Pumpkin Bread with the added bonus of chocolate chips is the feature of this article. Pumpkin bread is a fall favorite that is relatively easy to make. Around this time a year, it can be found in nearly all grocery stores and bakeries because of the abundance of Boone Hall Pumpkins and basic pumpkin-loving girls. Pumpkin bread is a very versatile food, you can eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert…or all five if you want! If you want to make this lovely bread, here is a handy recipe to use:

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
