Pull-Apart Pumpkin Bread


This sweet and delicious Pull-Apart Pumpkin Bread is perfect for sharing. I love pumpkin and while I know it is an ingredient which is typically associated with Fall, I find them on sale at my local farmer’s market right into winter. I am always looking for unusual pumpkin recipes and adding it to bread is one of my favorite ways to use this fantastic ingredient.

Start by making a pumpkin bread dough. These loaves need plenty of time to rest and rise so make sure you factor that in if you are making this recipe. Once you have rolled out the dough into a rectangle, sprinkle a butter, cinnamon and brown sugar filling over the top. Roll it up and bake in the oven. Once the bread has cooled a bit, glaze with sugar, cinnamon and cream.

To make Pull-Apart Pumpkin Bread, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Pull-Apart Pumpkin Bread


Make dough


Place the warm milk and yeast in the bowl of an electric mixer and let it sit for about 7 minutes. Gradually whisk in ½ cup of the flour followed by 2 tablespoons of sugar and the pumpkin puree.


Prove the dough


Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave to rise in a warm place until puffy.


Finish the dough


Whisk in an egg, 1 tablespoon of melted butter, the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar and the salt. Using the dough hook on speed 2, gradually beat in the remaining 3 cups flour (½ a cup at a time). The dough should not stick to your fingertips when you touch it or stick to the sides of the bowl while mixing. Add more flour if it feels too sticky. Once all flour is in, continue to knead using the dough hook on speed 2 for 10 minutes.


Prove dough again


Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Leave it in a warm place until it doubles in size (1-2 hours).


Roll out the dough


Lightly dust a clean work surface. Place the dough in the center and sprinkle with a little flour. Roll the dough into an even 16x10 inch rectangle.


Spread butter on top


Dot the top of dough with 6 tablespoons of the softened butter and use a spatula to spread it out evenly.


Make the filling


In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar, cinnamon and pumpkin spice.


Sprinkle the filling on the dough


Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar filling over the buttered dough.


Make the bread rolls


Roll the dough rectangle into a tight roll starting with the longer side. Tuck in the ends and slice in half. Cut both halves into 1 inch pieces but keep the dough connected at the base (don't cut all the way through).


Place the bread in the pan


Lightly grease 2 bread pans with ½ tbsp of butter each. Place the sliced dough halves into the buttered pans with the connected side down. Pull the sliced rounds gently into opposite directions to create a layered effect. Again, cover the dough with plastic. Leave to rise until puffy.


Heat the oven and brush with butter

Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Brush the bread dough with melted butter.




Bake the bread in the oven for 20-25 minutes until it is light golden brown on top.


Make glaze


Mix the powdered sugar with cinnamon and add cream until the glaze reaches your desired consistency.


Glaze the bread


Allow the bread to cool for 10 minutes in the bread pans before generously pouring the glaze over the loaves.



Serve in the center of the table and allow your guests to tear them apart.

Going to be baking this again shortly, my husband decided to eat it all before I could even snatch another bite. Thats how good it is.

Anabelle Grato

This is just as good as the vegan banana bread, cant wait to share this with my friends and family.

Maddie Noye

If you're not a sweet tooth tone down on the sugar in this recipe as it turns out really sweet, the recipe suggestion is a tad too much.

Bryleigh Luchansky

Used almond milk instead because I am lactose intolerant, it only added to the amazing flavor of this bread.

Taryn Roers

I used the breadmaker instead, wasnt as fancy but it sure tasted good.

Kaylynn Dimit

Family loved this pumpkin bread more than poundcake, its officially baked every month.

Araceli Abercrombie

Skipped the cinnamon because my husband is allergic and instead added vanilla extract.

Dorothy Balbach

This takes a long time to make and requires a lot of pantience, the end result is still delicious though.

Pyper Albakri

So I've decided to add a little bit more ingredients to enchance the flavours, my Pumpkin bread also had walnuts.

Ayanna Burnes

20 minutes definitely was not enough to bake the bread, it turned out golden on the inside but the dough was raw inside. Had to leave it in for another five to ten minutes.

Katrina Bate

Took a while for me to perfect this recipe but it was worth it because it turned out great.

Lindsey Lincks

I skipped the glaze suggested in the recipe and used chocolate instead since I am a chocolate fanatic.

Jolene Eveleth

Would recommend this if you're a huge pumpkin fan like myself.

Nathalie Kaczkowski

Wish it didnt take as much time to make this, I'd rather spend time eating it than baking. If only a cloning machine existed.

Adilyn Vanduren

Very delicious, I love all things that have pumpkin in them. Had this with my starbucks pumpkin latte.

Takes a super duper long time to bake, I like the bread but not sure if i'll have time to make for it so might invest in a bread making machine.

Farah Fryc

Really enjoyed this, normally I'm not a fan of anything pumpkin other than pie but this bread changed my mind.

Rivka Kollar

Added chocolate chips to mine along with some chopped up almonds then I drizzled it with melted white chocolate.Prekrasno!

Very unique, I cant find this in any store. I've only had it once during a halloween event in october, happy that I can now make it myself at home.

This was very flavorful, I love the hint of cinnamon in this pastry.

My husband refuses to buy any sort of meal now that I've been cooking things from this website, everything I make is apparently better than anything he can order and now that I've actually tried this Pumpkin bread, I can agree with him!
