Fantastic Fall Recipe: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread!

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, and I've been trying to decide between a bunch of recipes that I have for what I want to bring for Thanksgiving dinner! One of my favorites is pumpkin chocolate chip bread, so I thought I would share the recipe with y'all!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread
(the picture does not do it justice at all!)
2.5 cups white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 cups sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. salt
1 can pumpkin puree (15 oz.)
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
2/3 cup water
semi-sweet chocolate chips

-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
-Grease your loaf pan. This recipe makes 2 loaves in a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan or you can also use mini loaf pans and fill accordingly
-Mix the flours, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together.
-In a separate bowl, mix the pumpkin, oil, eggs, and water until well mixed and add to dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
-Add chocolate chips. The recipe recommends a cup but let's be mix usually ends up with most of a bag
-Bake for 60-70 minutes until a knife or toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean. Sometimes it takes my bread a little longer than 70 minutes to bake completely. Put the bread on a wire rack to cool completely. Or eat it out of the pan like I do :)

It's amazing at room temperature and warmed up with butter. SO good!

And while I'm on the topic of Thanksgiving, check out Zoe's November collar and bandana! She wears the collar now but the we are saving the bandana for Thanksgiving weekend.

Work it girl.

I'd love to know some of your favorite recipes for the holidays! I love baking so do share!

  1. Omg. That looks so good. I would share a recipe, but I haven't baked anything in ages. Mainly because college apt kitchens suck. I wish I could have some. If I find a good one, I'll be sure to let you know.

  2. Your dog looks stinkin' cute. And that bread looks deliciousss. Melted butter makes even the best things taste even better. :)
