I had to tell you this. My mom makes really delicious pumpkin muffins. They’re out of this world amazing. The thing that I love most about them is the tops of the muffins have this gooey, moist coating that is melt in your mouth delicious.

This recipe reminds me of those muffins because look at the top of this bread! LOOK AT IT!! It has the most beautiful crinkles, and is soft and buttery and mouthwateringly gorgeous. I didn’t know it was possible to obsess and admire pumpkin bread for this long but alas, here we are 🙂

If you like pumpkiny baked goods as much as me, you NEED to try this pumpkin bread sans chocolate chunks. Or these chocolate chip pumpkin muffins! Or try these pumpkin spice blondies! They are so seasonally delicious!
