  • 3/4 whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup of turbinado sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 -1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground all-spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Wet ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 cups roasted pumpkin
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/3 cup natural Bulgarian yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the streusel:

  • 1/2 cup Unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/8 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons organic Matcha powder
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped pecans
  • 6 tablespoons butter room temperature.

Instructions

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven at 375F
  2. Prepare the matcha streusel, with a fork, combine all the ingredients with the softened butter until the mixture resembles a coarse lumpy dough. refrigerate while you prepare the rest…
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients. Whisk.
  4. In a medium-size bowl combine all wet ingredients, mix well until well combined.
  5. Combine wet into dry and fold until well incorporated being careful of not over mixing the batter.
  6. Butter up a 10″x 5″ loaf pan lined up with a piece of parchment paper long enough to hang about 4-5 inches on each side. (See picture below)
  7. Pour batter into the mold and cover completely with the matcha streusel mixture. Lightly press so the crumbs stay attached to the top.
  8. Bake at 350F for the first 30 min.- Check your bread at 30 minutes mark and tent it with a piece of aluminum foil shiny side up, to prevent the streusel to over-brown. Lower the temperature to 325F and bake for another 25-30 minutes.
  9. Passed the 50 minutes mark, check near the center with a toothpick to check for doneness. Toothpick should come out clean with a few moist crumbs attached.
  10. Remove from oven and cool it on a rack for 20 minutes, before slicing.
  11. Once cool, slice it and enjoy!!!

Substitutuions:

  1. Any combination of oils like: melted coconut oil, canola oil, will work. 

    For the sugar: use a combination of coconut sugar and turnbinado, or brown sugar and turbinado, always use half and half to obtain a better crumb.

    For Eggs you can make a vegan egg using 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds and 3 tablespoons of water. Mix this well until frothy, this amount will make the equivalent of 1 egg. 


Recipe Notes

Notes: Store the bread on a piece of parchment paper and plastic wrap. It tastes better the next day!!!.. Keep it safe and away from temptation… It will last for about a week, no need to refrigerate. This recipe will work for muffins. Divide the batter into cupcake molds lined with cupcake liners, fill up a bit over 1/2 way and add 1 heaping tablespoon of matcha streusel, you will need to make a double batch of the streusel. Bake at 325-350F for about 20-25 minutes.
