+2 Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Bread Of Tasting

by Mike Futter on Oct 13, 2013 at 10:19 AM

If you've been following me Twitter, you may have seen me share pictures of my loaves. This weekend is the start of pumpkin-related baking season in my house, which means the first loaves of my pumpkin chocolate chunk bread have come out of the oven.

A number of my Twitter followers asked me to share the recipe. Though I am loathe to give away the secret to one thing that makes me special in this world, I have succumbed to their pleas. 


  • 15 oz can pumpkin
  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chunks

Here's how to make the magic happen:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottoms only of two loaf pans.
  2. Mix pumpkin, sugar, oil, vanilla, and eggs. Stir.
  3. Mix remaining ingredients except chocolate chunks. Stir
  4. Add chocolate chunks. Stir.
  5. Bake for 60 minutes. Test with toothpick. If not done, bake for additional five minutes. Let cool.

Can be served warm or cold. Good a la mode.
