Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread – delicious pumpkin bread with a perfect balance of spices and chocolate chips through out. So easy and bakes up perfectly every time!
Even though the temperatures outside still feel like summer, the fall is here and I am baking all things pumpkin. As soon as you feel like you need to break out your loaf pan and a can of pumpkin puree (don’t forget THIS spice mix!! It’s the best! ) and bake this bread. It’s crazy good and it will definitely put you in a fall baking mood. I made a few loaves and muffins all in one day! I was on a roll!
Moist pumpkin bread with the perfect balance of spices and chocolate chips through out makes for a great treat. I enjoyed a slice with my morning coffee and it was fantastic! The chocolate chips fill each slice without any of them sinking to the bottom. There is a very simple trick for that!
I always always always do that with my baked goods when adding chocolate chips. The trick is to add the chocolate chips to the dry ingredients just before mixing in the wet ingredients. Stir it the chips with flour mixture and make sure to coat them well. That prevents the chips from sinking to the bottom. Bam! Each slice filled with chocolate from top to bottom!
I also like to reserve a few chips to sprinkle on top of the batter, just before placing the loaf pan in the oven.
This recipe is my go to for a pumpkin bread and it always bakes up beautifully! We are talking domed top with a slight crack, moist with a nice crumb that let’s you cut nice slices without the whole loaf falling apart. It’s perfect!
