  • 3/4 cup white sugar 150 g
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, light or dark 90 g
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil 95 g
  • 2 eggs, room temperature

To make the streusel:

  • Mix together all streusel ingredients until crumbs form. Keep the streusel in the fridge while you prepare the rest of the recipe.

For the bread:

  • Prepare a 9x5 inch loaf pan by lightly buttering and lining with parchment paper. Heat oven to 350 F (180C).
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the canned pumpkin, the white sugar, brown sugar, oil, eggs, water and vanilla, until smooth and combined.
  •  In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt. Add the dry ingredients all at once to the wet, and stir until just combined without over mixing.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Evenly scatter the top with the prepared streusel.
  • Bake for 60-65 until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool for 30 minutes, then remove from the pan, and top with glaze.

Prepare the glaze: (optional)

  • Whisk together the powdered sugar and maple syrup until smooth, then drizzle on the top of the bread. Enjoy bread warm or room temperature!
