Contest-Winning Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling
Makes2 loaves (16 slices each)
The bread has a nice texture but it does not taste like pumpkin at all. Also not a fan of soaking recipes with oil. Could have done with less of the oil and it should include spices like nutmeg, ginger, etc. or pumpkin pie seasoning. I really wish I went with my gut and added more spices before I put it in the oven. It could be saved with a spiced cream cheese frosting. It would a great recipe with more flavor added should have read the reviews first, thanks all for your comments.
Meh. The flavor was very lacking. Moisture was good. Flavor has so much potential. Chocolate chips add but don't give it enough flavor or cover up how bland this recipe is. Don't make this and give it to your friends unless they appreciate bland food.
Subbed applesauce for some of the oil and replaced half the chocolate chips with butterscotch chips and the loaves did not last 24 hours cuz the fam at every last crumb and begged to know what was in the recipe! Thanks!
This was really good. My kids enjoyed it too. I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing.
My kids devoured both loaves. I subbed in some applesauce for some of the oil and it was still great. I used dark chocolate chips. Really good - the whole family loved this recipe.
This bread was given to us by our neighbor for Christmas. Both my husband and I really liked it so I got the recipe and made it myself. I didn't change a thing.The recipe can also be found in the Taste of Home Contest Winning Annual Recipes 2006. Make it for the holidays and whenever you want a nice pumpkin dessert.
This bread is so delicious expecially with a nice vanila glaze topping it. I recommend making muffins out of the batter and adding the vanilla glaze as a topping, I totally recommend this recipe
We loved this bread! The chocolate chips were a nice twist on the traditional pumpkin bread. Made the recipe exactly as written. I love that it makes two loaves......we ate one, and I stashed one in the freezer for Christmas morning. Goes great with cream cheese, but is delicious on its own! Will definitely add this to my pumpkin bread collection!Volunteer Field Editor
This is so good, the best pumpkin bread we've had. I didn't change a thing and wonder why people have to let everyone know how they totally altered a recipe. I ask, why don't you just submit your own recipe and let it go at that?
I thought the oil amount was too much so I used only 1 cup and baked it only 55-60 minutes at 325 degrees ( I used glass pans). It turned out great! Next time I'd like to try apple sauce instead of oil as others have .
