Pumpkin Bread with Cinnamon-Pecan Streusel

From the Kitchen of Darby Hawley
I have been dying to get more pumpkin recipes going in the kitchen.  It’s killing me that it’s already October and I’ve only opened 2 canes of Libby’s Pumpkin.  
Darby, get with the program! 
Since yesterday morning it felt a little like fall in Houston (it was 59 degrees for the first time in over 6 months!), I got my pumpkin boo-tay into the kitchen!  See if this recipe looks familiar to you:

Ingredients for Bread:
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup buttermilk (if you don’t have any mix 1 tbs white vinegar with 1 cup milk, then measure out 1/3 cup)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup pumpkin (I always use Libby’s, because my mamma always used Libby’s)
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Ingredients for Topping:
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbs all purpose flour
3 tbs butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped pecans
2 tbs sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray one 9x5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Blend together the eggs, buttermilk, oil and pumpkin.
  3. Whisk together the sugar, flour, baking soda and salt. Add to pumpkin mixture and stir in pecans. Mix well.
  4. Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake 1 hour.  While the bread is baking, mix together all of the ingredients for the topping.  After the bread has baked for an hour place the topping on the top of the bread and bake for 20 more minutes.

This is my banana bread recipe, that I just substituted pumpkin for banana, and everything else was the same.
So really this is two recipes in one for ya!
How’s that for a delicious way to start the week?
I’m having a slice with my morning coffee right now and it’s delicious!
Don’t be jealous though, go make this!!!!!
Happy Monday friends!

Looks delicious! Especially that topping! :) I definitely need to get more pumpkin recipes out now that it's fall. I haven't once yet - it's just to hot and still feels like summer to me. I'm more than ready for a change in season!

I want this in my life, too! Also, you must be blessed with fabulous metabolism and I am infinitely jealous! Or else you are a secret gym rat in which case I think we all need a post on Darby's Workout Tips...
