Sunday Baking = Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread


I am not much of a cook, but I do really enjoy baking.  It has been so hot here lately I haven't wanted to add heat with the oven, so I have put off the urge to bake.    Today was a day of on-off again rain, a bit cooler and felt like the perfect day to finally bake something. 

  • 2 1/2 cups white flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 16 oz cooked or canned pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
  • 1 cup oil
  • 4 eggs, beaten lightly
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 2
    Grease two (9x5 inch) loaf pans or three (8x4 inch) loaf pans.
  • 3
    Mix flours, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together in a large bowl; set aside.
  • 4
    Mix pumpkin, oil, eggs, and 2/3 cup water together and stir into dry ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • 5
    Place batter in prepared pans.
  • 6
    Bake 60 or 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Keep in mind this recipe will make a large amount of bread.  I made one large loaf  and muffins.  Jake and I cut one muffin up, taste tested it, and now the muffins are going to Jake's work tomorrow and our fellow boaters at the dock.  
This was a winner of a recipe. Check it out. They are delicious!
