Streusel Topped Pumpkin Bread

This is a perfectly moist quick bread that has a special streusel topping, giving it just the right amount of crunchy sweetness.
It uses canned pumpkin and canola oil,
 the streusel has oatmeal
you can add walnuts and/or golden raisins to the batter, adding healthy benefits.

Streusel Topped Pumpkin Bread

Bake at 350 degrees - 50-55 min.
Grease (or use non-stick cooking spray) one standard sized loaf pan.


1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin
1/4 cup canola (or other veg. oil)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (if desired)
1/2 cup golden raisins

Streusel Topping:

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) cold butter
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup oatmeal (quick or old fashioned)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
To make loaf:
Mix flour, baking powder, pie spice and salt in medium bowl.
Beat egg and sugar in large bowl.
Beat pumpkin, oil and vanilla into egg/sugar mixture until smooth.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add egg/pumpkin mixture.
Stir just until moistened. Over mixing will de-activate the baking powder and you will end up with a tough and flat bread.
Fold in walnuts or raisins if desired.
Spoon batter into greased (or use non-stick cooking spray) loaf pan.
To make the streusel topping, first cut cold butter into small pieces into medium bowl.
Add the rest of the streusel ingredients.
Using a pastry blender or fork, cut in ingredients until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Sprinkle over batter and bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
While the Pumpkin Bread is cooking, take a walk in the beautiful Crisp Fall weather.
By the time you come in, the Pumpkin Bread will be ready to take out of the oven.
Cool 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely.
Slice and serve!
