This is seriously the best pumpkin bread recipe EVER. Not only is it incredibly moist, but it also has a crunchy pumpkin spice streusel topping and a sticky maple glaze. It’s also SO easy to make and you don’t even need a mixer!
WHAT YOU NEED unsalted butter all-purpose flour light brown sugar granulated sugar pumpkin pie spice pumpkin puree vegetable oil large eggs vanilla extract milk baking soda cinnamon kosher salt powdered sugar maple syrup
1. In a small bowl, mix together all of the ingredients and place in the fridge while you make the pumpkin bread. Set the streusel aside.
2. Whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, salt) and set aside. 3. Using an electric mixer or a whisk, mix together the sugars, pumpkin, and oil until fully combined. Then mix in the eggs and vanilla. 4. Mix in half of the dry ingredients, then the milk, and then the rest of the dry ingredients until you get a smooth batter.
5. Pour it into the prepared pan and spread it even. 6. Take the streusel out of the fridge and break it up using a knife or fork to create uniform crumps. 7. Completely cover the top of the batter in streusel and bake for 1 hr and 15 minutes or until a toothpick in the middle comes out clean. If it needs more time, keep adding 5 minutes until it’s ready.
8. While the bread bakes, mix together the powdered sugar and maple syrup. 9. With the bread fresh from the oven, pour the glaze on top of the hot loaf. 10. Let the pumpkin bread cool for about 20 minutes then remove from the pan and slice.
