Chocolate Pumpkin Bread

Chocolate pumpkin bread (click through for recipe) September is here and we all know what that means: time for internet ladies to lose it over pumpkin spice everything!

I’m kidding.

Ok, half kidding.Β 

But you totally know it’s true. I’m a total internet lady myself, so you can bet I hopped in line for my pumpkin spice latte first chance I got this week. πŸ™‚

I’m just saying, it’s tasty and could easily find it’s way on to a breakfast plate or beside your afternoon coffee. I mean, pumpkin AND chocolate? Yum!

Chocolate pumpkin bread recipeChocolate Pumpkin Bread, makes one loaf.

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
3 teaspoons cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons greek yogurt

We’re going to be mixing things, and then dividing them so we can get that pretty marbled look. Don’t fret, it’ll all work out in the end.Β 

Chocolate pumpkin bread recipe In a bowl, combine the sugars and softened butter. Mix well. Stir in each egg and then the vanilla extract until just combined. Set aside.

In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Remove half of the mixture to another bowl (yes, a third bowl), and to this add the cocoa. Now divide the butter mixture in half between these two bowls. Add 1/4 cup pumpkin puree and a tablespoon of greek yogurt to each. Stir until just combined.Β 

Add the batter to a buttered loaf pan in large spoonfuls, dispersing the two colors throughout. Then use a knife to swirl the batter around.Β 

Bake at 325Β°F for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before removing it from the pan.

No? That got a little goofy at the end? Yeah, ok. I can see that now.Β
