So I found this super easy Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Loaf recipe (makes 3 loaves, I made 2 loaves and then lil mini-loaves). I'm not even a big pumpkin fan! but with chocolate chips...mmmmm...it was worth it! I brought a loaf to work, and seriously, my co-workers were really impressed and they totally attacked it (didn't even bother slicing, just tore into it).
Choco-chip Pumpkin Loaf!
INGREDIENTS (Recipe from All Recipes)
3 cups white sugar
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
1 cup vegetable oil (I used Canola)
2/3 cup water
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional) -i didn't put any in
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 1 pound size coffee cans, or three 9×5 inch loaf pans.
In a large bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin, oil, water, and eggs. Beat until smooth. Blend in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts. Fill cans 1/2 to 3/4 full.
Bake for 1 hour, or until an inserted knife comes out clean. Cool on wire racks before removing from cans or pans.
