Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread
Pumpkin bread – one of my most favourite things to make and enjoy during autumn/fall time. Bonus if it’s stuffed full of melty chocolate chips!
This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread is deliciously moist and dense, it’s LOADED with pumpkin puree and chocolate chips, and is perfectly spiced with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.
You just cannot beat a slice of warm pumpkin bread for breakfast on a chilly autumn morning with a hot cup of tea or coffee…
Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make this bread. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Plain/all-purpose flour
- Baking soda
- Ground cinnamon
- Ground ginger
- Ground nutmeg
- Ground cloves
- Large eggs
- Light brown sugar
- Canned pumpkin puree: NOT pumpkin pie filling.
- Vegetable oil
- Vanilla extract
- Chocolate chips: You can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet.
How to make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread
To make this pumpkin bread, simply start by whisking together the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and brown sugar until thick and well combined.
Add the pumpkin puree, oil, and vanilla extract, and whisk until combined.
Add the dry ingredients in thirds and fold in until just combined – do not overmix. Fold in the chocolate chips.
The mixture will be VERY thick and somewhat lumpy.
Spoon the batter into a 9×5-inch loaf pan lined with parchment paper and spread out evenly.
Bake for about 60 – 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean with no pumpkin batter.
Leave to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
