One of my favorite things to make during the holiday season is this amazing Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread. I’ve been making it for years ever since I had an aha moment while eating traditional pumpkin bread topped with melted chocolate chips- why not combine the two? So simple and yet so delicious. This year I am making mini loaves for our neighbors as a holiday treat- if I can keep the kids (and Matt) from eating them all before they get delivered. The wonderful thing about this recipe is how versatile it can be- you can serve it as a dessert, as a appetizer at a party, or even for breakfast on that morning when nobody’s alarm clock went off on time….or is that just my house? Some nights when it’s been a particularly rough day I even drizzle hot fudge over top of a slice of this bread….and then I close my eyes while I savor every bite. It’s just that good.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups canned pure pumpkin
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups canola oil
6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. In large bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon.
2. In another bowl, beat eggs, pumpkin, sugar, and oil until smooth.
3. Stir pumpkin mixture into dry ingredients just until moistened.
4. Fold in the chocolate chips.
5. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans.
6. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
7. Cool for 10 minutes.
8. Transfer loaves to wire rack to cool completely.
Seriously, so good y’all. Matt requested several to take to his office holiday party and I can’t count how many times I’ve been asked for the recipe. It’s so easy to make but it tastes like you slaved over it! I always heat the slices before serving, it melts the chocolate chips slightly and the taste will just make your tongue happy.
