Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

I love baking in the fall.  I have an entire Fall is in the Air Pinterest Board full of recipes, crafts, seasonal decorating, and activities.  One of my favorite things to bake with this time of year is pumpkin!  My preschooler was shocked to learn that people actually eat pumpkins.  She loved this chocolate chip pumpkin bread when she tried it, even though she insists it is really cake and not bread.  Who are we kidding?  It does in fact taste a lot like dessert!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread


1 can pumpkin
3 cups flour
1 2/3 cups sugar
2/3 cups vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
1 cup chocolate chips
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease bottoms of two 8 1/2 inch loaf pans.
2. In large bowl, stir together pumpkin, sugar, oil, vanilla, and eggs.  Add in remaining ingredients.  Pour into pans.
3. Bake 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes on wire rack.  Remove from pan and cool completely before slicing.
4. Enjoy!

Notes: If you don't want to add chocolate chips, you could substitute chopped nuts or raisins.  This pumpkin bread is also delicious on its own if you don't have anything to add in on hand.
