'Everything Pumpkin' - DAY 3: Pumpkin Bread

Lizzie from The Dish from Delish posted this on her Blog, along with a recipe for Mulled Cider, which you may wish to visit to get the recipe for.  

This  Pumpkin Bread sounds lovely, so please have fun making it!

Day 3 - 'Pumpkin Bread'
Pumpkin Bread

2 cups canned pumpkin
1 cup canola oil
4 eggs
2/3 cup water
3 cups granulated sugar
3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray three (medium/smallish) bread loaf pans.

In a large bowl, combine pumpkin, oil, eggs, water and sugar. Sift in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and baking soda. Beat gently until batter is smooth, then gently add chocolate chips and mix until just incorporated. Pour batter into loaf pans until halfway full. Bake in preheated oven for one hour or (depending on your loaf pan – see note below) until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Remove from oven and let cool for a couple of minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely before slicing. 

Optional: You can also lightly butter the tops and dredge with powdered sugar.

NOTE: If you don’t have small loaf pans, you can use two medium or one large loaf pan. just be sure that the batter only comes halfway up the sides of the pan. You should also increase the cooking time a few minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
