Pumpkin Bread with Maple Glaze

Growing up I was not a pumpkin fan. Pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread were big no-nos for me! I am not sure why, but I can definitely tell you that I was missing out!! Pumpkin baked goods are the epitome of fall … they’re cozy, warm, full of spice, and just so dang delicious. This Pumpkin Bread with Maple Glaze is just that, and has me wondering why I waited so long to try the classic fall treat.

Pumpkin Bread with Maple Glaze is the best! It’s extra moist, full of warm fall spice, the perfect level of sweet, and complete with a simple maple glaze. This easy bread is great for breakfast or dessert and is a true must make this fall!

Ingredients needed for Pumpkin Bread with Maple Glaze…

This recipe calls for all your classic pumpkin bread ingredients! Pumpkin puree, pure maple syrup, and warm fall spices are the stars of the show.

  • Pumpkin: Pumpkin puree is of course the base of this Moist Pumpkin Bread Recipe. You will need 1 1/2 cups and I recommend this brand!
  • Sugar: 1 cup of sugar adds the perfect level of sweetness here.
  • Pure Maple Syrup: You’ll need pure maple syrup for the maple glaze. 2 tbsp is perfect!
  • Powdered Sugar: The maple glaze is definitely sweet so add 1/2 cup of powdered sugar too.
  • Flour: This delicious pumpkin bread calls for 1 1/4 cups of all purpose flour! This amount makes this bread as moist as can be.
  • Eggs: Add 2 eggs to the pumpkin bread batter for extra moisture and binding!
  • Butter: Butter adds that rich, delicious, and classic flavor here. 1/2 cup of melted, salted butter is perfect!
  • Spices: This pumpkin bread is loaded with lots of flavorful spices! You’ll need 1 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp cloves, and 1/4 tsp ginger. It makes for the perfect fall taste!
  • Milk: This recipe only calls for a splash of milk! It helps thin out the maple glaze and you can use the milk of your choice.
  • Vanilla Extract: Vanilla extract is used in both the glaze and pumpkin bread, add 1 tsp to each!
  • Baking Powder: 2 tsp of baking powder bakes this recipe to perfection.
  • Salt: Add a pinch of salt, 1/2 tsp to be exact, to this pumpkin bread. It helps to bring out all the delicious flavors going on!

Can I use pumpkin pie spice instead of individual spices?

Yes, you definitely can! You could replace all the individual spice measurements with an equal amount of pumpkin pie spice.

However, I think using the individual spices; cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon … just creates the most delicious flavor! It takes this bread to whole new level and truly creates the taste of fall.

Which pumpkin puree should I use?

Up until a little while ago I did not realize that each canned pumpkin puree is different! And thus will create different results when used in baking. Depending on the brand of pumpkin puree you use, you will get a different texture and consistency to your treats!

For this specific pumpkin recipe I recommend this brand of pumpkin puree! The puree is super moist and smooth, which contributes to the super moist texture of the bread itself.

Storing Pumpkin Bread with Maple Glaze..

This Easy Pumpkin Bread can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days! Since this bread is extra moist … to keep fresh for any longer than that, I recommend moving to the refrigerator. It will last about 1 week there!

You could freeze this pumpkin bread too! It will last a couple months in the freezer.
