It’s time for a little fall baking! Daughter was home for the weekend last week, and I asked her to bake something up (because, she likes to bake, and I like to eat! Ha!) We decided that it was definitely pumpkin bread season, and it’s never bad to add a little chocolate, too, right? So here is daughter’s Chocolate Swirl Pumpkin Bread recipe!

Chocolate Swirl Pumpkin Bread Recipe
Makes 2 loaves.
1 cup (two sticks) butter
2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 15 oz can pumpkin
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup white flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Add eggs, and beat to combine. Add vanilla and pumpkin, beat until combined.
In separate bowl, add flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, salt and baking soda. Stir to combine. Add dry mixture to wet mixture and mix on low until combined.
In microwave safe bowl, add chocolate and 1 tsp butter. Microwave on medium power for 30 seconds. Stir. Continue microwaving on medium power for 30 second increments and stirring until chocolate is melted, about 2 minutes.
Grease two 8×4 inch loaf pans. Spoon a layer of batter into the bottom of one of the pans. Add half of the chocolate mixture and swirl gently with a knife. Cover with more pumpkin batter until pan in 3/4 full. Repeat in other pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 55-75 minutes, until golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Thanks for the recipes! I love anything pumpkin!
Hi Laurie- well, it IS Pumpkin-Everything season, right??? :)
Perfect to go with my spice chai latte! I will have to give this a try. I understand too-when my daughter is home we(I) spend more time in the kitchen too! :)
Hi Monica! Baking seems to be one of those things that’s more fun when you do it with others!
You have become my favorite treat to have with my morning coffee!!!! Love everything you do. Now off to bake this pumpkin bread. While scrolling through this page, I see you have a lot of recipes. Why don’t you have a tab on the top of your page for recipes? Or better yet, is there an easy way to get to all of them that you have posted?

Thanks for the pumpkin bread recipe, sounds yummy! I love all things pumpkin and plan on making the first pumpkin pie of the season this weekend.
Thank you- it looks great and I’m not even a big pumpkin fan!
“YES”, pumpkin bread and chocolate ! I get the dark chocolate chips and put them in my batter. For some strange reason the bread just disappears in our house !
Pumpkin bread looks so good. Will try. Thank you
Thanks for recipe. Anxious to try it
