The Fall baking season has started with a roar! I honestly do not bake a lot during the rest of the year, but come October it is a baking fest in my kitchen. I’ve got a long list of new recipes to try and lighten. Lightening a dessert recipe takes a lot of trial and error. Baking is a science and when you change one ingredient it has a big impact on the recipe. It took me three tries to get this Pumpkin Streusel Bread the way I wanted it. Whenever I am working on a baked recipe, I always look for ways to reduce the sugar and fat. Yogurt and applesauce works as a good substitute for fat. I always decrease the amouut of sugar in a recipe and in this one I also used SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend. Just like the name implies, it is a blend of brown sugar and SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener. That means you may need half as much in a recipe as regular brown sugar and you have half the calories. That is a good deal.

I am truly the pumpkin lover in my family. My husband and daughter are not really on board the pumpkin train. I was rather surprised when they both enjoyed this Pumpkin Streusel Bread. It is a moist bread filled with pumpkin flavor and a dash of cinnamon and other spices. It really was a nice balance. One day I even made french toast out of it. Woo wee, that was tasty. I think it would be perfect for Thanksgiving. Quick breads are the type of recipes I like to have on hand to make gifts for neighbors during the holidays. Pumpkin Streusel Bread makes a wonderful hostess gift, if you are heading to a party, or even a Christmas present. If you are hitting the road for Thanksgiving, bring a couple of loaves with you to share with family. Full warning, you may be tempted to eat it in the car before arriving at your destination. It would be better to bring an extra one or two.

  1. Now that is a gorgeous loaf of bread! I am a sucker for streusel topping and this looks so yummy...perfect with a cup of coffee for breakfast!
  2. I love splenda - it's my favorite sweetener! Love this pumpkin bread especially all that crunchy delicious streusel topping!
  3. I love Pumpkin Recipes, this looks delicious!
  4. Christie--this looks delicious !!! A family member has extreme sensitivity to Splenda ( significant headaches ...) so I would like to make this using plain old brown sugar...Would I use the same amount of it in this recipe or would I need to add more or less ??? also , how would the nutritional info change when using brown sugar ??? thanks so much for your help !
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Doris, The nutritional value will significantly go up. I would use light brown sugar and you would need to double the amount of sugar. I might try a little less, just because I prefer my baked goods less sweet. I hope you all enjoy it.
  5. Such a pretty loaf! I can just imagine that CRUNCH on top.
  6. I was planning to make a pumpkin bread this week, I am going to use this one! :)
  7. I'm not a huge fan of artificial sweeteners, but I bet it would still be amazing with a natural sweetener like honey or pure maple syrup! Love the topping!
  8. Dear Christine, French toast! I can only imagine how heavenly that would be with this beautiful loaf. :)
