Running out of fall-themed food to make? Pumpkin bread is the perfect sweet treat for breakfast or dessert. Give this recipe a try; this pumpkin bread is sure to satisfy your seasonal sweet tooth.

Gather your ingredients

For this recipe, you will need: flour, baking soda, salt, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vegetable oil and chocolate chips.

Start prepping

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and grab a 9-inch by 5-inch bread pan. Grease the pan with non-stick spray, butter or oil—which ever method you prefer, but don’t be shy when greasing the pan. Conclude your prep by sprinkling some flour around the pan to make the bread easier to remove after baking.

Dry ingredients

Combine 1 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon salt into a bowl. Whisk together until they are mixed.

Wet ingredients

Combine 1 can of pumpkin puree with 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar into a bigger bowl and mix. Then, add 1/2 cup vegetable oil and 1 tablespoon vanilla extract. After mixing well, add two eggs, one at a time. Finally, mix in 1 cup of chocolate chips for an extra bit of sweetness.

Get mixing

Take your dry ingredients and gradually mix them into the bowl of the wet ingredients. Continue whisking until the mixture is lump- free. Then, pour the batter into your pan and even it out with a spatula.

It’s time to bake

Put the pan into the oven and bake for 40 minutes before doing the toothpick test. If you stick a toothpick into the middle of the loaf and it comes out completely dry, your bread is done! If not, keep it in for about five more minutes and do the test again.

Serve and enjoy!

Slice up your pumpkin bread and serve with butter, honey, maple syrup or extra chocolate chips on top. Make it a tradition and follow this pumpkin bread recipe every fall.
