Moist pumpkin bread swirled with sweet cinnamon sugar and topped with a buttery crumble. Perfect for all of the autumn weekends ahead.
Sorry friends, I told you that I could not resist breaking in my new ovens with a few of my favorite Fall treats. Pumpkin bread is a staple at our house all year long, the spicy scent wafting through the house warms my heart and my belly. Frankly, you can never have enough pumpkin recipes in my opinion, sweet or savory. Last week I shared pumpkin bread with maple glaze this week I am sharing cinnamon swirl pumpkin bread with crumble topping. If it is too soon for your pumpkin fox bookmark or pin this post, if you don’t like pumpkin bread you better skip the post.
This moist pumpkin bread is a quick bread and comes together easily using pantry staples. You can have this bread mixed and ready to bake in less than 10 minutes. Cinnamon swirl pumpkin bread is perfect with coffee and tea for a snack, eaten for breakfast and to give away to family and friends. I made an extra loaf and gave it to my neighbors and will be making many more over the holidays for gift baskets.

1/2 cup of all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon sea salt
31/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold
Powdered Sugar Glaze

For the swirl
In a small bowl combine the cinnamon and sugar and set aside
For the crumble
In a medium size bowl combine the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt, mix well, then add the butter and with a pastry blende, two knives or using your hands mix until well combined. You want the mixture to be crumbly, when you press it together if forms crumbles.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9×5 loaf pan, line with parchment paper and then spray with cooking spray, set aside.
In a large bowl add the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, all spices, whisk together.
In another bowl mix the 2 eggs, the oil, and the vanilla then pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix well. DO NOT OVER MIX.
Pour half of the batter into prepared pan and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mixture, top with the rest of the batter. Using a knife or a skewer make a swirl. Then top the batter with the crumble topping.
Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan and then cool on a rack.
Once the bread is cool, mix the powdered sugar and a dash of milk in a bowl, stir until smooth, then drizzle on top of the bread.
NOTE: If you use pumpkin pie spice in place of the other spices use 2 teaspoons
