One of my favorite things to enjoy in the Fall is a nice slice of pumpkin bread. It’s one of my favorite things to enjoy with a cup of coffee, and the flavors just make me long for cooler weather. The weather guy at our local news said that we might get a “cool front” in two weeks – I’ll seriously take it! I’m SO ready for Fall weather, y’all!
This pumpkin crumb bread is the perfect way to start off Fall. This makes two large loaves, which is perfect for sharing. I brought this to my coworkers, and everyone enjoyed it! I subbed most of the oil that the original recipe called for with greek yogurt. I don’t bake with greek yogurt often enough, but it’s a great partial substitute for fats in a quick bread recipe. Then, the amazing crumb topping on top of each loaf? Oh y’all – it’s just glorious!
For the bread:
- 15 oz. can pumpkin puree
- 4 large Eggland’s Best eggs
- 2/3 cup Cabot Lowfat Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2/3 cup water
- 3 cups Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
- 1/4 tsp. ginger
For the crumb topping:
- 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp. packed brown sugar
- 2 tbsp. all purpose flour
- 2 tbsp. softened unsalted butter
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and grease/flour two bread pans (8.5 x 4 inches).
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the pumpkin puree, eggs, yogurt, oil, water and sugar until the mixture is well-blended. In a separate large bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, salt and spices. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, and mix until everything is just blended together (do not overmix). Split the batter evenly between the two prepared bread pans.
- To make the crumb topping, combine all ingredients together in a small bowl and blend them together with your fingers, until they resemble a wet sand texture. Crumble the topping evenly over the tops of the two loaves.
- Bake the bread loaves for about an hour. You will know the bread is done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean/with no crumbs. Enjoy!
