  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup chocolate hazelnut spread I use Nutella


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons butter melted
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
  • pinch cocoa powder


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line a 9x5 bread pan with parchment paper, set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt.
  • In a large mixing bowl, I use my KitchenAid mixer, mix together sugar and eggs until well combined. 
  • Add in buttermilk, melted butter, vanilla extract,and pumpkin, stir until all the ingredients are incorporated. Slowly mix in flour mixture, until there are no clumps and mixture is smooth. 
  • Divide batter in half by placing the second half in a separate bowl. In one of the bowls stir in the 1/2 cup of Nutella and stir until well combined.
  • Alternate between the two batters and pour into the prepared bread pan. I start with the plain, add Nutella batter, top with plain again, Nutella batter, then a tablespoon or two of the plain on top. Use a knife to swirl the batters, don’t over swirl, you will then combine the batters. Run the knife one time through the pan.
  • Place in oven and bake for 60-70 minutes. Remove from oven and let it cool for 15-20 minutes.
  • Prepare glaze, pour over bread just before serving and enjoy!


  • Combine confectioners’ sugar, cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Add milk as needed, to achieve drizzling consistency.
