It's officially fall now, which means it's time for all things pumpkin! (Or, more accurately, it's time for some people to post about how much they love pumpkin spice everything, and for other people to post about how much they hate pumpkin spice everything.) I'm always a little on the fence with pumpkin. It's not my favorite, but I don't hate it either. I enjoy making a few pumpkin recipes every fall, and then letting it go until the next fall. This pumpkin streusel bread is one that I make every year, and it's always a hit! It's so moist and tender, with the most delicious cinnamon streusel topping. It's everything that pumpkin bread should be!

This recipe makes enough for two loaves, so it's great for sharing with a friend or a neighbor! It also works well made into muffins instead of two big loaves. If you're baking the batter in a muffin tin, it should make about 24 muffins, and you'll need to adjust the baking time to 18-20 minutes. This bread is sweet enough for dessert, but feels wholesome enough for breakfast. I mean, it's got applesauce and pumpkin puree, so it's basically just a vegetable, right? :) However you choose to enjoy it, it's always delicious!

Pumpkin Streusel Bread

for the bread:
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
15 ounces pumpkin puree
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup apple sauce
3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

for the streusel:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 350. Line two loaf pans with foil or parchment, spray with cooking spray, and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the oil, apple sauce, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, pumpkin, and water. With the mixer running, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix until just combined.

To make the streusel, whisk together the brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Pour the melted butter into the brown sugar mixture, and mix until combined. Divide the batter between the prepared pans, then sprinkle the streusel mixture over the top. Bake 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack.
