November 06, 2021

Searching for a quick and easy bread, one that complements tea, coffee or a glass of chilled milk?

I think this recipe for Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread might just be the one.

Bonus for this recipe is that it is a great recipe for Thanksgiving time! 🦃


Thank you for joining me today.😊

I have been promising recipes for the Holidays and today I am sharing another one-a little late, but I suppose better late than never!

Seems as though my blogging ebbs and flows even though I diligently try to put myself on a publishing schedule.

I commit then I re-commit then before I know it the week has flown by with not one written word or photograph uploaded. It is not because I don't love to bake, craft, garden, decorate and write, because I truly do!

The problem is that I get caught up in the shenanigans of life and more often than not that means family time!

Family time often leads to time spent in the kitchen so today that kitchen time resulted in this delicious Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread recipe!


Why I like Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

  • It is so easy, no fail and just about everyone I know loves this seasonal tea bread.
  • It is great for gift giving.
  • It keeps to 4 days wrapped well in the fridge.
  • It freezes up to 2 months.

Versatile Spreads can be added to customize your taste buds and this recipe!

I love to top my tea breads with a spread.

Even though pumpkin bread has some pretty distinct flavors it is pretty adaptable to the spreads I have listed below.
I know the grandkids love to add Nutella to just about everything!
If you really are in the mood to add a luscious topping how about mixing peach preserves with cream cheese and a splash of ginger.
It is a real taste treat!
