Ingredients For cake mix pumpkin bread

  • 1 box
    spice cake mix, any brand
  • 1 can
    (15 oz) pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1/2-1 c
    semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2-1 c
    chopped pecans (optional)

How To Make cake mix pumpkin bread

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350^ and grease (or spray with cooking spray) a 9' x 5" loaf pan.
  • 2
    In a large bowl, completely mix the box of cake mix and the can of pumpkin, making sure any lumps are broken up and blended in.
  • 3
    Add 1/2 to 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 to 1 cup chopped pecans (if using); blend well.
  • 4
    Pour batter into prepared pan (top with additional chocolate chips, if desired) and bake for 50-60 minutes or until it tests done with a toothpick.
  • 5
    When you remove loaf from oven, allow to sit in pan for around 5 minutes before removing from pan.
  • 6
    NOTE: I used 1 cup of chocolate chips in the batter. I felt like there were too many. The chocolate flavor overpowered the pumpkin spice flavor. In the future I will only use 1/2 cup. Also, I sprinkled additional chips on top, but this makes it difficult to tip out of the pan without making a big chocolate mess on your counter top.
