Pumpkin is the quintessential fall flavor. Many people wait, anxiously, for that tinge of coolness in the air to make something with pumpkin.

This moist quick bread has a soft, tender crumb and is full of pumpkin flavor. In addition to a wonderful taste, your house will smell like fall.

My Mom loved this chocolate chip pumpkin bread recipe. It gave me great pleasure to know how much she enjoyed it.

Whenever I would visit her in the fall she would ask me if I brought her pumpkin bread. I started bringing it to her regularly. It always put a smile on her face. She devoured it!

Can I make mini loaves of Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread?

The answer is simply, YES! Originally, the recipe made 6 mini loaves but I converted it to make 2 regular size loaves. The adjusted baking time is noted in the recipe.

The mini loaves are perfect for gift giving or to give your guests at a dinner party to take home. I prefer using milk chocolate chips but semi-sweet or bittersweet would be good too.

I do not use an electric mixer for this recipe. With the amount of sugar and flour, I find it easier to mix by hand with a wooden spoon. Less messy too. Over-mixing will make the bread tougher too. Chocolate chip pumpkin is a flavor combination that will surely become a favorite in your home.
