Baking Pull Apart Pumpkin Bread



anna thompson


September 1st officially means I can let my love for all things pumpkin out of the bag.  Don’t tell anyone, but I actually made this Pull Apart Pumpkin Bread recipe over at Sweet Life of Anna in August and it was AMAZING! This pull apart bread was super easy and added a nice twist to the traditional pumpkin bread. To me, this is like pumpkin bread and a cinnamon roll got together to have a baby and Oh. My. Goodness, cutest baby you ever did see! If there is one thing you need to add to your holiday menu list or just because, make sure it’s  this recipe!




​now that you’re drooling, here’s the scrumptious how to for this pumpkin bread:

​Pumpkin Pull Apart Bread Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup pumpkin pie mix*
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 can (8 count) large biscuits (homestyle or buttermilk, not flaky)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar*
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream or milk
  • A pinch of salt* (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9×5 inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray (use the kind with flour for best results or sprinkle your greased pan with a little flour).
  2. Stir together the pumpkin pie mix and egg. Set aside.
  3. Open the can of biscuits and slice each in half horizontally making a total of 16 biscuit rounds out of the 8.
  4. Stir together 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl. Coat each slice of raw biscuit dough with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  5. Spread slightly less than 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie mix on top of each biscuit round then place another biscuit piece on top. Add more pumpkin mixture and continue stacking, spreading, and layering until you’re out of biscuits. Place carefully into the pan.
  6. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until loaf is deep golden brown and center is baked through. If your loaf starts to get too brown then loosely cover it with foil.
  7. Cool 10 minutes. In small bowl, mix powdered sugar, milk, vanilla and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over warm loaf and serve.


  •  If you can’t find pumpkin pie mix you can make your own at home by mixing 3/4 cup of pumpkin puree, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice until well blended.
  • Dough cooks differently in all ovens, if you know yours cooks fast, you may want to lower the temperature slightly or expect a shorter cook time. Vice versa for a slower cooking oven.
  • I tend to like my glaze a little bit on the thicker side, so sometimes I play with the powdered sugar and milk until I get the consistency I like. If you think your glaze is too runny, add more powdered sugar. If it’s too thick, add more milk or heavy cream.
  • I always like to add a pinch of salt to my glaze to break up the sweetness and give it that sweet and salty flavor.

    Good morning;
    Love your website and posts, especially the pull apart pumpkin bread.
    I do have a personal question to ask, the african american lady in the picture has the most beautiful color of lipstick on, may I ask what she is wearing?
    keep up the great work and take care.

    What would happen if you put the cinnamon & sugar in with the pumpkin puree instead of on the biscuit?

      I did this last night and it still tasted good however the pumpkin was a little overpowered by the sweetness.

    This was so easy and so delicious. Thanks so much for sharing. One quick note, I’m assuming the 1 teaspoon of cinnamon in the glaze is supposed to be 1 teaspoon of vanilla? Anyways, that’s what I did and it tasted great. 😊
