a new "must try" recipe
I baked a triple batch of this bread on Friday. It's my first time trying it, and it has been voted a total success, hands down. Tis the season for a little pumpkin in the diet...
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread
2½ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
3½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
¾ cup whole milk
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
1 cup of chocolate chips (floured)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease and flour one 9x5x3 inch loaf pan or two 8½x4½x2½ inch loaf pans.
Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl except the chocolate chips.
Add the chocolate chips to the pumpkin bread batter.
Pour the chocolate chip pumpkin bread batter into the loaf pan(s).
Place in the oven and bake for one hour or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Note: I used 1 cup of Pumpkin Pie Filling instead of the pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spices. I also made muffins which baked to perfection in just 20 minutes.
