This bread is moist, delicious and with a sweet, nutty praline topping is totally amazing! Fall-perfect – Pumpkin Praline Bread!
Inspired by my Apple Praline Bread, I thought I’d make a pumpkin version of it. After all it’s Fall season which means Pumpkin time, too. I also wanted to try a new pumpkin bread recipe. I wasn’t sure it was going to work out the first time I made it but I was pleasantly surprised that it came out well. It was moist and delicious. It was so good that I probably ate half of the loaf (since my hubby is on a grain-free diet and cannot have it – which is not really good for my waist!) while the rest were eaten by the tots.
For this first attempt, I added the nuts only to the Praline topping but, next time, I think I’ll add some to the batter as well for that extra crunch in every bite. If you fancy making some pumpkin bread, why not try this one for a change? Have a lovely Fall!
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs (room temp)
1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt (light or regular)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
1/3-1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
For the Praline Topping
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 Tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnut
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Lightly grease a large loaf pan. You can line it with parchment paper for easier removal. Mix all Praline Topping ingredients until crumbly. Set aside.
Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk together to mix. Set aside.
Sprinkle the praline topping onto the batter. Distribute the topping as evenly as you can.
Cool in the pan for about 15 minutes then remove it by lifting the parchment paper. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely before slicing. This will ensure the bread will not break apart.
