Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

It’s FINALLY made its way to Texas!  What, you ask?  FALL!!!!  

No, we don’t have any lovely fall foliage, no local apple orchard to visit for hot cider.  Our idea of a “pumpkin patch” is mountains of imported pumpkins stacked neatly on the grass at the Methodist church.  But, what we do have is temperatures UNDER 90 degrees….and for that, we are extremely thankful!   

We like to celebrate fall with Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread.  This is an easy recipe, great for breakfast, dessert or snack AND (here’s the best part) it makes TWO loaves!  With the holidays just around the corner that’s perfect…..one for now and one for the freezer.  Just take it out the night before and have instant breakfast for family or company.  They’ll be glad you did!  

Here’s the Recipe:

  • 1 cup butter – melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 3/4 cup flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 large can pumpkin (not pie mix)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
