    Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

    pumpkin bread recipe

    This isn't a recipe I've been making for years, but it's one I definitely plan on making for years to come. I found the recipe at My Baking Addiction (she adapted it from and immediately had to try it myself. The bread filled the house with a mouthwatering aroma as it baked and ended up tasting even better than it smelled. This recipe makes three loaves -- enough for sharing with friends, family, coworkers. I plan to bake up a few batches for the annual holiday cookie swap with my extended family!

    3 cups white sugar

    1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree

    1 cup vegetable oil

    2/3 cup water

    4 eggs

    2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

    3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

    1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

    2 teaspoons ground nutmeg

    2 teaspoons baking soda

    1 1/2 teaspoons salt

    1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour three 9x5 inch loaf pans.

    In a large bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin, oil, water, vanilla and eggs. Beat until smooth. Blend in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt. Fold in chocolate chips.

    Bake for 1 hour, or until middle no longer feels soft. Cool on wire racks before removing from pans.

    Make 3 loaves.

    My mouth is literally watering right now. Soooo...since I'm not a baker, how much would I have to pay you to get you to bake this for me? <wink>

    Maybe I'll just have to share a loaf with you (for free) next time I bake them!
