, but is still slightly warm, drizzle tops of loaves with with maple glaze.

To store, wrap loaves in plastic wrap or store in an airtight container.

Cook’s Notes: Here are a few alternative ideas for the pumpkin bread.
The bread tastes good plain without the streusel or maple glaze.

If both toppings together seem a bit too much for your sweet tooth, use only one of the toppings.

While the bread is still hot from the oven, poke some holes randomly over the top of it with a wooden skewer and drizzle the maple glaze over the top of the bread. Some of the glaze will seep down into the holes.

This bread puts all other quick breads to shame!! It’s so moist and flavorful!!
I made this over the holidays and the first batch was devoured in less than a day so I had to make a second batch. My husband loved it so much that he ate a whole loaf by himself and requested I make this instead of a cake for his birthday!!

Wonderful. This freezes well too. I wrapped in Saran wrap and foil, froze for a week, and let thaw.at room temperature. It was perfect for Thanksgiving, like I just made it!

This bread is delicious!! The streusel and the glaze pair perfectly with the bread. I added about 1 1/2 cups of chopped pecans to the bread. I think it would also be a nice addition to the streusel topping as well.

Wonderful! Didn’t put the glaze on the top and it was still perfectly sweet.
Easy and delicious!
