Step 1

Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and mash together with a fork until the mixture resembles wet sand. Set aside while you make the bread batter.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray two 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pans with nonstick cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and baking soda together. Add the pumpkin, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves to a large saucepan. Set over medium heat and cook, stirring almost constantly, until the mixture has reduced to 1 1/2 cups (it took about 9 minutes for me). Remove the pot from the heat and add both sugars, the canola oil and cream cheese. Stir until combined (but not completely incorporated, there will still be clumps of cream cheese). Let stand for 5 minutes, then whisk until the mixture is completely homogeneous.

Combine the eggs and buttermilk in a large measuring cup and whisk to incorporate. Add to the pumpkin mixture, whisking until combined. Add the dry ingredients to the pan and fold them in with a rubber spatula. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour into loaf pan and set aside.

For streusel, combine butter, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over batter and bake for 55-60 minutes. Let it cool for 10 minutes then turn out onto rack and cool completely.
