Make this Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread Today
As soon as the fall comes around, I love to break out the pumpkin recipes. This is a great pumpkin recipe, especially if you have people in your house that are not the biggest pumpkin fans. The flavor in this chocolate chip pumpkin bread recipe can win over anyone.
Can I make pumpkin chocolate chip muffins with this recipe?
This is a great tasting and easy recipe to make. You can certainly take this recipe to make pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. This recipe is a little bit denser than most cake or muffin recipes, but it will still come out fantastic. Once you have made the batter for the chocolate chip pumpkin bread, you will want to prepare the muffin tins. You can use cupcake papers or you can grease the muffin tins well. You will bake the muffins for about 25 minutes. Check the muffins to make sure they are done by inserting a toothpick. When it comes out clean, the muffins are done. Be careful to not overcook the muffins.
Can I use Homemade pumpkin puree?
This recipe calls for pumpkin puree. Pumpkin Puree is different than pumpkin pie mix that comes in a similar can. If you have homemade pumpkin puree on hand or want to make some for this recipe, you can certainly use homemade pumpkin puree. It is not hard to make your own puree. I like to use canned pumpkin puree because I do not always have the time to make homemade pumpkin puree and I can store the canned version much easier.
How to store pumpkin chocolate chip bread
When you make this pumpkin chocolate chip bread you can store it at room temperature, in the refrigerator or in the freezer. No matter where you store the pumpkin chocolate chip bread, you will want to make sure to have it wrapped well.
How Long Does Moist Pumpkin Bread Last
When you store the moist pumpkin bread at room temperature the bread will stay good for about 3 days. You can make the pumpkin chocolate chip bread last for about a week if you store it in the refrigerator. You can freeze the moist pumpkin bread for about 3 months. When freezing the bread, be sure to wrap it a few times in plastic and then put it in a freezer bag. This will prevent freezer burn.
Can This Bread be Made ahead
What I love about this bread is that it can be made ahead. If you want to make the bread and then serve it the next day or in a few days, you can serve it once it has cooled. If you like to eat this bread warm, with the right from the oven feel, you can reheat it slightly in the microwave. Another delicious option is to butter a slice of the pumpkin bread and then put it, butter side down, in a skillet. This will caramelize the sugars and create a grilled crust on the bread. This mixture of sweet and a little salty with crunchy and moist is an amazing treat. Be aware, once you try it, you might become addicted.
