Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Bread
Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Bread is beyond awesome! I love pumpkin. I love Snickerdoodles and cinnamon. I love coconut. Put them all together in this delicious bread and voila! You get a bread that’s D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S and amazing. I’ve always liked sweet breads and pumpkin is definitely one of my favorites.
This one is a little different because it has cinnamon chips in the batter and a cinnamon-sugar topping on the bread. But the secret ingredient in this delicious bread is the instant coconut cream pudding and pie filling mix included in the recipe. This ingredient makes all the difference in having a ho-hum pumpkin bread and a spectacular pumpkin bread.
I found the original recipe from a Hammons Pantry brochure advertising black walnuts back in the 90s. We had received a Christmas gift of black walnuts and this brochure came along with the gift. Well, I couldn’t wait to try the recipes.
All of the recipes in that little brochure were fabulous, but this one was my favorite and most-used recipe. After I tried this bread I’ve never gone back to making pumpkin bread any other way. If you enjoy trying new recipes I highly recommend their website. They have some great stuff there. For this recipe, I used that basic recipe plus I added cinnamon chips and a cinnamon-sugar topping. It is scrumptious! I think you will like it too.
When I originally published this recipe in October 2012, I took pictures at night with a poor quality camera. The pictures were blurry and dark and did not do justice to this remarkably great bread.
I baked up a batch of this bread yesterday (September 2014), for John to take into his office and it has come back with rave reviews. I hope you take the opportunity to make a loaf of Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Bread soon. But prepare yourself for a seriously addicting sweet bread.
This amazing Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Bread has cinnamon chips, a cinnamon sugar topping and a cinnamon glaze.
This bread is so decadent with the Cinnamon Glaze drizzled over top!
Every bite of Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Bread will keep you wanting more!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients to make Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Bread.
Put pumpkin in large mixer bowl. Add eggs, oil, salt, baking soda and cinnamon.
Mix the ingredients with an electric mixer.
The secret ingredient to this recipe is coconut cream pudding and pie filling mix. It adds a spectacular flavor to this pumpkin bread recipe.
Add coconut cream pudding and pie filling mix, sugar and UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. I only use unbleached flour because bleached flour can toughen baked goods. Add walnuts and 1 cup of cinnamon chips.
If you have access to black walnuts they add a richness to this recipe that you can’t get with regular walnuts. Black walnuts are usually not available in our local stores but you can purchase them online. For this recipe, I used regular walnuts.
Stir everything together with a wooden spoon.
Spray a 9×5″ loaf pan or 3 miniature loaf pans with Bakers Joy cooking spray. This spray has flour which you need to help the bread come easily out of the pans when done. Pour pumpkin batter into prepared pans.
To make cinnamon-sugar mixture, place sugar in small bowl. Add cinnamon and mix to combine.
Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture over top of bread loaves.
Bake bread at 350 for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes. To check for doneness insert knife all the way to the bottom of the pan. When knife comes out clean the bread is done. Allow bread to cool completely before adding glaze.
To make glaze: place remaining 1 cup cinnamon chips in small saucepan over low heat. Add cream or milk.
Whisk ingredients until smooth.
Drizzle Cinnamon Glaze over top of cooled bread.
Slice and serve.
This is a marvelous bread to serve for special occasions like holiday breakfasts or brunches, baby showers, potlucks, or other parties.
This sweet Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Bread rocks!
