And yes, you totally need to try it. I mean it’s chocolate, duh! That means it is totally fabulous! And topped with caramel frosting…double fabulousness going on in this here bread!
Of course if you really are not into chocolate like I am (who are you?), this Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread might be more your speed. It’s chocolate-y but more pumpkin-y! But seriously, just go for the double chocolate version! It’s to die for!!!
So I had to laugh when I saw my good friend Dorothy post about her Maple Glazed Pumpkin Bread. She mentioned the billions of pumpkin breads floating around cyberspace, but that we needed hers too.
Oh, I wasn’t laughing at her or that comment…I was laughing because I had made this pumpkin bread the week before, and I wanted to convince everyone that they needed in their life too!
Take a good look at this bread. Would you call it bread or cake?
My hubby and the kids called it cake. I resisted…it’s totally pumpkin bread. Then I took it with us when we went to dinner at our friends house. Of course my hubby had to bring up our bread vs. cake discussion while they were eating a slice. I was completely outnumbered by all of them.
Apparently frosting on bread turns it into cake. But I’m still holding strong to the title bread. I mean I made it in a bread pan with a pumpkin bread recipe…it’s bread!!! LOL!
Chocolate, pumpkin, caramel…who cares if it is bread or cake, right?
You need this crazy goodness in your life right now!!!
