Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread


Units Scale
  • 2 c. plain pumpkin
  • 4 lg. eggs
  • 3 c. of sugar
  • 2/3 c. water
  • 1 c. oil
  • 3 1/3 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (you may add more, if desired)
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. allspice
  • 12 oz. (1 pkg) semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Mix together water, oil, pumpkin and eggs in a large bowl with electric beater.
  2. Add everything else, except the chocolate chips. Stir well. Then, add the chocolate chips.
  3. Pour into greased and floured loaf pans and bake at 350°F for approximately 60 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean and pans have pulled away from sides of pan. (Cupcakes bake for approximately 30 minutes.)


Sonja says, “They don’t take the full 60 minutes in the oven, usually about 45 minutes.”

Is there really no sugar in this recipe (besides the chocolate chips) or is that a typo that it was left out? Would be great if it has no sugar!

Sorry Julie! Yes there is sugar in the recipe. Thank you so much for catching that! We have updated it to include the amount.

Annette, do you mean unripened pumpkins? We don’t have recipes for that specifically, but our research turned up several tasty-sounding ones on the web. In general, you would treat green pumpkins as you would a cool-weather squash.
