Once even the hint of autumn rolls around, I’m pulling out the pumpkin recipes. In my defense, I grew with pumpkin treats, so it has to do with childhood nostalgia and a genuine love of pumpkin. We always had pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing and pumpkin cookies with semisweet chocolate chips. After we married, I came into this pumpkin sweet bread recipe from my mother in law – and I often add mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. The recipe can also be baked as muffins.
