Pumpkin is the quintessential fall flavor. Many people wait, anxiously, for that tinge of coolness in the air to make something with pumpkin. My Mom loved this pumpkin bread recipe. It gave me great pleasure to know how much she enjoyed it. Whenever I would visit her in the fall she would ask me if I brought her pumpkin bread. I started bringing it to her regularly. It always put a smile on her face.
Originally, the recipe made 6 mini loaves but I converted it to make 2 regular size loaves. The mini loaves are perfect for gift giving or to give your guests at a dinner party to take home. I prefer using milk chocolate chips but semi-sweet or bittersweet would be good too. I do not use an electric mixer for this recipe. With the amount of sugar and flour, I find it easier to mix by hand with a wooden spoon. Less messy too.
