This quick bread blends chocolate and nuts with the flavor of pumpkin for a tasty treat! It has made multiple appearances on Wingin’ It.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/3 c milk (or water)
1/2 tsp vanilla
6 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 1/3 c sugar, or 1 c. sugar and 1/3 c. packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 c pumpkin puree
½ c chopped walnuts or pecans
½ c semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350ºF and butter a 9 X 5 inch loaf pan

Whisk together dry ingredients and in a separate bowl combine the milk and vanilla. In a large bowl, beat the butter until creamy. Gradually add the sugar to the butter while beating at high speed. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then add pumpkin puree and mix in on low speed until just blended.

Next, add the flour in 3 parts, alternating with the milk mixture in 2 parts. Beat on low speed, or use a spatula or wooden spoon, scrapping the sides of the bowl until the batter is smooth. Add 1/2 c. each of chopped walnuts (or pecans) and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Scrape into the bread pan and spread evenly. Bake for about 60 minutes, and check for doneness with a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf, which will remain clean upon removal when fully cooked.
