Pumpkin Walnut Bread with Streusel - Instructions
Preheat the oven to 350 F with the rack positioned in the bottom third of the oven. Butter a 9" x 5"
To make the streusel: Stir together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a small mixing
bowl. Using a pastry blender or 2 forks, cut in the butter until it creates pea-sized crumbs. Set aside.
To make the bread: In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter, sugar,
pumpkin, milk, eggs and vanilla until combined.
In another mixing bowl, sift together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, ginger, nutmeg and baking
powder. Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and mix with a rubber spatula just until combined.
Do not over mix. Gently fold in the chopped toasted walnuts. Spoon half the batter into the prepared
loaf pan. Spread the streusel over the batter and cover with the remaining batter. Place the walnut
halves over the surface of the bread.
