  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar lightly packed
  • 1 ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 1 cup chocolate chips semi-sweet


  • 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.


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.
