Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Guys, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but it’s fall. Lovely, leafy, crisp fall! I love fall, if you couldn’t tell. And within this beautiful season are Halloween and Thanksgiving! Two holidays essentially dedicated to eating! Yippee! A food blogger’s dream!Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

What’s another great thing about this season? PUMPKIN. And lots of it! So I set about to create the perfect pumpkin bread recipe. Challenge accepted.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

I’ve had so many pumpkin breads in the past that just don’t do justice to the pumpkin flavor. Don’t get me wrong, they still taste good, but in my opinion something named pumpkin bread should really have pumpkin as its most prominent flavor, without a jumble of too many spices overpowering the it.

So I include small amounts of four spices in this recipe: cinnamon, allspice, ginger and nutmeg. I found that this combination of spices nicely compliments the pumpkin flavor without overpowering it.

This bread really could not be easier to make. There’s no mixer needed and it only takes about 10 minutes of hands-on time to whip together. Then you can sit back, relax and inhale the aroma of fresh pumpkin bread baking in your oven as you admire the fall colors through the window. Ahhhh, fall.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x5 loaf pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and spices in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin and sugars until combined.
  4. Add the melted butter and whisk to combine.
  5. Add the vanilla and eggs and whisk to combine.
  6. Slowly fold in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, being careful not to overstir (this will result in a tough-textured bread).
  7. Add the water and stir until combined.
  8. Finally, fold in 1/2 cup (or more if desired) chocolate chips.
  9. Spread the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  10. Bake for around 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with just a few crumbs and no batter.
  11. Allow the bread to cool completely in the pan before cutting.
