Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

CJ and I made this yummy chocolate chip pumpkin bread for the family.  CJ got to do the cooking because it was his Halloween jack-o’-lantern we used for the recipe.  Here’s how to use your jack-o’-lantern to get actual pumpkin for cooking.

Ingredients

1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1 c. sugar
1 c. pumpkin, cooked and mashed
1/4 c. cooking oil
1 egg
1 c. chocolate chips or chunks (optional, but I may think less of you if you leave it out)
1/2 c. chopped nuts (also optional)

Instructions

Mix together all the dry ingredients.  Then make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add in your wet ingredients.  Beat the egg, oil, and pumpkin together a bit before you mix it into the dry ingredients.
