Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread  
3 cups white sugar
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
1 cup vegetable oil
⅔ cup water
4 eggs

3½ cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking soda
1½ teaspoons salt

1 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour three 9x5 inch loaf pans. Or four 8x3.

2. In a large bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin, oil, water, and eggs. Beat until smooth.

3. Blend in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt.

4. Fold in chocolate chops and nuts.

5. Evenly distribute among loaf pans.

6. Bake for 1 hour, or until an inserted knife comes out clean. Cool before removing from pans.

I think it could use 1/2 a tsp more of nutmeg and cinnamon and maybe even more pumpkin puree. I haven't tried this variation yet and it was still fantastic (without walnuts).

It was really easy to make. Also, very easy to pig out on.

It is beyond good and I didn't even add extra of any of the stuff I mentioned. It is my new addiction.

Definitely going to try. Sounds delicious. Pumpkin puree isn't easy to come by here, but I think I've sourced where I can get it. Yay!

I never thought of that. It just sits on our market shelves here, all year long.

We don't do a lot of pumpkin pie or that kind of thing like in the US, so not that common. Wish is just INSANE as it's so yummy!

Sometimes it is hard to remember they don't always have the same things all over the world.

Indeed. And it's infuriating. There are so many things from the States that I love, but can't get here in the UK.
