Are you looking for a tasty fall treat? Does the changing of the leaves make you crave pumpkin-y goodness? Do you like chocolate? Well then I’ve got a recipe for you!
This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip bread is moist and tasty. It makes a great after school snack, breakfast treat or sweet nibble with coffee. And it’s a great bread to bring along to a fall party/potluck or gift a neighbor with. Let me tell you, once I get a loaf of this out of the oven it rarely lasts a full day–I have to hide it from the kids if I want Yankee Bill to get a taste 🙂
