Pumpkin Bread and Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel Topping

Just as soon as the calendar flipped to October I predictably started craving all things pumpkin. 

Today's recipe is a twofer because this one recipe makes either pumpkin bread, muffins, or both.

Pumpkin Bread and Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel Topping

Choose whichever form of baked good you prefer and this one recipe will be all that you need.  If you are like me, you'll choose to make a loaf of pumpkin bread and a dozen streusel-topped muffins and get the best of both worlds.

Start Your Day with a Slice of Pumpkin Bread

I chose to make my pumpkin bread without the streusel topping and the muffins with the streusel topping. That's because this recipe started as my mom's recipe for pumpkin bread and she always made it without the streusel topping.  

I prefer my pumpkin bread without the crunchy streusel topping because that's the way I had it growing up.   The streusel topping is my contribution to the recipe and I really like it on the pumpkin muffins.

The Reasons You'll love this Pumpkin Bread and Muffin Recipe

The recipe provides enough streusel topping to top two loaves of bread, twenty-four muffins or one loaf of bread, and one dozen muffins.  The topping is not required but the sweet crunch is a very nice addition.  The bread and muffins will be delicious if you choose not to use the topping.

Chopped walnuts and raisins add a nice texture to the pumpkin bread and muffins.  If you are a fan of raisins you may want to add a few more than the recipe calls for.  I prefer a light distribution of raisins in the bread and muffins so I'm not overwhelmed by the sweet burst the raisins provide.

Celebrate fall holidays with muffins. Go ahead and have some fun with some festive cupcake liners for your muffins.  I chose orange Halloween liners for this batch.  I'm going to mix it up by making a batch with these fun liners, too.

Each serving without the streusel topping is 255 calories.  With the streusel topping, each serving is 325 calories.  

Both the bread and the muffins freeze well, so it makes sense so go ahead and make a batch to eat and a batch for the freezer.  You'll be happy you did.
