Ginger Pumpkin Bread with Maple Brown Butter Icing

Ginger Pumpkin Bread with Maple Brown Butter Icing

Baking partners challenge for this month is a pumpkin bread.  Swathi suggested  a fall theme. There were two bread recipes, an yeast bread and a quick bread. I selected the sweet non-yeast version of quick bread with maple brown butter icing. It is a moist and flavorful bread with the flavor of ginger and is a perfect treat.  Brown butter contributes a rich depth of flavor which smells so inviting. These recipes are suggested by Tamy.

Thanks Tamy and Swathi for this months challenge. The bread was tasty and my family enjoyed.


All purpose flour- 2 1/2 cup
Baking powder- 2 tsp
Salt- 1/2 tsp
Ground ginger- 2 tsp
Butter- 1 stick

Granulated sugar- 1/2 cup
Packed light brown sugar- 1 cup
Pumpkin puree- 1 3/4 cup/ 15 ounces

For the glaze
Maple syrup- 3 tbs
Vanilla extract- 1/4 tsp
Unsalted butter- 1/2 stick
Powdered Sugar- 1 cup
Heavy cream- 3-4 tbs
Salt- a pinch

Pre heat oven to 350 degree. Prepare loaf pan,first grease it  with cooking spray/oil and then dust with flour and spread all around. Tap off the excess flour and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, ginger, and salt. In another bowl whisk together the egg and sugar till well combined. Mix in pumpkin puree and melted butter. Add the flour and fold in till it is combined.
Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake until a cake tester is inserted into the center and comes out clean. It will take about 60- 70 minutes.Let cool 10 minutes; invert pan and transfer the loaf to a wire rack to cool completely

To make the glaze
Heat butter in a skillet in low heat. The butter will melt and will start bubbling. Allow to cook until solid separates and brown to a golden color.  Once melted and a deep golden, turn off the heat. When it cools down a bit add maple syrup an vanilla and whisk. When it cools down a bit add powdered sugar, heavy cream and salt and whisk till you get a smooth glaze. Drizzle the warm glaze over the pumpkin bread. Slice and serve.
