Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

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.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3 cups sugar

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon cloves

1 (15 ounce) can 100% pure pumpkin

2 eggs, beaten

2/3 cup water

1 cup chocolate chips, semi-sweet, milk or bittersweet

Cooking spray

In a large bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Pour melted butter, pumpkin, beaten eggs and water on top of dry ingredients. Mix until combined. Add chocolate chips and stir gently. Pour the mixture into prepared 6 mini loaf pans or 2 9×5-inch loaf pans until each is 2/3 full.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes for mini loaf pans or 65 to 70 minutes for larger pans.

Makes 6 mini loaves or 2 larger loaves.

Larger loaves make 8 servings each.
