Recipe

This is my favorite bread recipe and it's super easy to make.
Harvest Loaf Bread
Preheat oven to 350˚F

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
3/4 cup pumpkin
1 3/4 cup flour
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. cloves
1/4 t. ginger
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. Salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips (edit, mini chocolate chips, thanks mom!)
3/4 cup chopped nuts (I like to use pecans, I think the recipe calls for walnuts though)

Cream butter, slowly add sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Shift flour, soda, add spices (I like to combine all the dry ingredients into a Tupperware container and just shake them up a bit). Stir into butter mixture, alternating with pumpkin. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips. You can sprinkle some nuts on the top too. . . this just makes it look prettier.
Bake for 1 hour.
