Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Another pumpkin recipe…have I overwhelmed anyone yet? I can’t help it – I love baking with pumpkin, and this recipe is no exception. Chocolate chip pumpkin bread…doesn’t it just sound good? I got this recipe from my friend Katie, who makes it every fall. Everywhere she takes it people say how great it is and ask for the recipe. It’s moist and full of great pumpkin flavor, and the chocolate chips add a wonderful chocolately touch, making it taste more like dessert than bread. I love storing it in the refrigerator and eating it cold, but hot out of the oven is great too. I definitely recommend this recipe if you’re looking for a great tried and true pumpkin bread.
