Streusel Topping

Pumpkin Bread


  • First, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line an 8 inch by 4 inch loaf pan with parchment paper that overhangs on the sides.
  • Make streusel topping first. Add all streusel ingredients to a bowl. Use fork or fingers to work butter into dry ingredients, making a crumbly mixture. Place streusel topping in fridge while you make the bread.
  • To make the bread, add eggs, pumpkin purée, molasses, maple syrup and vanilla extract to a mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
  • Then, add in remaining bread ingredients. Stir to combine.
  • Pour bread batter into lined pan. Take streusel topping out of fridge. Sprinkle streusel topping onto bread.
  • Then, lightly place a piece of aluminum foil over top of bread pan.
  • Bake for 40 to 42 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Finally, remove from oven. Allow bread to cool for an hour before slicing and serving.


  • I recommend using an 8 inch by 4 inch bread pan instead of a 9x5.
  • This bread can be made with or without the streusel topping.  The bread won't be very tall without the topping though.
  • Cut butter into small cubes and work with fingers or fork to incorporate butter into streusel topping ingredients.
  • Use pumpkin purée, not pumpkin pie filling.
  • If you do not have pumpkin pie spice, substitute the same amount of cinnamon.
  • Lightly sprinkle streusel topping onto bread before baking.
  • Bake with a piece of aluminum foil over the top of the bread pan.  This prevents the topping from burning.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • This bread may sink a little in the middle due to the streusel topping.  This is normal and the bread still tastes great!
  • Allow bread to cool for about an hour before slicing and serving.  It is soft.
