Confession: I’m a late bloomer in the case of my love for pumpkin.

These days, I are likely to favor pumpkin truffles, cookies, and breads over custardy pumpkin treats (too many dangerous childhood reminiscences!). This chocolate chip pumpkin bread is a favourite.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip LoafThis is a brilliant moist loaf with a shiny orange, not-too-dense crumb. A sprinkle of mini chocolate chips within the batter creates a distinction between the candy, tender crumb of the bread and virtually bitter chocolate.

The barest trace of spice within the batter is amplified by the liberal coating of cinnamon sugar on high of the bread. This does double responsibility: it provides taste and it turns right into a crackly crust because the bread bakes (My tasters declared that as their favourite half.)

This bread retains like a dream for at the least a couple of days, wrapped nicely, on the countertop.
