You guys.  You guys.  If you’re a pumpkin bread fan, you’ve got to make this bread.  I mean, you really, seriously, have to make it {and then bring me a loaf, please}.

No lie, I’ve made this bread twice in the last week.  The first time I made it, I scarfed down nearly half the loaf completely on my own in just a couple of days.  Then, because I was disgusted with myself for eating so much of it, I packed up the second half and sent it home with my parents.

Two days later, I was regretting the fact that I gave away my remaining pumpkin loaf, so I made it again.  And…repeat.  I sent most of the second loaf with the Tall Boy to work, because oh my gosh.  Eating two loaves of chocolate chip pumpkin bread in a week does probably not bode well for fitting into my skinny jeans this fall.

But it might be worth it.

The first time I made this chocolate chip pumpkin bread, I used 1 cup of canned pumpkin puree, and the bread turned out completely, totally yummy.  On my second attempt, I subbed half of the pumpkin puree with some of my homemade spiced pumpkin butter, and the result was pure heaven.

You don’t have to use the pumpkin butter for this recipe, but if you have some on hand {and it’s not hard to whip up – it only requires mixing a few ingredients together and allowing them to simmer low and slow for about 30 minutes} I absolutely recommend it.

I dare you to make this bread and NOT eat more than one slice. 😉

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
