Streusel Topped Pumpkin Bread

Every year I pull out my same trusted pumpkin bread recipe from Taste of Home. But I've pinned so many recipes for pumpkin bread from Pinterest that I made myself try all of them so if it so happens I find a new favorite its a win win. 

I found this one on The Charm of Home

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 1/2 cup sifted all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda 
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Streusel Topping: optional (I added this to make it appeal to teenagers)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour 
1/4 cup butter

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease and flour 8x 5-inch loaf pan.  Beat sugar with oil till blended.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Continue beating until light and fluffy.  Then mix in pumpkin on low speed.  Add in dry ingredients on low speed and mix well. Pour into prepared pan.  For streusel topping mix till crumb texture with a pastry cutter.  Then spread topping over entire loaf.  Bake 60 minutes or until 
toothpick comes out clean.  Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan and finish cooling.

The streusel topping is a nice touch or butter, brown sugar and flower. It adds more sweetness.
