The Best Pumpkin Bread

This Pumpkin Bread is LOADED with a streusel topping. My favorite! If you’d like less streusel topping, halve the ingredients.

  • Total Time: 1 hour 45 minutes
  • Yield: 9 servings 1x



For the Bread

1 1/2 cups (120g) All-purpose Flour

1 cup sugar

1 cup pumpkin puree

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup water

2 eggs, beaten

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp allspice

For the Streusel

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup butter (cold)

1/4 cup chopped nuts


1.Preheat your oven to 350 F.

2. In a small bowl add your streusel topping ingredients, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, butter, and chopped nuts.

3. Work it together with your hands, squishing the butter into the flour until it comes together into a crumbly texture.

4. Keep the butter cold, so put this into the fridge while you prepare your bread mixture.

5. In a large bowl sift together flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda. Whisk to combine.

6. Add to the bowl the pumpkin puree, vegetable oil, beaten eggs, water, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice.

7. Whisk together gently, try not to overmix. If you’re adding inclusions (nuts etc.) Fold these in after mixing.

8. Pour the mixture into a greased 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.

9. Remove streusel from the fridge and spread evenly over the top of your bread mixture.

10. Bake for 90 minutes uncovered. Cool for 15-30 minutes before cutting and serving.
