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

These days, I are likely to want pumpkin desserts, cookies, and breads over custardy pumpkin treats (too many unhealthy childhood recollections!). This chocolate chip pumpkin bread is a favourite.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip LoafThis is an excellent moist loaf with a vivid 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 nearly bitter chocolate.

The barest trace of spice within the batter is amplified by the liberal coating of cinnamon sugar on prime of the bread. This does double obligation: 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 no less than a number of days, wrapped effectively, on the countertop.
