Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Yesterday we celebrated Sukkot with Nadav's family. It's true, there are about 30 4 Jewish holidays in September/October. I think it's kinda awesome.
On Sukkot we celebrate the harvest, enjoy yummy food, and hang out in a sukkah (which is mhm.. kind of like a outdoor fort made out of wood). It's a really a good time =) I wanted to bring something really yummy to the party, and was so excited when I found this recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread (perfect for celebrating the harvest right?)

This deliciousness was pretty easy to make, made our house smell so good, and was so yummy. It's basically the perfect fall recipe. :)

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread (Recipe from Betsy's site Java Cupcake)

1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
1/4 cup sour cream
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 2/3 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup + 1/4 cup chocolate chips, divided
Powdered sugar to garnish 

1.  Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Grease & flour loaf pan. (I also lined mine with parchment paper.)
2.  In large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt TWICE.
3. In a medium bowl, combine the pumpkin, eggs, oil, vanilla and sour cream until smooth.
4. Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the wet ingredients. Whisk together until smooth.
5. Fold in 1 cup of chocolate chips.
6. Pour into prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle 1/4 cup chocolate chips on top.
7. Bake 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
8. Cool in pan on a wire rack 20 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.
9. Dust top with powdered sugar to garnish.

Happy October =)

that looks amazing! How fun that you guys celebrate sukkot - outside of religious school, I never knew people celebrated it until I got to college and we had "hookah in the sukkah". :) Working at a JEwish organization the holidays are AMAZING - I get 3 four day weekends in a row!

Looks yummy! I've pretty much gone crazy with the pumpkin. I've already made pumpkin waffles and oatmeal pumpkin "cookies". I may be in a pumpkin coma by the end of this season.

I'm with DJ... I work at a Jewish org too, but that makes me feel even more guilty (how typical) because we get all these days off and I believe but I don't observe them properly! oh well.

hope you're having a wonderful week!
