Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Source: A friend

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350ยบ.

Stir together first four dry ingredients (flour-baking soda). Mix pumpkin, oil, eggs, milk and spices together, then combine with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Add walnuts and chocolate chips.

Pour into a well-buttered loaf pan. Bake 50-60 minutes. Turn out of pan and cool on wire rack.

My notes: This is one of those fattening recipes that is worth every single delicious, moist bite. And well, it IS made with vegetable oil which is much lower in saturated fat than most of the buttery baked goods I make......and pumpkins and walnuts are good for you.....right? I like to make a double batch (you can get away with using 1 can of pumpkin puree for 2 batches) - sometimes making several small loaves to give as gifts. This bread freezes beautifully.
