This is a very nice dessert bread. My children loved it along with the neighborhood children. The recipe was enhanced by my daughter by putting in chocolate chips. Recipe from a newspaper.
- 3 cups flour
- 3 cups sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon table salt
- 1 teaspoon allspice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup oil
- 4 eggs
- 2⁄3 cup water
- 1 (16 ounce) can pumpkin
- 1 (12 ounce) bagnestle semisweet chocolate morsels
- Mix all the ingredients, except pumpkin and chips. Blend well. Add pumpkin, fold in chips.
- Pour the batter into greased and floured 9 1/2 x5 1/2 loaf pan.
- Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour, or until toothpick comes out clean from the middle of the loaf.
Very good. I used all applesauce instead of oil b/c that seemed like a large amount of oil for me. I also left out the 2/3 cup of water b/c the batter looked very thin to me as it was. I used fersh/frozen pumpkin instead of canned and I added more chocolate chips as I was tring to use up my open bags. I baked it in a bundt pan b/c my family likes it better that way. The extra chocolate chips make it VERY rich. I would just stick to the amount called for in the recipe in the future. It stayed very moist even without the water called for. I cut the pieces smaller b/c of the richenss so I got somewhere around 20-25 servings out of it. I was a little concerned about it spilling over b/c my bundt pan was VERY full. I put a cookie sheet under it just in case but it didn't spill over. You might want to keep that in mind if you use a different sized pan.
Easy and delicious great for this fall weather. Used mini chocolate chips and added a simple glaze that I feel really set it off, will be using this one many times through this holiday season
My family loves Pumkin Bread and we wait for this season to buy it from the local bakery because I didn't know I was able to make it. My family went crazy for this bread! It was totally easy to make and I am a star this week! :) Thank you so much for this recipe, it will go into my cookbook as a "standard". I think I will cut back on the Chocolate chips because I felt it overwhelmed the pumpkin... but that's a personal choice... thank you!
