Pumpkin Bread Ring Recipe

I've been making this moist bread for years. It looks pretty on the table and provides a nice taste of pumpkin on your menu when you're not planning pumpkin pie for dessert. -Theresa Stewart, New Oxford, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 55 min. + cooling YIELD:12-16 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter, softened

"This was a great tasting cake. I even substituted the baking mix with gluten free bisquick. It was delicious. Very moist and tasty for days. My kids loved it too (they are little and can be picky). I was not particularly fond of the frosting. Next time I will not brown the butter and instead will add some orange food coloring for a Halloween look."

"this pumpkin bread ring not only looks pretty but is a very moist bread . The glaze adds extra sweetness without overpowering the pumpkin taste. I made it just like the recipe. The only change I may make next time I might add chopped pecans to the batter"

"It's okay. I thought it was a little bland. The glaze makes it. I found myself not wanting to eat the parts without glaze. It does look pretty,"

"I prepared this recipe last weekend. The flavor was great, however I thought it was a bit dry. I will try this again, but I think I'll add some raisins or maybe some nuts with it. Gotta love fall and the smell of baked goods with pumpkin."

"I went to school in New Oxford, PA, so when I saw this recipe was submitted by one of its residents, I had to make it. That was a week ago and I'm on my second ring already.

We love it and I will definitely make it again. I will say, however, that both times I've made it the glaze soaked into the bread and turned out a tan hue rather than white. What didn't soak into the bread ran into the middle of the ring to form a deep puddle and also ran out onto my cake keeper. Obviously, I'm not doing something properly with respect to the glaze. I think next time I'm going with a simpler glaze 'recipe' to see if that helps. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
We love it, even with the bum glaze. :)"
