Since I woke up early today
I thought I’d bake something yummy
I love to cook when the weather turns cooler.
Those of you who know me
know that I am not really a cook
but a baker!
I like going out and searching the web for
delicious scones, breads and muffin recipes!
I have found good ones on many a site and
quite a few from the
King Arthur Flour website.
King Arthur has wonderful baking cookware
as well as boxed goods to
bake-up at home.
I found King Arthur through their cake flour and
bread flours available in California’s grocery stores.
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread
Here is the recipe as it is written:
3 cups canned pumpkin puree (must use Libby’s)
1.5 cups vegetable oil
4 cups sugar
4.75 cups all-purpose flour (I substituted 1 cup of whole wheat flour for one)
1.5 tsp baking powder
1.5 tsp baking soda
1.5 tsp salt
1.5 tsp ground cloves
1.5 tsp ground nutmeg
1.5 tsp ground cinnamon
1 bag Nestle semi-sweet mini chips (I used dark
chocolate from Winco)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease and flour three 9×5 inch loaf pans ( used muffin tins)
In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin, oil, sugar and eggs.
Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cloves,
nutmeg, and ground cinnamon.
Stir into the pumpkin mixture until well blended.
Stir in bag of mini chocolate chips.
Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans.
Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
The top of the loaf should spring back when lightly pressed.
(I used my cake tester, when it came out clean, they were done.)
was the large one, I had one more cup than was needed
for this recipe, so…
I decided to add another quarter to the measurements.
Brought some muffins into work today to share
and the other aides liked the muffins a lot, too!
Wedgwood Sarah’s Garden ~ Queen’s Ware
which have a little fall color to them.
These were bought on a fun meet-and-greet talk
and shopping trip to the Costa Mesa Mall Macy’s
back in the late 90’s with a friend to visit
Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York,
when she was spokesperson for Wedgwood.
meet the Duchess.
It was quite lovely!!!
Blessings to you and yours,
