pumpkin bread

at the wedding shower my family threw me, i got a lot of extremely good recipes. one of which i'm sharing with you today! my cousin heidi gave me a recipe book with all of her favorites & tonight i tried her chocolate chip pumpkin bread. it is soo delicious, i love it. & it made our house smell heavenly & fall-ish, which is an added benefit. the recipe makes ALOT. i got 2 full loaves of bread & 10 really good sized muffins. all you gotta do is.... 
wet mix:
5 eggs, well-beaten
1 large can pumpkin (2 1/2 C.)
3 1/2 C. sugar

1 1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 t. soda

add 1 1/4 C. milk chocolate chips.
fill bread pans 1/3 up (it puffs up a lot), or about 6-8 big spoonfuls.

if you are making muffins, pour muffin tins about 1/3 full
bake for 20 minutes.


  1. kerry,
    so glad you made it! It's the all-time best recipe I have. And, you'll notice it's different than everyone else's... it's all about the nutmeg & cloves. I'm pumped to go make my own batch right now- HAPPY HALLOWEENING!
