"This yummy family tradition started when buying the kids their pumpkins. Each of the kids got one to make their jack o'lanterns. Mama got one to cook! Friends and family usually enjoy this treat. Tweak it to fit your family as I do mine! Enjoy with confectioners' sugar on top or cream cheese frosting!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5-inch loaf pans.
  2. Mix white sugar and applesauce together in a large bowl; stir pumpkin puree and eggs into sugar mixture until smooth. Mix baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, ginger, cloves, and mace into pumpkin mixture; fold in walnuts and chocolate chips. Stir flour into pumpkin mixture until fully incorporated. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pans.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • We prefer pecans and semisweet chocolate chips in our pumpkin bread. Most often I bake it in a 9x13-inch pan and once cooled, top it off with cream cheese frosting.

This was very easy and very good. I followed the recipe, except that I did not have mace but instead used 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon allspice. I added the optional chocolate chips but next time I would probably leave those out, just my personal preference. By all means give this recipe a try. The measurements and cooking time were spot on. Thanks Virginia Ann for sharing your recipe.

This was a hit! Moist and light, with a sweet and spicy flavor :) I left out the mace, chocolate, and confectioners' sugar, and used a 2 quart baking dish (9 x 13 inch pan).
