Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Loaf

This recipe makes 3 pumpkin chocolate chip loaves. I usually have one for our family, bring one into work or give it to a friend, and freeze one. I am in no way a baker but this recipe is nice and easy and always turns out moist and delicious.

The Grocery List

  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 3 cups of white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Baking It Up

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 9x5 inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin, oil, water, and eggs. Beat until smooth.
  3. Blend in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts.
  5. Divide mixture evenly into loaf pans.
  6. Bake for 1 hour, or until an inserted knife comes out clean. (check them at 45 mins to be safe!)
  7. Cool on wire racks before removing from pans.
