What’s pumpkin bread?

It is very similar to banana bread. A soft cake. The recipe is made kinda the same: Wet ingredients are in a bowl. Dry ingredients is sifted in another bowl. Then both are mixed together. It is very popular in the fall season…but it can be baked year-round.

Do I use canned pumpkin puree?

Yup! Go ahead and use canned. Do not use pumpkin pie puree, which has other ingredients to it.

Can I freeze it?

Of course! That is the best reason to bake pumpkin bread (or banana bread). Make it, bake it, let it cool, wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and freeze.

How to make the best ever pumpkin bread:

  • Make my classic oat streusel recipe and set it aside
  • Grease and line a loaf pan
  • Mix wet ingredients in a bowl.
  • Sift dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and stir
  • Mix melted butter, cinnamon, and sugar in a bowl. Add some of the pumpkin batter and stir
  • Pour plain pumpkin batter into a loaf pan
  • Swirl the cinnamon-sugar pumpkin batter on top of the loaf
  • Top with streusel and bake

Can I skip the melted butter-sugar-cinnamon step?

Yes, you can. Then add 1 tbsp ground cinnamon to the pumpkin batter.

How do I test when the pumpkin bread is done?

Insert a tooth pick, or paring knife, into the center of the loaf pan. If it comes out clean, it is done. If not, bake for 5 more minutes and test again.

Can I skip oat streusel?

Yes. It’ll still be delicious.
