Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Apparently, I'm in a baking mood this afternoon. Possibly it's due to the cloudy, cool weather and the need to warm up the house. It could also just be that I'm in the mood for some chocolate chip cookies. Yes, I do have chocolate chip cookie dough all ready to be baked, but I'm making pumpkin chocolate chip bread for the first time. It's in the oven as I type this...but I'll add a picture when it comes out. I'm really hoping that it turns out to be tasty. Here's the recipe if you're interested...

4 eggs
2 1/2 c. sugar
1 c. oil
1/3 c. water
1 small (15 oz) can of pumpkin
1 t. vanilla
1 package of chocolate chips
3 1/2 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
3 t. cinnamon
1 t. ginger

Beat eggs and sugar together. Add oil, water and pumpkin to egg mixture and mix flour, soda, salt and cinnamon together and add to pumpkin mixture. Add vanilla. Stir in as many chocolate chips as you like. Pour in 2 greased bread pans and bake at 300°F for 1-1/2 hours or until cake tests done (toothpick inserted in center comes out clean).

I'm definitely going to have to share one of the loaves because Tim and I definitely do not need to eat 2 loaves. Oh, and the chocolate chip cookies will probably be baked before the end of the week. When I make the dough, I usually just bake a dozen cookies at a time so we don't end up eating 48 cookies in one day.

If you try the recipe, let me know what you think! Happy baking!
