this delicious pumpkin bread is melt-in-your-mouth tender with a buttery soft brown sugar streusel. it’s perfect any time of day and a wonderful way to ring in pumpkin season!



For the Bread:

  • Recipe from Once Upon a Chef
  • The only changes I made were to nix the nutmeg and cloves and instead sub in 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • Optional add-in: 1 cup chocolate chips (more or less as desired)

For the Streusel:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oatmeal
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoon crushed walnuts
  • 8 tablespoons room temperature butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F and set an oven rack in the middle position. Generously grease two 8 x 4-inch loaf pans with butter and dust with flour.
  2. Combine streusel ingredients in a bowl until a chunky crumb forms.  Set aside.
  3. Combine bread ingredients according to recipe instructions
  4. After dividing batter into loaf pans, top both loaves with streusel pressing it down into the batter gently to ensure it adheres during baking.
  5. Bake for 65-75 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.  Allow loaves to cool for 10 – 15 minutes in the pan then carefully turn out and allow to finish cooling on a wire rack.
