So moist and tender with fantastic flavor. This recipe makes one bread or three mini loaves. I made three small individuals to wrap and give as gifts. I just love the taste of this with sugar and nuts as I did...or use your favorite glaze. Or nothing at all... Enjoy! My photos

How To Make ~ pumpkin bread streusel ~ so good

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 325 degree F. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
  • 2
    You can use a mixer for this recipe, but I mix it by hand. That helps not to over mix. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves into a mixing bowl.
  • 3
    In a large mixing bowl, beat the pumpkin, oil, sugar, and salt together until well blended.
  • 4
    Beat the eggs in one at a time, making sure each egg is completely incorporated before adding the next one. Scrape the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  • 5
    Add the flour and mix until just combined. You don’t want to over beat the batter as it will result in a tougher crumb. Then beat for 5 to 10 seconds until smooth.
  • 6
    Pour the batter into the loaf pan and tap the pan on the counter to help flatten the batter out.
  • 7
    I sprinkled with sugar/cinnamon and pecans. If using sugar and nut topping : I used about 3 tablespoons of sugar..1/4 tsp cinnamon - 1/2 cup pecans, chopped.
  • 8
    Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven to cooling rack. Let set for 20 minutes.

    Flip bread out onto cooking rack, turn the cake back right side up and cool completely. Enjoy!
