I spend 9 months of the year waiting for fall.  Waiting to wear boots, big cozy scarves, get pumpkin spice lattes.. and basically all things pumpkin.  I learned how to make this streusel pumpkin bread from a Paula Deen cookbook. I like to pull it out every fall during pumpkin season. It’s a perfect fall breakfast, dessert, or snack. Best enjoyed with a hot cup of coffee.

  • 1 c pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 c vegetable oil

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a loaf pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Lightly grease. Set aside.
