Sharing is caring!

Fall is the perfect time to make this Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Bread Recipe! It’s one of my favorite pumpkin flavors in bread form.

Once you make this simple bread recipe, you will be hooked. One slice isn’t enough, so you might as well get one for each hand.

Dessert breads like this Pumpkin Loaf Cake prove that bread can be enjoyed no matter the meal or course. You can make this a sweet treat after dinner or decide that you want to start the day with it.

When it comes to this simple pumpkin bread, there is no wrong answer! It’s the perfect bread recipe for breakfast, brunch, or dessert.

Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Bread Recipe

While I’m a huge fan of the pumpkin spice flavoring to this homemade bread, let’s not overlook that the chocolate drizzle on top is a great addition.

My boys are all about eating fresh bread right when it’s cooled just enough, and this bread proved that it was worth the wait.

After we baked the first loaf, there were already pleas in the eyes of everyone in the house to make a round 2. I think that is a good indicator that it was a hit!

What is the best way to store homemade dessert bread?

While leaving it out on the kitchen counter might be tempting, this can quickly lead to stale, inedible bread.

Instead, the best way to store your homemade dessert bread is by wrapping it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and placing it in an airtight container. You can also store it in the fridge to extend its shelf life.

I’ve found that this bread recipe is best when slicing it into individual slices and then wrapping each slice in saran wrap. It keeps the leftovers super fresh!

This smooth and creamy puree is made by cooking and blending pumpkin until it is silky and free of lumps or chunks.

It can be found canned or homemade and is used in various recipes, from pumpkin pies and breads to soups and stews.

With its distinct earthy flavor and vibrant orange hue, pumpkin puree will surely add a touch of fall to any dish.
