Pumpkin Bread with Maple Cream Icing might just be one of the best pumpkin treats I’ve ever eaten. It’s moist, has all the fall spices, and has a drizzle of icing right on top to add some sweetness to the bread.
If I could add pumpkin to everything this time of year, I would. Trust me. I had good intentions to share this with the neighbors, but after taking a few bites, and the family scarfing down the bread, we didn’t have any left over to share.
The combination of the fresh baked, moist pumpkin spice bread and the maple-flavored icing is to die for. It is a blend of warm and comforting tastes.
And who doesn’t love a perfectly moist pumpkin bread?
Recipe and printable instructions listed below
First, add the flour, brown sugar, spices, salt, baking soda and baking powder into the bowl. Mix it a bit to combine. I always have to brag on my Kitchenaid mixer. I can just throw things into the bowl while it mixes.
Add the eggs, milk, softened butter, and the oh-so-wonderful pumpkin into the mix.
Mix everything together.
Pour the pumpkin bread batter into a greased bread pan and bake.
Maple Cream Icing
Add the powdered sugar to a bowl.
Next, add the heavy cream and maple syrup and mix everything together. The syrup gives it such a wonderful rich flavor. It brings out the spices in the easy pumpkin bread recipe for a full-flavored treat.
If you need a little more heavy cream, just add about 1/2 teaspoon at a time.
Once the bread has cooled, pour the icing over the top. It was hard not to take a fork and just start eating it right then and there.
Once you slice it, it is so moist that it’s a bit of a mess, but it’s all the same going down. Delicious, delicious, delicious. If you bring this to a party, I guarantee you will be the talk of the party.
It looks good enough to eat off the page! Enjoy!
