Buttermilk Pumpkin Bread

Put down the fork is what you will have to keep telling yourself once you take a bite of this. Once it's down just pick it up with your hands and enjoy. 

Recently we purchased a learning tower for my son, he has enjoyed making eggs in the morning and peanut butter sandwiches for lunch. He has also loved that there is a chalkboard on the back of it to draw on. After nap one day last week I had everything set up for us to make Pumpkin Bread. This boy is a lover of pumpkin bread like his mama, and often times will pass up a cake pop at Starbucks for a warm loaf of pumpkin bread on our journey through Target. 

I knew I wanted some type of crumb topping--because who can really resist a buttery sugary goodness crumbled on top of your bread. I actually made way to much of it, but hey it was heavenly. The recipe below has a decrease in the crumb topping but feel free to add more if you'd like! 

Grab a cup of coffee and a warm slice of this bread and you are sure to forget that it's 90 degrees outside!
