Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

  • Yield 24 servings

"I've baked this fragrant bread for years. It's different with the combination of cloves and chocolate - and is a perfect choice for holiday gift giving—when I can get the loaves away from my family."


1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
3 eggs
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
1/2 cup milk or water
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease four 6 x 3-inch mini loaf pans.
  2. Combine the brown sugar, granulated sugar, butter, and eggs in a large bowl. Using a mixer at medium-high speed, beat until creamy.
  3. Add the pumpkin, milk, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cloves and beat at low speed until smooth.
  4. Stir in the flour until just blended. Fold in the chips. Pour the batter into the prepared pans.
  5. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until a wooden pick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool completely on wire racks.
