Classic pumpkin bread perfect for Fall. Mix up your own pumpkin spice, and this recipe will be on repeat at your house. You can make this recipe with or without chocolate chips.
We love quick breads! You know sweet breads that are almost like cake. This recipe for pumpkin bread is so good! When it comes to pumpkin bread, it’s nice to know that you can usually count on having all the ingredients because it’s so easy to keep a couple cans of pumpkin puree in your pantry. Canned pumpkin is a great food storage item too! This recipe is one of my favorite things about Fall.
Did you know that it is super easy to make your own pumpkin pie spice? It’s just a few basic spices mixed together: allspice, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves.
So you can make this recipe with or without chocolate chips. We like it both ways. If you do add chocolate chips, the mini semisweet Nestle Chocolate Chips are really good in it! We made it in little mini bread loaf pans this time and they make the cutest gifts!
A big smear of soft room temp butter and oh baby…it’s so good!
You can make it in two regular sized loaves or you can use the mini bread loaf size and make four mini loaves of pumpkin bread, a few to eat and a few to share, if it’s not gone too fast. 🙂
