I couldn’t resist trying this Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread recipe, as I’m a fan of both pumpkin and chocolate. The combination sounded absolutely divine, and I was excited to see how the flavors would come together in this delightful autumn treat.


  • 3 cups white sugar

  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • 2/3 cup water

  • 4 eggs

  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 1 pound size coffee cans, or three 9×5 inch loaf pans.
  • In a large bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin, oil, water, and eggs. Beat until smooth. Blend in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts. Fill cans 1/2 to 3/4 full.
  • Bake for 1 hour, or until an inserted knife comes out clean. Cool on wire racks before removing from cans or pans.

Following the recipe, I mixed the pumpkin puree, spices, and other wet ingredients, creating a fragrant and flavorful base for the bread. Then, I gradually added the dry ingredients, ensuring a smooth and well-incorporated batter. Finally, I folded in the chocolate chips, adding a touch of sweetness and decadence to the mix.

As the bread baked in the oven, my kitchen filled with the comforting aroma of pumpkin and spices. The anticipation grew, and I eagerly waited for it to cool before slicing into it.

The first bite was pure bliss. The pumpkin added a moistness to the bread, while the chocolate chips melted into pockets of indulgence. The combination of the rich autumn flavors and the delightful bursts of chocolate created a taste sensation that was truly irresistible.

I couldn’t help but have another slice, savoring each bite and relishing the harmonious blend of pumpkin and chocolate. This Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread is a definite winner and will surely become a new classic in my recipe collection.
