How to make Pumpkin Bread:
Cream together sugar and butter in a large bowl until smooth and creamy. Add eggs, vanilla and pumpkin puree and mix until combined.
- In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.
- Alternately add the flour mixture, then the milk. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips.
- Pour batter into greased and floured bread pans and bake for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool for a few minutes in the pan and then invert the bread onto wire racks.
