1 1/2 cups
semi-sweet chocolate chips
chopped walnuts, divided
This is an excellent bread for giving at the Holidays. I have made this bread for 2 years now and everyone loves it!
I have not made any changes, it is great as is!
I just made this for a cocktail party - doubled the recipe, used mini chips and baked them in miniature loaf pans and sliced so the servings were more size-appropriate for a cocktail party. Decreased bake time to about 35 mins for mini loaves. DELICIOUS!
I made two small changes: I used Hershey cinnamon chips instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips and pecans instead of walnuts. I chose to make muffins out of this recipe instead of one big loaf. I did get 12 medium sized muffins out of one recipe. Mine were done at just about 20 minutes. We thought this quick bread recipe was very nice but the glaze made it a little too sweet. I thought it could use a little more pumpkin or something to make it a little moister. Next time, I might up the pumpkin to a full cup and forgo the glaze all together OR skip the chips and go with the glaze.
Very good bread! I didn't have semi sweet chips, so used milk chocolate instead. Also, used 1/2 cup brown sugar & 1/2 white sugar. I omitted the icing because I wanted to keep the taste a little more simple & wanted to just have it warm with butter. Will for sure make again...
Made this for a family christmas party. Everyone loved it! Said it went great with coffee. The icing was very yummy! Followed the recipe exactly!!
This was really good. I used only Robin Hood Multi Grain flour for bread and didn't make the icing and it turned out great and was very delicious!
Its one of the best pumpkin recipes I have tried! My family loved it.
This was very good. I changed out some of the flour for whole wheat, but other than that followed the recipe as written. Very tasty, thanks!
