Ingredients

  • Cooking spray, for greasing
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cups butter, softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • One 15-ounce can pumpkin
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons pecans, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons sugar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Grease the bottoms of two 8-by-4-inch loaf pans. In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg until mixed.

In a large bowl, beat the sugar and the butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each one is added. Beat in the water and pumpkin. Add the flour mixture and beat until mixed. Stir in 1 cup of the chocolate chips. Spread evenly in pans. Sprinkle tops with the remaining chocolate chips, pecans, and sugar.

Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour, 15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Allow the loaves to cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
