Turkey Time

So what are you cooking for Thanksgiving?

I'll be making last year's Momofuku brussels sprouts for a friend's turducken party this weekend, but for Thanksgiving proper, I'm just sticking to bringing the wine.

Rock and Roll Recipe Radio - Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

A brisk, fall day called for warm, seasonal baked goods and a little music. If that loaf of Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread looks a little overgrown to you, listen to find out why. You can make your own pumpkin bread by (carefully) following this recipe:

  • 3 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 2 c cooked or canned pumpkin
  • 1-1/4 c. vegetable oil
  • 1-1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. In another bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, pumpkin and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips.

Pour into two greased 8-in. x 4-in loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 min. or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 min. before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 loaves.
