Glazed Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Loaf

  • Author: Sophia Inza
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 50 minutes
  • Total Time: 60 minutes
  • Yield: 1 loaf 1x


For the loaf:

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tsp. all spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the Streusel Topping:

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces (or you can use 1/4 cup canola oil)
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 12 teaspoons milk (more or less, depending on the consistency you’re looking for.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray or butter.
  2. For the streusel, combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon.  Cut in the butter.  Then stir in the pecans.  Set aside.
  3. For the loaf: Place the oil, egg whites, pumpkin puree and vanilla extract in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until it begins to thicken.  In a separate bowl, whisk all the dry ingredients until combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined.
  4. Pour the batter into prepared loaf pan.  Take a handful of streusel and press it lightly into the loaf.  Then add more on top. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  5. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then carefully remove from pan (be careful not to lose all the streusel from the top!).  Allow it to cool for 30 minutes.
  6. For the glaze: combine sugar and milk until it is your desired consistency.  Drizzle over the loaf (or pour, I won’t tell! haha)


Tip: For a more flavorful glaze, add a drop of vanilla!
