Streusel Mixture

  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 cup pecans or walnuts, coarsely chopped


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin spice (see notes for recipe)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 15 ounces pumpkin puree (pure pumpkin, not pie filling)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 8 Tablespoons unsalted butter melted (1 stick)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • In a small bowl, combine all of the streusel mix ingredients together. Stir until it resembles wet sand. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350 with your rack in the lower-middle position.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin spice, and salt in a large bowl.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla. Whisk together.
  • Add the pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients and gently mix until just incorporated. The batter will be very thick.
  • Spray a 9x5 loaf pan generously with vegetable oil spray.
  • Pour half of the batter into the loaf pan, making sure the entire bottom is covered. Sprinkle half of the streusel topping across the batter, covering completely.
  • Pour the rest of batter into the loaf pan to cover the streusel. Tap on the counter to release air bubbles and smooth the top with a spatula.
  • Add the rest of the streusel across the top of the bread. Gently press down to help it adhere.
  • Bake at 350F until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean with a few crumbs, approximately 50-60 minutes.
  • Let the bread cool in the loaf pan for 10 minutes. Dump out the bread (it should come out easily from the spray) and let the bread cool on a wire rack for one hour.

Ceramic and porcelain loaf pans can take a little longer than metal pans to bake.  You can also bake this in round or rectangular cake pans however the cooking time will be much faster since it is thinner.
