• Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf

    November 19, 2008

    Oh my gosh, this Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf came out so well! I’m so pleased! 😀 It’s super moist and chocolately, almost like chocolate cake, but with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. It would make the perfect dessert after Thanksgiving dinner, especially with a warm cup of coffee or tea.


    • 1.25 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 can (7.5 ounces) pumpkin
    • 1 cup chocolate chips


    1. Preheat oven to 325*F. Grease loaf pan.

    2. Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl; blend well.

    3. Once mixed, pour batter into loaf pan.

    4. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until top is firm and a toothpick comes out clean.

    5. Allow loaf to cool for 15 minutes; dust with powdered sugar (if desired).

    I made this a couple of months ago, and it was sooooo yummy!!! Am about to make it again, but suddenly I have a question: Is it half of a 7.5 ounce can of pumpkin (approx 3.75 oz.) — OR — do you actually put in 7.5 ounces of pumpkin?? Just want to get it right! Thanks for sharing such a marvelous recipe!

    I used half of a can, so 7.5 ounces. Hope this helps! :)

    I just made this, but I used half white whole wheat flour and half regular flour- it was awesome! Thanks for this recipe!!! :)

    Could I make this using egg whites and replace sugar with a sweetener?

    @kenzie109: Sure! Why not? :)

    I think this recipe sounds great! I noticed though that there is no oil or butter in the recipe. Is this correct?

    I made this for Thanksgiving this year, it so good everyone wants me to make them one. Instead dusting it with powered sugar, I made cream cheese frosting and spread over the top of it. Thank you for the recipe.
