A little sweet and a little spicy, this pumpkin bread is the perfect combination of both. It’s a taste of fall with a sprinkling of chocolate chips to take it to the next level!


Delicious pumpkin bread with just the right balance of spice and dotted with chocolate chips. It is a fun fall treat that is sure to be a family favorite at your house like it is at ours.  Served for breakfast, at tea time or a simple dessert it is great any time of day!

Hasn’t pumpkin week been delicious so far?  Have you had a chance to click around and check out some of the recipes?

 I just love the change of season (unless that change is into winter!)  I love how after wanting to hibernate for months, all of the sudden things get warm and green in the spring.  I love all of the fresh fruits and veggies.

But by the time mid-September comes around there is always a part of me that is ready to move on.  By then the novelty of shorts has left and the feeling of taking a steam bath every time you open the door has worn on your last nerve.

Those tomatoes that we were anxiously awaiting in the first weeks of July have turned into more of a chore than a treasure.  That’s when it happens.


Mother Nature sees our frustration and gives us those first few cooler day.  A sign that fall is coming and it is time to break out the soup pots, casserole dishes and of course the PUMPKIN! Woohoo!

For as long as I can remember, my mom made pumpkin bread with chocolate chips.  It has always been a favorite in our family.  It is like a taste of childhood and a harbinger of fall all in one bite.


Of course it doesn’t have to be fall in order to enjoy a slice.  A nice slice would be good any time of year.  Luckily this recipe makes 2 loaves.  With a family as big as ours, we never had an issue eating both loaves in no time at all.

But not every family has 8 hungry mouths hanging around. So you can keep one and give the other away.  You can also freeze a loaf for eating later if you’d rather.

Yield: 24 Servings (2 9" loaves)

I'm so glad you shared this. I am making it this morning in a bundt pan. Since my kitchen is being remodeled I'm so happy that this is easy to make without a mixer. Can't wait to smell it baking. This one is for Chloe and her roommates at college. I think she will share-she loves this bread.

We love making breads like this to eat for snacks and breakfast. I usually make banana nut bread, but pumpkin is great for fall. Thanks for sharing your recipe on Merry Monday.

Aren't quick breads like this the best? We love banana bread too, but pumpkin is perfect this time of year.

Okay, if I have to choose one week out of the year to move in, I think it would be pumpkin week! You are so creative with it, and this sounds so good. I would have it for breakfast, lunch and dessert. Warm for dessert topped with vanilla ice cream and caramel! Thanks for the recipe, I bet this will be one of our favorites too.
