White Chocolate Pumpkin Bread with Crunchy Streusel Topping

Guess whaaaat????  The Walking Dead returns on October 12th!!  Who else is obsessed with that show?

I started watching it back in February, watched 43 episodes in just a few days and it is my absolute favorite show right now.  

I decided to make some fabulous bread to celebrate.  Don't you celebrate when your favorite show will be returning in 8 days? hehe!

This Pumpkin Bread is so soft and tender and the streusel topping is sweet, buttery and crunchy.

The white chocolate chips dissolve into the bread and you get little pockets of creamy goodness.

This makes an awesome breakfast on day 2 :)

"The Mr." who pretends he doesn't like pumpkin even loved this recipe.  It took him a day or two to finally try a slice, but when he did, he said, "mmm . . .  this is really good"

1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
pinch of ground clove, opt.
2 eggs
1 c. canned pumpkin puree
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. light brown sugar, packed
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. vegetable or canola oil

Streusel Topping:
2 1/2 Tbl. light brown sugar
1/2 Tbl. all-purpose flour
1/2 Tbl. unsalted butter, cold
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.  In a separate bowl, combine eggs, canned pumpkin, sugar, brown sugar, milk, oil and vanilla.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, along with the white chocolate chips and stir until just combined and no streaks of flour remain.  Pour batter into a well-greased (or line with parchment) 9x5-inch loaf pan.  Top with streusel.  Bake for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then remove to a wire rack and cool completely.  

For the Streusel Topping: Combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt.  Add the cold butter and using your clean hands, rub ingredients together until it resembles coarse sand.
