    INSTRUCTIONS

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray.

    MAKE BREAD BATTER

    Beat pumpkin, brown sugar, sugar, egg, melted butter, sherry or rum, oil and vanilla in a mixing bowl on medium speed until creamy and smooth.
    Whisk whole-wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Add dry mixture to the pumpkin mixture and gently blend on slow until just combined. Spread batter in loaf pan.

    MAKE STREUSEL TOPPING

    Mix oats, 2 tablespoons all purpose flour, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, softened butter and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bow until crumbly. Top the batter with the streusel topping.

    BAKE BREAD

    Bake until the center is puffed and set. It will spring back when lightly touched and a toothpick inserted in the center will come out with moist crumbs attached, 55 to 60 minutes. To remove from the oven, slide onto a pizza peel or un-rimmed baking sheet to handle. Let cool completely on wire rack.
