Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Loaf
Here’s a great idea for a fall themed, kids’ party food dessert table: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread. It contains two of my favorite ingredients for harvest season menus: pumpkin and chocolate. Actually chocolate is my favorite four-season ingredient for almost anything! This recipe would also be great for a family meal treat. Doesn’t it sound yummy?

PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP BREAD
- 1 and ¾ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 ¼ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 ½ cups pumpkin puree
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- ¼ cup orange juice
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F to prevent the bread from browning too soon. Spray a 9”x 5” loaf pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt together until combined. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together until combined. Whisk in the pumpkin, oil, and orange juice.
- Pour these wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently mix together. Be sure not to over mix – there will be a few lumps. Gently fold in chocolate chips, being sure to taste a few.
- Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 60-65 minutes, making sure to loosely cover the bread with aluminum foil halfway through to prevent the top from browning too much. Insert a toothpick into the center of the loaf – if it comes out clean with just a few crumbs, it is finished baking.
- Allow the bread to cool completely in the pan on a cooling rack.
- The bread will stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
- This recipe creates a very moist bread, and it is even better on day 2, if you can wait!
- It’s perfect for making ahead! After baking, this bread can be frozen for up to 3 months. Simply thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature before serving.
- You can replace the chocolate chips with pecans or walnuts.
- Use this same recipe to make muffins by simply dividing the batter into a greased muffin pan and baking for 17-20 minutes at 350 degrees F.
