Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Loaf

Yields1 Serving

 2 cups all-purpose flour
 1 cup sugar (white or brown)
 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
 1 tsp. baking powder
 1 tsp. baking soda
 1/4 tsp. salt
 1 cup pumpkin puree
 1/2 cup canola oil
 1/2 cup buttermilk, thin plain yogurt or milk
 3 large eggs
 1 tsp. vanilla
 1/2-1 cup chocolate chips, chopped walnuts or pecans, or a combination

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9"x5" loaf pan with nonstick spray.


In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, spices, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, oil, milk, eggs and vanilla.


Add the wet ingredients to the dry along with a few handfuls of chocolate chips and/or nuts, if you're so inclined, and stir just until the batter comes together.


Scrape into the prepared pan and bake for an hour, until the top is cracked and springy to the touch.
