ingredients for pumpkin chocolate chip bread

Ingredients Needed For Pumpkin Bread

  • salted butter– I generally use salted butter in my cooking and baking recipes, but unsalted butter works just fine here too.
  • granulated sugar– This fine sugar helps sweeten the pumpkin bread.
  • light brown sugar– When shopping for brown sugar, you’ll see light and dark brown sugar available. Either work just fine in this recipe.
  • large eggs– To keep consistent in my baking, I use large eggs in my recipes.
  • pure vanilla extract– For best tasting results, make sure your vanilla is pure vanilla.
  • pumpkin puree– Make sure when shopping for pumpkin puree, the can doesn’t say pumpkin pie filling. Should just be pure pumpkin puree.
  • all purpose flour– The all-purpose flour is the main dry ingredient in the bread.
  • ground cinnamon– Ground cinnamon pairs so lovely with pumpkin desserts. Find it in the spices section of the grocery store.
  • baking soda- Baking soda helps the bread rise when baking.
  • kosher salt– Kosher salt is a coarse salt. I prefer using kosher salt in my cooking and baking.
  • mini chocolate chips– Mini chips can often times be found in the chocolate chip section of the grocery store. If you can’t find them, regular chocolate chips work fine too.

    So amazing!! Best pumpkin bread recipe. My family doesn’t love pumpkin things, but this is an exception! So good with and without the chocolate chips.

      Yes, I think the recipe would be just fine as muffins, I would check baking time starting at 17 minutes then adjust as needed.
