Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Every year with the holidays approaching, I get cravings for pumpkin flavors... It is just such a delicious taste! I will always remember feeling deprived of these delicious flavors before I had my little baby B last holiday season (Dang gestational diabetes!)... but my wonderful sister made these for breakfast on the first morning home from the hospital and I was in absolute heaven...Any time I even think about making this bread, I practically salivate.

So DELICIOUS! This is one of those things that I can just whip up and take to a luncheon, or if you need a small gift for someone, PERFECT! I love this stuff... and I know you will too
Preheat oven to 350
2 c. sugar
3 c. flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1 tsp nutmeg
1 cup oil
3 eggs
1 cup chocolate chips
2 cups pumpkin puree
(I just use the small can of pumpkin 15 oz...even though its a little less than 2 cups!)

Mix together oil, eggs and pumpkin. Add everything except flour and chocolate chips. Blend well. Add flour 1 cup at a time. Last, add chocolate chips and stir in by hand.

I love to make these in my mini-loaf pan, but I realize that not everyone has one (I would recommend you get one! They are absolutely WONDERFUL!)Fill whatever pan you are using about 2/3 full-ish...
Bake at 350F
Here are the approximate baking times for different size loaves...

Muffins- 14-16 minutes
Mini loaf pan- 25 minutes
Larger loaf- 1 hour

These really are approximate times... I always have to check mine with a toothpick and when that toothpick comes out clean.... Its done! We love making these... and we eat them for Breakfast every day until they are gone... SO YUMMY!

I LOVE pumpkin bread and this is still, hands down, the best recipe I've ever had...got it from Kat. Love, I think! YEARS ago...
And I love my mini-loaf pan so much! They are so adorable and fun to give to each of the kids.

I loved the bread. The first time I followed the recipe. The second time I added walnuts.
