This bread comes with a story. I’ve been working on this recipe for a couple months now. It’s trickier than you think to make pumpkin bread hold together well while keeping it moist. I tried this so many different ways! Now onto the story of the Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread.
It was the week my dear friend went into labor. She was a week over due and her water broke. I spent the next few days in the hospital helping her and the new baby. Thad (the husband for those of you who are new here) was able to get some time off. I left one night to go help with the baby saying, “You guys can each have one slice of pumpkin bread after dinner, but save the rest so I can photograph them!” Out the door I went. I came home to find the bread all gone! While I was thrilled the family loved it so much, I was crushed to realize I needed to re-bake and photograph. Then my friend text me that she needed me at the hospital the next day.
Thad stepped up. He offered to bake the bread AND photograph it AND send me the edited pictures so I could finish the article while in the hospital-holding the sweetest little baby boy by the way. 👶
So this incredible chocolate chip pumpkin bread is brought to you specially by my wonderful husband, who while not always seen on Sweetest Lemonade, has a very big presence. Without him our team would not be complete!
