"Chocolate" Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

So I had my usual recipe for Pumpkin Bread lying around and gave it to a neighbor. Then, that neighbor posted on her facebook saying "Thank you Lisa for the Chocolate Pumpkin Bread recipe!"

Immediately following were many comments asking for the "Chocolate" pumpkin bread recipe, so I thought I should deliver.

"Chocolate" Pumpkin Bread

5 eggs
1 Big can of pumpkin
3 1/2 C. sugar
1 C. oil
1 C. applesauce
4 1/2 C. Flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. soda
4 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. cloves
1 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. ginger
12 oz. chocolate chips

12 MORE oz chocolate chips and 1/2 C. heavy cream.

Mix all wet ingredients, then in a saucepan over a warm heat, melt the chocolate chips* and cream together till smooth. SLOWLY pour into the pumpkin mixture and incorporate quickly as to temper the eggs... now your batter is chocolate pumpkin!

Then mix in all dry ingredients then the OTHER bag of chocolate chips and bake at 350. Small loaf pans call for 45-50min, and large loaf pans call for 60-70 min. Fill about 2/3 full. It's trial and error, as everyone's ovens are different and they fill the pans up different amounts. So use the "knife in the middle" method and when it comes out dry they should be done. DO NOT OVER BAKE!!

Good luck.

*you could use 3/4 of the the bag of the chips to melt and mix into the batter, and use the rest to sprinkle on top of a couple of loaves....

    1. I bought the disposable ones and I think they came in packs of 4 and I had two- so EIGHT little pans.

  2. Hey, I just made this recipe....I think you forgot to add some kind of sugar. They are not sweet at all. So disappointed! Not mad, just wanted to double check your recipe. Thx!

    1. OH MY GOODNESS!! I am SO SORRY! You're completely right there are supposed to be 3 and a half cups!! I feel so horrible and wish I could make it up to you! My apologies, I will fix that right now and hope you will try it again. Man- complete fail on my part.

    2. Max Fam- I sincerely hope that my epic mistake hasn't deterred you from this site. I wish I could make it up to you..
