How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350° F with the rack positioned in the bottom third of the oven.
  • Butter a 9x5" loaf pan.
  • For the filling:
  • Stir together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a small mixing bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until it creates pea-sized crumbs. Set aside.
  • For the bread:
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together melted butter, sugar, pumpkin, milk, eggs, and vanilla until combined.
  • In another bowl, sift together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, ginger, nutmeg, chopped walnuts, and baking powder.
  • Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix with a rubber spatula just until combined.
  • Do not overmix!
  • Spoon half the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Spread the filling over the batter and cover with the remaining batter.
  • Place the walnut halves over the surface of the bread.
  • Bake until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 65 to 70 minutes. Don't overbake.
  • Transfer the pan to a wire cooling rack and let cool for at least 15 minutes.
  • Using a thin knife or spatula, release the bread from the pan and let cool to room temperature.
