Why Make This Chocolate Pumpkin Bread

This easy pumpkin bread is fool proof. it’s easy to whip up, you can customize the mix -ins. I add chocolate chips and sometimes walnuts. This is kid approved, full of seasonal pumpkin flavors and lots of warm fall spices mixed and baked right into it.

This fluffy moist bread pairs perfectly with an easy icing or a swipe of creamy butter. It’s dairy free too! Also try my Nutella Puff Pastries for a sweet treat (yum!)

Steps To Make This Recipe

Easy Pumpkin Bread Steps to make.

Step One. Set oven to 350º. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger) salt. In a separate large bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, brown sugar, oil, milk, pumpkin purée.

Step Two. Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients, being careful to not over mix the batter but ensuring everything is evenly mixed. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour batter into a parchment lined loaf pan.

Step Three. Bake for 45 – 55 minutes in the center rack. Since oven temps vary greatly, be sure to check the center of the bread around 45 minutes by sticking a toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean with no raw batter it is done. Check every 5 minutes from 45 – 60 min. Let the a cool completely before drizzling in 2 ingredient icing (if using) and transferring onto a plate and slicing.
