Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

I look forward to this bread every fall. It is
my favorite pumpkin treat of the season, so I decided to start with it for the 'Gotta Love Pumpkin series I'll be doing the next few weeks. Note: If you are going to give one of the loaves away, wrap it up before you start eating the other loaf because once you start eating this bread it is hard to stop! Let's just say neither of our loaves made it out the door.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Makes two large loaves

Wet Ingredients

5 eggs

16 oz can pumpkin

¾ cup applesauce

¾ cup canola oil

Dry ingredients

2 cups flour

2 cups sugar

1 large package (4.6 oz) instant vanilla pudding mix

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1 bag chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray to bread pans with cooking spray.

Mix eggs, pumpkin, applesauce and oil in large mixing bowl. Mix flour, sugar, salt, soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add to large mixing bowl. Mix until well blended. Stir in the pudding mix and chocolate chips. Pour into greased bread pans.

Bake for 65-75 minutes. I always do the toothpick check 10 minutes before it should be finished to make sure I don’t over bake.
