This sweet, buttery bread with a biscuitlike texture is delicately spiced. Use fresh blueberries, if possible, but if you only have frozen berries, stir them into the batter without thawing them.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Coat a 4-quart oval slow cooker with cooking spray or line the slow cooker with a disposable liner. In a medium bowl stir together pumpkin, half-and-half, and brown sugar; set aside.

  • In a large bowl stir together the 2 cups flour, the baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the 1/4 cup cold butter until pieces are pea-size. Add pumpkin mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until combined. In a small bowl combine blueberries and the 1 tablespoon flour; toss until berries are coated. Fold berries into flour mixture.

  • Spoon mixture into prepared slow cooker. Pour maple syrup and the 2 tablespoons melted butter over mixture in slow cooker; sprinkle with pecans.

  • Cover and cook on high-heat setting for 2 to 2-1/2 hours. Turn off slow cooker. Carefully remove lid so condensation from lid does not drip onto bread. Cover opening of slow cooker completely with paper towels; place lid on top. Cool for 30 to 45 minutes. Serve bread warm from slow cooker.


To toast nuts, preheat oven to 350°F. Spread nuts in a shallow baking pan. Bake for 5 to 10 minutes or until nuts are light brown, shaking pan once or twice.
