Pumpkin Streusel Bread

Pumpkin is a great vegetable. It can be used for a variety of meals. A really nice breakfast or treat is pumpkin bread. I do love it served with a brisk cup of tea. I love the aroma of the bread while it bakes. This recipe is easy and only needs 2 bowls. Only 1, if you omit the streusel topping. I usually make it with raisins (soaked in warm water for a few minutes and then drained) and chopped nuts. Since it makes 2 loaves, I sometimes put nuts and raisins in one and then nuts and chocolate chips or cranberries, or whatever, in the other.  Test for doneness after they have baked for  45 minutes, just to make sure not to overbake (don’t want to dry these morsels out!).
