Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and lower your middle oven rack to the lower position. *Under the middle of the oven, but not the bottom position.Coat a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray or a light amount of oil.
Mix the streusel using brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter. Set aside in the refrigerator.
In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and dried orange peel.
Whisk the dry ingredients to evenly distribute throughout the flour.
In a medium mixing bowl add the sugar, light or dark brown sugar, pumpkin puree, melted and cooled butter, eggs, and vanilla extract.
Mix the wet ingredients together until you have what looks like a thicker pumpkin puree.
Add the wet ingredients into the large bowl of dry ingredients and stir to combine.
Transfer the pumpkin bread batter into your prepared loaf pan and smooth the top, tamping the pan down on the counter if needed.
Top the batter with streusel then bake in your preheated oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour. The bread is done when a knife inserted into the thickest portion of bread comes out clean.
Remove the baked pumpkin streusel bread when done, and cool in the pan on a wire cooling rack for 15-20 minutes before serving. Transfer the loaf to the wire cooling rack and allow to cool completely before storing.
