Something about loaf cakes reminds me of farm stands and church bake sales. They're not beautiful, but they're awfully comforting. When fall rolls around and my thoughts turn to pumpkins and apples, this is the type of treat I want on my table.
This quick and easy breakfast bread takes the essence of pumpkin pie and infuses it with chocolate chips. The loaf is tender and sweet without being overly so. It's sturdy and freezes well. Yes, this is an autumn treat you'll want to make again and again.
