Pumpkin Bread with Tangerine Streusel

It’s been a couple of weeks and I’ve been itching for more pumpkin – it was time for another pumpkin bread. The boys and I love having yummy breads for breakfast, but it can take so long to make in the morning. So I made this bread tonight and we will enjoy it tomorrow without the wait!

I looked to a couple recipes for the inspiration for this bread, but thought I’d jazz it up a little with some tangerine zest. Let me tell you – I had never had pumpkin with tangerine before, but oh. my. gosh. it is awesome! (Okay, so I know this is supposed to be for breakfast tomorrow, but I had to try it!) The tangerine in the batter adds just a little flavor enhancement, but the tangerine in the streusel takes this over the edge. The bread is very moist and the crunch of the streusel is the perfect compliment. Do yourself a favor and try this one out – you will not be sorry!

Pumpkin Bread

Dry Ingredients
1 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cloves
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar

Wet Ingredients
1 15-oz can pumpkin
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp tangerine zest (from 1 tangerine)

Streusel Topping
2 tbsp butter, softened
4 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp tangerine zest (from 1 tangerine)

1/4 tsp ginger

1 tsp sugar (to finish)

1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a loaf pan.
2.) In a medium sized bowl, mix together all dry ingredients. Set aside.
3.) Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer), blend wet ingredients until well combined. Slowly add dry ingredients until fully incorporated. Pour into loaf pan.
4.) In a small bowl, combine streusel topping ingredients and mix well with a fork. Sprinkle the batter with the streusel, making sure it is evenly distributed. Finish with a dusting of sugar.
5.) Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

I had the best little helper tonight!

Trick to greasing a dish – use room temp butter, hold it in a paper towel and rub it all over. Then pour some flour in the pan and move it around until covers the entire surface. Works like a charm!
