A Little Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread?

To continue the party over at The Domestic Witch I thought I'd present a little pumpkin bread with chocolate chips. I can't seem to make any dessert without chocolate!

A little about the magical pumpkin....

The Magickal Properties of Pumpkins: Used for fertility and contacting the Spirit World. Since most pumpkins are large, they also represent abundance or being plentiful. Also, by lighting your Jack-O-Lantern you are sure to bring good luck to your household!



2 cups sugar
2 cups canned pumpkin
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup fat-free vanilla pudding
4 large egg whites
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture, stirring just until moist. Stir in chocolate chips. Spoon batter into 2 (8 x 4-inch) loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pans on a wire rack, and remove from pans. Cool completely on wire rack.

Now don't forget to stop on by The Domestic Witch to see what other ghoulish ghosts are up to at this monster fun mash!

    I saw a great recipe for pumpkin cake on Tammy's Sweet Life blog ~ so I bought the ingrediants. I did not print the recipe tho, because I planned to just go back to the blog when I was ready to make the cake,.... but now her blog is blocked, saying "only invited readers". I see she is on your list, can you get to her blog ?

  9. I'm going to make something very similar to this! Except they're muffins. :)
