Tuesday's Recipe - Pumpkin Bread

I like to double this recipe and prepare two loaves at once.  It's a great fall recipe and it sure doesn't last long in our house.

1 2/3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/3 cup butter (softened)
1 1/3 cups sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup pumpkin puree (for a double batch, use one regular 15 oz can of pumpkin)
1/3 cup cooking sherry (or water, if you prefer)

Cream butter with sugar until fluffy.  Add vanilla, eggs and pumpkin.  Beat well.  Add flour and other dry ingredients.  Add sherry.  Blend until combined.  Pour into greased loaf pan.

Streusel Topping
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp butter
3 1/2 Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp ginger

Mix all streusel ingredients together.  Stir until crumbly.  Sprinkle evenly over batter.  Bake at 350 for 50 minutes.
