  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 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°F to prevent the bread from browning too soon. Spray a 9 × 5-inch 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 them together. Be sure not to over mix, there will still be a few lumps. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
  • 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, the bread is finished baking.
  • Allow the bread to cool completely in the pan on a cooling rack.


  • Make sure you buy pure pumpkin puree rather than pumpkin pie filling at the grocery store.
  • You can use this same recipe to make muffins! Simply divide the batter into a greased muffin pan and bake for 17-20 minutes at the same temperature.
  •  Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to check your bread at the lower end of the recommended baking time.
