For the crumb topping

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 stick cold butter cut into pieces


  • Spray your slow cooker/crock pot with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin, eggs, butter, applesauce, beer, both sugars and syrup until well blended.
  • Add in the baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger (I add plenty of the spices to ‘pepper’ the mixture well).
  • Add in one cup of flour at a time, mixing fully before adding another cup.
  • Mix your crumb topping together with a pastry blender, two knives, or using your hands, until it forms the crumble.
  • Pour into the sprayed slow cooker/crock pot.
  • Sprinkle generously the crumb over top.
  • Bake on low overnight.
  • Bread is done when a toothpick/skewer/knife inserted in center comes out clean.
