Pumpkin Bread with crumb topping
Not only is pumpkin bread perfect on it’s own but when you top it with a sweet, crunchy streusel topping, it takes it to another level!
What is a streusel topping?
It’s a mixture, made from butter, flour, and sugar, that creates a sweet and crunchy texture when baked on.
Basically, it makes everything it tops, BETTER. So let’s make perfect pumpkin bread, even tastier!
This super moist pumpkin bread starts with a cake mix. Not just any plain cake mix, a spice cake mix.
Pumpkin bread ingredients
- Spice Cake Mix
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Pumpkin Puree
- Almond/Vanilla Extract
The great thing about this recipe is that it uses the whole can of pumpkin puree. No leftover pumpkin to worry about!
Streusel topping ingredients
- Brown Sugar
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
Mix these ingredients together to form a crumbly mixture and then sprinkle on top of your bread batter.
How to make moist pumpkin bread from scratch
STEP ONE: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×5 loaf pan.
STEP TWO: In a large bowl, combine the bread ingredients until just mixed. Pour into the greased loaf pan.
STEP THREE: In a different bowl, combine the streusel topping ingredients until you get a crumbly consistency. Evenly sprinkle on top of the bread batter.
STEP FOUR: Place in the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the top is golden brown.
STEP FIVE: While the pumpkin bread is cooling, whisk together the ingredients for the glaze in a bowl until smooth. Drizzle with glaze, slice, and enjoy!

Can I store this bread?
Yes, an airtight container will keep this bread fresh for up to 5 days. You can also refrigerate it in an airtight container for up to 5 days. (it never lasts that long for my family!)
Can I freeze this bread?
Yes, you can freeze this bread once it has been baked, the best idea is to not glaze it before freezing.
Wrap the bread in plastic wrap tightly to keep air from getting to it and then place in an airtight container to freeze for up to three months.
Can I bake this in a different pan?
Yes, you could bake this in an 8X8 square pan, or up to a 9×13 pan, it will be thinner the larger pan you use.
Can I make muffins with this recipe?
Yes, you can easily turn this into muffins! The baking time will be much shorter, so keep an eye on the muffins. I would start with a 12 minute baking time and go from there.
Can I use pumpkin pie mix instead of pumpkin puree?
You could, but it will change the flavor and consistency. Pumpkin pie mix has spices and additional liquid ingredients that would make your batter very thin.
You would have to adjust the amount of “pumpkin” you add.
Can I use a sugar substitute in the topping?
Yes, you can use whichever sugar substitute you usually use for granulated sugar, but you need to make sure it is granulated and is not a powder.
Tips for No Leftovers
- Wrap the pumpkin bread in foil soon after coming out of the oven, it will keep the moisture in.
- If you are a temperature nerd, you can check if your pumpkin bread is done when the internal temperature is between 190-200F.
- You can use homemade pumpkin puree if desired.
- Remember to grease your muffin tin or use cupcake liners.
This pumpkin streusel quick bread is amazing for breakfast, snack, or a dessert. Serve with honey butter or maple syrup!
