The BEST Pumpkin Bread with Brown Butter Maple Icing

The relaxation of the sector is blissfully sipping PSL’s at the same time as they package deal up in peacoats and scarves and break out their Hunter boots for coming near near thunderstorms. Me? I’m digging thru my closet for the tiniest shorts I personal in an attempt to live cool and the handiest thunderstorm in Sacramento is the thunderous sobbing via yours in reality over the truth that it’s ALMOST ONE HUNDRED DEGREES STILL.

The BEST Pumpkin Bread with Brown Butter Maple Icing
Recipe type: Breakfast
Perfectly spiced, moist and tender, this Pumpkin Bread will soon become a family favorite! Leave it naked if you wish, or stud it with nuts – however, I prefer mine with this simple brown butter maple glaze. I’m sure you will, too!
Ingredients
  • ½ cup butter, softened (I used Land O Lakes)
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree (the puree, NOT pumpkin pie filling!)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 & ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 & ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • FOR GLAZE:
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 – 1 & ½ cups powdered sugar (start with one cup and add more if glaze is too runny)
  • 1-2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ cup milk, optional if glaze is too thick
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a 9″ loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a bowl combine all of the above bread ingredients and beat at medium speed with a handheld mixer, scraping down the sides of the bowl, until well-mixed.
  3. Pour the bread mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for approx. 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out mostly clean or with a couple moist crumbs (not wet). Cool for about 15 minutes, then very gently remove from pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. While bread cools, make your glaze: in a small saucepan, heat butter over medium-low heat until melted. Continue cooking, watching butter carefully, until it sizzles and begins to turn amber in color, about 4-5 minutes. Do not overcook because it can quickly burn! When butter looks caramel-colored and smells kind of nutty, it’s done. Remove butter from heat and cool completely. Then stir in the powdered sugar and maple syrup until a soft glaze has formed.
  5. Pour the glaze
