Pumpkin Harvest Bread

I baked some of this bread Sunday evening, to rave reviews from all. The children loved it (probably the chocolate chips) and were going back for seconds. We have since then finished it off, eating it for breakfast and snacks the last couple of days. I found this recipe a year or so ago at Kristin’s site Bits and Pieces From My Life, but just got around to baking it this year. I won’t be waiting that long again – it was really delicious – thanks, Kristin! Oh, and I doubled the recipe, so the pictures will show twice the amount of the recipe (making 2 loaves, rather than 1).

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. ground cloves

Cream butter and sugar –

Add eggs and beat well –

Blend in pumpkin –

I thought it looked really pretty at this point 🙂 –

Sift dry ingredients –

Add to pumpkin mixture –

Stir in chocolate chips –

Pour into loaf pan(s) and bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes –

Really good warm from the oven, with a spread of butter –
