quick tips for making the best homemade chocolate chip pumpkin bread
I've included some suggested tips below to help make your chocolate chip pumpkin bread making experience go smoothly!
- For this pumpkin bread recipe, I used my 2 Jamie Oliver non-stick loaf tins. They're nicely made and wash well after baking!
- If you don't have a flour-based baking spray, you can choose to grease them with shortening and a little bit of flour.
- Secondly, you can add a parchment paper sling to fit each loaf tin. This helps with removing them from the tins for cooling. Just make sure to lightly spray or grease the parchment paper once it's placed so it doesn't stick to the bread. To keep them from moving too much, I fold and crease the parchment paper over the edges.
- I divide the pumpkin bread into the two loaf tins using my OXO food scale, this way it gives me the same size loaves. In addition, it goes up to 11 pounds, has a pull out display, and it also has a zero function in between weighing your ingredients. It was a gift from my mother-in-law and I use it all the time!
- With any leftover pumpkin puree you have, I suggest keeping it in a tightly stored container in your fridge. It will keep for 3-5 days.
- The recommended baking time for this chocolate zucchini bread recipe is 60-75 minutes at 350ºF. I initially checked my loaves at the 60 minute mark and ended up leaving them in for an additional 10 minutes.
- With my one bowl chocolate zucchini bread recipe, a few of my readers told me they have made them into mini loaves which, to me, is just genius!
