Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread_Twine And Braids

I am really squeaking in this recipe at the last-minute here because Thanksgiving is tomorrow!  Last November around this time I talked about the chocolate chip pumpkin bread my grandma makes every year, read about that here, and I wanted to check back in to share the details.  For twenty-eight years of my life I was under the impression that this was a secret family recipe passed down by my great grandma.  I thought she concocted it up in her kitchen many moons ago and we’ve all continued baking it up. Well, I thought this up until last Thanksgiving when I was sitting next to my grandma at the dessert table and I asked her about the recipe.  She sort of laughed and said “no, my mother got the recipe for this pumpkin bread out of a newspaper.”  So there’s that.  Secret recipe or not, its definitley tradition to have pumpkin bread at Thanksgiving.

I love baking this bread during the entire fall season and wrapping it up for the perfect hostess gift!  Here’s the, not-so-secret family recipe:
