One of my favorite breakfasts growing up was a cinnamon streusel coffee cake, specifically because of the streusel! I thought a delicious pumpkin bread, already full of warm spices, would be a great pairing to a cinnamon streusel that reminded me of my childhood.
Fall is my absolute favorite season! And the arrival of fall means that pumpkin-spice-everything is everywhere. I shared my quick and simple recipe for how to make your own pumpkin spice, and a friend asked for a pumpkin bread, so I got to it!
This Cinnamon Streusel Pumpkin Bread recipe will fill your house with smells of cinnamon and pumpkin spice when it is baking. It is just an amazing scent (don’t you just love fall baking?). It also makes it rather difficult to be patient enough for this bread to cool before diving in and having a slice. The streusel is my favorite part, which is also why I add a layer of it through the middle of the bread.
The cinnamon streusel is made of sugar, butter, cinnamon, and chopped nuts. I use pecans in this recipe because they are a great flavor pairing with the pumpkin puree. You could also use walnuts. I also like to leave the pecans in a rough chop, not too small. This gives great texture to the bread and streusel. If you are not a fan of chunks of nuts, just chop them finer.
