Pumpkin Bread

Because we have so much pumpkin, I thought I'd try making pumpkin bread. It was very easy and tasty. It's especially easy if you have a standing mixer.

1-1/2 C sugar
1 tsp soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp salt
1-2/3 C flour
1/2 C oil
1/2 C water
1 C pumpkin
2 eggs
1 C semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Mix all ingredients well.

Pour into greased loaf pan or pans.

  • Large loaf pan: 1-1/2 hours
  • Small loaf pans: 30-35 minutes

Check with toothpick. Cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove and finish cooling on rack.

Great with butter or frosted with cream cheese frosting.

One Crazy Girl's Note: Although the chocolate chips taste great in the bread, they all sank to the bottom during cooking. Next time, I will try chopping them up a bit before putting them in the batter. Or using mini chips instead of regular sized ones.
