As soon as September hits, all I can think about is pumpkin.Pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin pasta, pumpkin soup, pumpkin everything! I try to hold off and save all my pumpkin baking for October, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Now that we’re well into October, there’s no need to be ashamed, right? This is my favorite pumpkin bread, I make it every fall. It’s very simple and kid friendly, there aren’t too many overbearing spices. I only recently started adding chocolate chips, it’s amazing! (I don’t know if I trying to be healthier before? Whatever. It shouldn’t have taken me this long!)
2 cups pumpkin puree
2/3 cup water
1 cup cooking oil
3 cups white sugar
3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg*
1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 9×5 loaf pans. Greasing, then flouring you pan will create that “crust” all the way around your bread.
2: In a bowl, mix together pumpkin, eggs, oil, water and sugar. Combine well. In separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. *I only like a little bit of nutmeg flavoring in my bread, so if you prefer more, add an extra 1/2 teaspoon. Gradually add dry ingredients to pumpkin mix. Mix well. Add desired amount of chocolate chips.
3: Pour mixture into pans and bake for 50-60 minutes.

Mmmm, looks delish! I just made banana bread last night and all of the cho chips I added sunk to the bottom! Haha! I need to break out the pumpkin. And the printable? Adorable! xoxoxoxoxo
I have a good recipe for pumpkin bread too. It's similar to yours only has both mini and regular chocolate chips. 🙂
I have a pumpkin bread recipe that is EXACTLY the same as this one, but the bread comes out looking different than what yours looks like. It sinks down in the middle and is under-cooked, even when I leave it in the oven for additional time. What size bread pans do you use? That might make a difference…

What I love about things like banana bread and pumpkin bread is that we call it bread, which sounds healthier than cake, which is what it really tastes like 🙂 This looks so delicious, Lex!
This looks so yummy! Definitely trying this! Can I ask how many loaves this makes?
