Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

 

Well Pumpkin isn’t a hot favourite in our household except in the form of desserts. Be it a pumpkin halwa or a pie or a cake or a bread it gets consumed within minutes and the moment I use it in curries or dals I get to hear under the breath mutterings and some hard to forget glares!!

With the fall season starting in the western part of the world the blogosphere is overflowing with the traditional pumpkin recipes.In the United States, pumpkins go hand in hand with the fall holidays of Halloween and Thanksgiving.

The 163 rd Foodie Monday Bloghop theme being Pumpkin Treats I decided to share with you all the recipe of an amazingly moist and delicious Pumpkin ChocoChip Bread which is a hit with my family. This loaf has the perfect amount of Pumpkin with the right flavour of spices and loaded with chocolate chips. The sour cream added to the recipe imparts the moist and perfect texture to the Bread.

 

The addition of the Autumn spices to the bread imparts a lovely aroma to it.They say Pumpkin bread is incomplete without its share of Autumn spices like ginger, cinnamon, cloves, all Spice. Last year one of my good friends sent me a box of divine smelling Pumpkin Pie spice from the United States. What a perfect gift for a food blogger… isn’t it?
