Tuesday Cook Off ~ Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

The kids are back in school and Labor Day has passed us.  It’s time to start thinking about pumpkin!  I love pumpkin bread, cookies, pies etc.   I have been scoping out my pumpkin recipes for months now.   So with Labor Day behind us, I thought I would feature my first pumpkin recipe of the fall.   This bread is so easy to make and is so good.  I promise you will just love the taste of this bread.  My youngest son, who is also a pumpkin lover, gave it a thumbs up!  That is hard to get from him 🙂

If you have a great pumpkin recipe, I would love for you to share it with us.   Please email Linda@mybabypajamas.com.

Yields 1 loaf

Recipe from Delishhh Blog

Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups unbleached flour (you may substitute up to 3/4 cup whole wheat flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tsp milk

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour one 9×5-inch loaf pan. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, soda, salt and spices. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until well combined. Add flour mixture alternately with pumpkin, mixing well between each addition. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread batter into prepared pan and bake for 65-75 minutes, until loaf feels firm and springy when pressed in the center and a tester inserted comes out clean (except for melted chocolate chips). Cool in pan for 15 minutes then remove from pan and cool on a wire rack. To prepare glaze, sift powdered sugar with nutmeg and cinnamon in a small bowl. Add milk until mixture is thin enough to drizzle. Pour glaze over cool bread. Bread will keep well wrapped at room temperature for two days, in the refrigerator for five days, or in the freezer for up to four months.

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Pretzel Bread

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Pretzel Bread

Today’s Tuesday Cook Off, My Baby Pajamas is featuring pretzel bread.   As you know, my family is crazy for anything pretzel.  In fact, I am starting to run out of ideas featuring pretzels.  There is a steak house here in Scottsdale that makes the best pretzel bread.  One night my husband was craving it but wanted it for a sandwich…the pretzel bread sandwich was created.   I found this easy recipe for the pretzel bread and next thing I knew we had dinner.    You can also make these into pretzel sticks with butter. YUM!

Here is the recipe for the pretzel bread:

In the bowl of your stand mixer, mix together:

  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water

Let sit about 5 min, until its foamy. Then add:

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Get the dough hook going and gradually add 4 C flour. Let the machine keep going until the dough looks a little bit shiny and totally flexible (about 4-5 min)

Let it rest in the bowl, covered with a towel for an hour, until doubled in size.

Divide dough into 6 for rolls, or two for baguettes and shape accordingly.. Let those chill out, covered while you get a large pot of water boiling with a hefty dose of baking soda. (about 1/2 C) . Preheat your oven to 375 and lightly coat a baking sheet with EVOO.

When the water is boiling, cut little slits in your rolls, then slip them into the baking soda bath :)

Flip at 2 min on the first side and take them out after 3-4 min. Oil them up with a little more olive oil and sprinkle with maldon (or coarse  sea) salt.

Bake until perfectly browned (12-15 min) and eat warm!
