1 hour 30 minutes
Serves 8-10
  • 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°. Liberally grease 2 loaf pans.

In a large bowl, add flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and stir to combine. Set aside.

In a bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add pumpkin, oil, eggs, water and spices and blend on low speed. Slowly add dry ingredients and mix on low until just combined.

Put chocolate in a glass bowl. Microwave in 15 second increments, until melted.   Transfer half batter to prepared pans. Divide melted chocolate evenly between 2 loaf pans. Transfer remaining half batter to pans, covering chocolate. Using a knife, swirl together chocolate and batter to make a marble effect. Bake until a toothpick inserted into center of loaves comes out clean, 55-60 minutes. Let cool 30 minutes before removing and slicing.
