Pumpkin chocolate chip bread

This pumpkin chocolate chip bread is quick and easy to make and delicious way to make use of pumpkin. The pumpkin bread is lightly spiced, incredibly moist and totally delicious. What is special about this unusual pumpkin chocolate chip bread is that is made with pumpkin puree, egg substitute, brown sugar, pumpkin spice and evaporated milk, then baked. This bread can be served with whipped cream and can be enjoyed for afternoon tea, with morning coffee, or as healthy snack at any time of the day. Simply hollow out a pumpkin and fill it with your favorite stuffing.

This is really a pretty presentation. I've had many compliments for this unusual yet tasty pumpkin bread.


For the Bread:
  • 1 cup butter, softened 
  • 1 cup granulated sugar 
  • 3 eggs 
  • 2 cups pumpkin pie mix 
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda 
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 
  • 3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 
  • 4 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips 
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts 
  • 3 cups powdered sugar 
  • 4 to 5 teaspoons milk or whipping cream 

Method of preparation:

  1. Heat oven to 200°C. Grease bottom only of 5x8-inch loaf pan with shortening or cooking spray.
  2. In large mixing bowl, mix butter, granulated sugar, eggs and pumpkin; whisk with wire. Stir in the flour, 2 teaspoons baking soda, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. In the end stir in chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. Spread the completed mixture in pan.
  3. Bake for about one hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for about 20-30 minutes, first remove it from pan and then set it to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 2 or more hours.
  4. In separate small bowl, stir powdered sugar and milk until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over pumpkin chocolate bread loaf. Let glaze set up before slicing, about one hour.
  5. Have it as a main or a side for a dinner party. It's a great base to add your own flair to, and great to have as snack after the gym after a long day.
