I can't believe I haven't posted this before, but here is my very favorite recipe for pumpkin bread!
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 c margarine or butter at room temp
2 eggs, beaten well at room temp
4 T buttermilk OR 1/2 cup if you are doubling the recipe
1 15oz can of pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie mix)
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon salt
1 tsp vanilla
1.5 cup chocolate chips
Cream the margarine and the sugar. Add eggs, vanilla, buttermilk and pumpkin.
Whisk together flour, salt, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg and soda. Fold into the wet mixture.
Fold in chocolate.
Pour into well-greased bread pans. Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes, or until almost done.
For muffins, bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.
