While pumpkin bread is the perfect fall treat, my family is game for this recipe at any time of the year.
My mom shared this recipe with me years ago and each time I bake pumpkin bread, I pull out the printed e-mail that includes the recipe. I had to type out the recipe to share with a group I am in, so I figured I would type it out and share here on the blog.
One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it uses an entire can of pumpkin. So many other pumpkin recipes don’t use the entire can and then I am always stuck with finding ways to use the leftover pumpkin.
I enjoy serving this bread to my girls. To cut down on their sugar intake for breakfast, I chop of the top of their bread. I enjoy eating the top of their slices (the streusel!). They haven’t figured me out yet. :)
This recipe makes 2 loaves. It also works perfectly for muffins if you prefer.
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup quick oats
- 2 T melted butter
- 1 2/3 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup oil
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 4 eggs
- 1 15 ounce can of pumpkin
- 3 cups flour
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- Preheat oven to 350. Grease 2 9x5 (or 8x4) baking pans.
- Crumble together brown sugar, oats, and melted butter for the topping. Set aside.
- Mix together sugar, oil, vanilla, eggs, and pumpkin.
- Stir in flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and ginger.
- Pour batter into pans and sprinkle with topping.
- Bake for about 55 minutes, until toothpick in center comes out clean.
- Cool for 10 minutes in pan.
- This recipe can be used to make muffins instead. Bake at 350 for about 23 minutes.
- You may substitute the oats in topping for chopped pecans.
- You may substitute the 2/3 cup of oil for 1/3 cup applesauce AND 1/3 cup oil.
- Sugar can be reduced by 1/3 cup and there is little difference in the taste.
- You may substitute a portion of the white sugar for brown sugar.

I’ve never had pumpkin bread with a streusel topping and I’m LOVING the addition of oats! I bet with a whole can of pumpkin this bread is super moist – such a great breakfast treat! Thanks for sharing!
This sounds delicious! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us on the Art of Home-Making Mondays! :)

Jennifer Dodrill @ All-In-One-Mom says
My pumpkin bread recipe is from my mom! It’s my favorite!! I like the idea of oatmeal in yours, very unique! Pinning this one :)
It’s actually supposed to have chopped pecans, but I never have pecans in my kitchen. And oats are cheaper!
Thanks for pinning!
I love pumpkin and this sounds delicious! I am pinning for later!
Thanks for pinning. I hope you enjoy the bread!
What a sweet and giving mom you are to eat the top of their bread! I feel certain they wouldn’t like it. Ha! Man, I love pumpkin bread with streusel topping, plus this recipe makes two loaves…one to eat and one to freeze or share. Thanks so much for posting to Waiting On…Wednesday! Pinning for sure!
I know…I am so unselfish. It’s such a sacrifice on my part. ;)
Yes, I love that it creates 2 loaves. It freezes great. I forgot to mention that in my post! Thanks for pinning.

I agree! Pumpkin should be eaten year-round! :)
I remember seeing this on Instagram and didn’t have a chance to hop over to check it out. I love love pumpkin bread. Never thought of putting a topping on top other than a glaze. Pinning this for my next baking day.

This looks delicious. I love that you have a topping. The crunch of the oats would be a nice twist to typical pumpkin bread.
The topping is the best part! I typically just serve the bottom to my daughters and eat their topping myself. Ha!
