Ingredients

  • 1 ⅓ cups white sugar

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 ½ tablespoons molasses

  • 1 ⅔ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 cup toasted almond slices, divided

  • ½ cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips, divided

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

  2. Beat sugar, pumpkin, vegetable oil, eggs, and molasses together in a large bowl. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ground ginger together in another bowl. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and stir until batter is well-combined.

  3. Stir 2/3 of the almonds and 3/4 of the chocolate chips into batter. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan; sprinkle remaining almonds and remaining chocolate chips over the top of the loaf.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Cook's Note:

Try mixing up the addition of the almonds and chocolate to just dark chocolate chips, or chopped pecans, or some sort of dried fruit; the options are endless. Also the bread is delicious enough without anything added to it at all!
