pumpkin spice streusel bread


Pumpkin spice streusel bread is a fall classic, and it’s easy to see why: warming spices and plenty of pumpkin make for one cozy and comforting pumpkin bread that’s equally welcome at breakfast with a steaming latte, or sliced thinly and devoured by the fire as a midnight snack!

Pumpkin Spice Streusel Bread

Add an irresistible spiced streusel (that doubles as both a ribbon throughout the bread and topping), and you instantly elevate the classic pumpkin bread to new heights!

The Best Pumpkin Bread Recipe

For the best pumpkin bread, I use my own spice blend of warming cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg. The spices are incorporated in both the streusel and the pumpkin batter for a double dose of spice flavor! Pure pumpkin, milk, and coconut oil give this bread a moist and tender crumb.

I love this bread unadorned; it’s also delicious enjoyed with mascarpone or a drizzle of vanilla butter glaze. Be sure to add this gem of a bread to your fall baking list!

Streusel Ribbon & Topping

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • 1/8 tsp ginger
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Pumpkin Spice Bread

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 cups pure pumpkin
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk, at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten, at room temperature
  • 3 Tbsp melted coconut oil (or vegetable oil)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang around the edges; spray lightly with nonstick spray.
  2. For the streusel ribbon and topping, combine sugars, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, flour, and pecans in a small bowl. Add melted butter and mix in with a fork until completely incorporated and streusel is crumbly. Chill until ready to use.
  3. For the pumpkin spice bread, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Combine pumpkin, sugar, milk, eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla in a medium bowl; add to flour mixture and fold in just until combined.
  4. Spoon half of the batter into prepared pan and smooth with an offset spatula; sprinkle with 3 tablespoons chilled streusel. Spoon remaining batter into pan and smooth with an offset spatula. Tap pan sharply to reduce air bubbles and sprinkle with remaining streusel.
  5. Bake for 60 minutes or until bread is golden, springs back to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes before using the parchment overhang to carefully lift bread from pan; cool completely on wire rack.
