Chocolate chip pumpkin bread

After making chocolate chip pumpkin cookies, I thought it might be fun to make a chocolate chip pumpkin bread.  So I used my favorite pumpkin bread recipe as a base, and added 2 cups of chocolate chips.  I really enjoyed the results.  Which begs the question, Is there anything that doesn’t taste good with the addition of chocolate?

This is my favorite pumpkin bread recipe with a chocolate chip upgrade!


  • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 cups chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour three 7x3 inch loaf pans.
  • In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, water and sugar until well blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger.
  • Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just blended. (I usually use the hand mixer here for a little bit because my flour mixture always clumps. I only mix it until most of the clumps are out.) Add the chocolate chips and stir until chips are evenly distributed. Pour into the prepared pans.
  • Bake for about 50 minutes in the preheated oven. Loaves are done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
