Turn the season’s favorite Pumpkin Spice Latte into an out of this world delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte Loaf; its warm and cozy flavor profile vibes make it perfect for a breakfast treat or afternoon snack.
While the temperature outside is taking its dear sweet time to cool off, there is nothing more exciting than the exit of summer and the return of Fall which welcomes pumpkin spiced all.the.things. My favorite recipe to bake every Fall is this Pumpkin Praline Bread Pudding so I’m excited to add another pumpkin inspired recipe to the stockpile.
Just because it’s still a bit too warm for lattes does not mean you have to sacrifice all the delicious flavor of your favorite seasonal beverage, however. That’s where my Pumpkin Spice Latte Loaf comes in!
It infuses Pumpkin Spice Coffee, found at your local Sprouts (that’s right, they have pumpkin spice coffee!), into it’s warmly spiced batter. The extra pumpkin spice kick makes for the most deliciously moist and flavor punched dessert bread.
- For the Loaf:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon allspice
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 3 Tablespoons pumpkin spice coffee, brewed
- 1 cup pure pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
- For the Cream Cheese Topping:
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
- 2-3 Tablespoons milk (more as needed)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, optional
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat an 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch inch loaf baking pan with nonstick baking spray with flour and line with parchment paper the length of the loaf pan, letting excess extend over the sides of the pan.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice.
In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add the oil and vanilla.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating just until combined and scraping down the sides of the bowl in between each addition. Add the brewed coffee and pumpkin and mix until fully incorporated.
Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, a little at a time, mixing between additions, just until combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out mostly clean, about 55 minutes.
Transfer cake to a cooling rack and let cool slightly and then use the parchment handles to remove it from the pan.
Make the cream cheese topping:
In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add the powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons of milk and vanilla. Beat until just combined. To thin, add a 1 tablespoon of milk. More powdered sugar for a thicker consistency.
Once the loaf cooled, use an offset spatula to evenly spread the frosting. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts, if desired.
And you can certainly brew the coffee as usual, but this recipe idea comes in handy for those warm days when you want your home to be filled with the aroma of Fall baking as you pull out the seasonal decor, but don’t necessarily want a hot cup of coffee.
Slathered with a cream cheese frosting, you can have this Pumpkin Spice Latte Loaf for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or even dessert! No judgement here if you have it for all three and run through the loaf in record time.
Unrelated to the recipe, but a package of Pumpkin Spice coffee tied with twine and a set of coffee mugs makes an easy gift idea to show someone you are thinking of them “a latte”. I am certain it will make the day of a fellow pumpkin spice loving friend.
It’s what I love most about shopping at Sprouts. You just never know when you’re going to round the corner and find something unique. My favorite coffee scoop was purchased when I put together this gift basket filled with finds from Sprouts. It’s made from bamboo and multi-functional, sealing the coffee AND working as a scoop! I digress.
Add this Pumpkin Spice Latte Loaf to your Fall baking list and be sure to swing by Sprouts to grab the coffee while it’s available in store. I’d even grab two, now that you’ll know you’ll be baking and sipping your way through the season. But don’t delay, it’s only available for a limited time.
