Cinnamon crusted pumpkin bread is a delicious twist to a traditional pumpkin bread recipe! It makes me a wee bit wary when I shake up our tried and true pumpkin bread recipe. But no worries, as this Easy Pumpkin Bread Recipe was a hit!
Cinnamon Crusted Pumpkin Bread
A week before Nick’s fall break from college, I inquired about any food favorites he’d like me to prepare. He pondered this for a few seconds and quickly came up with pumpkin bread. Coincidentally, this was one of the foods I craved when I was first away from home, too.
Steak and pork chops made the shortlist, too, but those were a given. He’d been cooking for himself and I think he and his buddies hadn’t advanced past Sandwich 101. I kicked this recipe up a notch and made Cinnamon Crusted Pumpkin Bread.

Well, it was no surprise when loaf number one disappeared in a flash. Number two was hidden deep in the freezer for Nick to take back to his apartment. You should see the thick slices that made their way to my kids’ breakfast plates. I was concerned that shaking up the spices from my tried and true recipe and the sprinkling of cinnamon sugar might dampen the appeal of these loaves, but not at all. This Cinnamon Crusted Pumpkin Bread was inhaled.
Cinnamon crusted pumpkin bread would be perfect for your Thanksgiving breakfast, or if my kids had their way, any breakfast of the year.
