I am so excited to share today’s recipe. This Pumpkin Pull Apart bread is simply amazing, and the maple cream cheese icing gives it a special delicious touch, as well. This bread is definitely going to be a Fall tradition at our house. If the icing sounds familiar, that’s because we made a similar icing we put on our Pumpkin Cupcakes and our Pumpkin Waffles– aka, it’s wonderful!
I really could have eaten the whole loaf of this myself, not that it would be the healthiest decision, but this is one of my new favorite Fall recipes, and I will probably make it again sometime this month. It was great leftover and reheated, too, which was wonderful. This is the perfect recipe for your Fall breakfast or brunch, and would make a spectacular breakfast for Thanksgiving morning.
Here’s what you’ll need to make it-
- 1 can pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 can of 8 count buttermilk buscuits
Then, for the icing you’ll need-
- 8 oz of cream cheese, room temperature
- 6 tbsp butter, melted
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups powdered sugar
To make it, you’ll need to-
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray your bread loaf pan generously with cooking spray. In a large bowl, add pumpkin puree, sugar, egg, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon. Mix well until combined, set aside. Then, cut your biscuits in half. Place 6 biscuit halves into the bottom of your bread pan, staggering them. Add the remaining biscuits to your pumpkin mixture bowl and mix to coat the biscuits in the mixture. Bake 25-27 minutes. For the last 10 minutes, cover pan loosely with foil so that the biscuits do not burn on top. Meanwhile, to make your icing… in a medium bowl, mix together all of the icing ingredients on medium speed for 2-3 minutes. Once the bread has finished baking, be sure to check that the biscuits in the middle are cooked through. If not, bake another 5 minutes and check again. Then, once the bread cools slightly, you can add your icing.
There you have the best bread that I have personally ever made, and that I am very excited to make again, soon. This almost reminds me of a cinnamon roll type bread with delicious pumpkin and the best icing you’ve ever tasted.
I hope that you enjoy this recipe, too, and please let us know if you make it and how it turns out!
