About this recipe: A moist easy-to-make pumpkin loaf cake loaded with chocolate chips for good measure!
You can find tins of pumpkin puree in some of the larger supermarkets or online. If not, try this pumpkin puree recipe or simply steam or boil chunks of pumpkin till soft, then mash or puree in a blender.
I doubled the quantities, then discovered the instructions should have said a 2lb loaf tin (should have added up the weights first!) - 21 Jul 2016
This is a moist, well balanced quick bread with a nice punch of cinnamon. The batter will be thick, so be careful not to overwork it in the bowl. I was able to yield two 8"x3.75" loaves with this recipe, perfect for snacking and gifting. Definitely a keeper. - 06 Dec 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a good base recipe but I thought I needed to be a little less sweet, a little more pumpkin-y and have a little more spice. I made this as muffins rather than bread. Decrease the sugar to 1/2 + 1/3 c (I actually used 1/2 c Truvia + 1/3 c sugar, and it turned out beautifully). I decreased the chocolate chips to 2/3 c. I used 1 c + 3 tbsp of pumpkin puree, which added moisture as well as pumpkin flavor. I added 1/4 tsp cloves, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, and the juice of a 1" piece of fresh ginger root. - 06 Nov 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
