Pumpkin Bread

Friends, I am so particular about my baked goods and am so impressed by all the amazing baked good recipes I’ve tried this fall! Including this awesome pumpkin bread from Sally’s Baking Addiction. 

We love sweet breads so much in our house that we keep some frozen for the season- and it’s still so good when you warm it up. If you want to freeze this bread, wait for it to cool, wrap it tightly with saran wrap, and store it in a deep freezer (or one that doesn’t get open often).


​Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree 
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil, canola oil, or melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup  semi-sweet chocolate chips
Maybe, just maybe, I had some pureed butternut squash lying around and not enough pumpkin puree, so I mixed a little of both in there and you would never know!

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, spices, and salt.
2. In another bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar until well combined. Then whisk in the pumpkin puree, oil, and milk.
3. Gently mix wet and dry ingredients together with a wooden spoon. There may be some lumps, but that’s okay! Be careful not to over mix batter. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
4. Spray a loaf pan with non-stick spray, then pour in batter. Bake for about 60 minutes until you can stick in a toothpick that comes out clean. For this particular recipe, it’s a good idea to loosely cover the top of the bread in the last 20 minutes of baking to prevent the top from burning.
​5. When bread is done, let cool and serve! If you want to save it for later, save it in an airtight container.
