Pumpkin Bread

Here is a Pumpkin Bread I have made a few times this holiday season. This picture is of one I made today for friends coming up for coffee and dessert. I made a cream cheese frosting and put chopped nuts on top. I like it better than the Streusel topping.

Stir together until well combined:
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup water
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 tsp ginger
1 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 tsp salt
2 eggs lightly beaten
Streusel topping:
Sift together:
1/3 cup flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 2/3 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp firm margerine
Stir pumpkin mixture and flour mixture together just until mixed. Pour into greased loaf pan. Combine streusel ingredients together with a fork until crumbly and pea-sized. Sprinkle over loaf. Bake at 350f for 45 or 50 minutes.
