y'all - you know i'm not a baker right? it's not my 'thing' in the least. to be honest i have attempted a box-cake before and had to toss it in the trash. see, i told you i'm not a baker!
so yesterday when i attempted this pumpkin bread i impressed myself!

of course there were a few messes.. ie.. almost a cup of flour on the floor and all over my shoes, a coffee break was needed but this bread turned out to be the best pumpkin bread i ever did make!

here is the bread recipe i followed and ingredients needed:
adopted from simplyrecipes

1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup (canned) pumpkin puree
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c applesauce
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 c water
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp apple pie spice
(only because i picked up the wrong bottle off the shelf!)

and here is the best part... 
the streusel topping you just have to make!
this is the recipe i followed and ingredients needed:

1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c all-purpose flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 c melted butter
