This good pumpkin chocolate chip bread is loaded with chocolate chips. Fluffy and tremendous moist, it tastes even higher the following day!

Yr after 12 months, pumpkin season after pumpkin season, and with all of the variations of pumpkin chocolate chip bread available on the market, that is the one recipe I flip to.

It has been a tried-and-true favourite for over ten years.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Batter

This recipe is very simple.

For the moist components:

  • Canned pumpkin
  • Eggs
  • Sugar (not a moist ingredient, however we’re including it right here)
  • Oil or a combo of oil and applesauce
  • Water, milk or buttermilk (scrumptious any which manner)

As soon as the moist components are properly mixed, the dry components are added. Nothing finicky right here – simply your primary flour + heat fall spices + baking soda and salt.

Bowl with pumpkin, eggs, milk; bowl with pumpkin batter and chocolate chips.


It pains me to even say this out loud, however the chocolate chips are technically non-compulsory.

As in, you may go away them out if you need a easy unadorned pumpkin bread…however I don’t essentially suppose that’s the appropriate factor to do. 😉

Additionally, you may lower the sugar (see the observe within the recipe) and in addition mess around with utilizing all entire wheat flour instead of the all-purpose flour or a mix of half entire wheat flour and half all-purpose flour.

I desire utilizing a lighter wheat flour on this bread, like laborious or delicate white wheat flour, kamut or einkhorn. It helps the bread keep fluffy as an alternative of moody and dense.

Bread Pan Sizes

The batter may be break up between:

  • Two 9X5-inch pans
  • Two 8 1/2 X 4 1/2-inch pans plus 1-2 mini loaf pans
  • 6-8 mini loaf pans

The particular pan measurement doesn’t have an effect on the style end result of the bread, however I’ve discovered that the pumpkin bread domes barely higher within the smaller (8 1/2-inch or mini) pans.
