Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

October 14, 2011 § 9 Comments

I know what you’re thinking. “More pumpkin, really?”  But here’s the thing, you can make this bread, and these pancakes, and you’ll make exact use of one can of pumpkin puree. No leftovers!  Isn’t that exciting? I was a little excited.

I had initially set out to make muffins, but discovered last night that my mini muffin tin does not actually fit inside my oven. To the person who thought it was trendy and cool to put tiny sleek ovens in new apartments- you clearly don’t bake! Ok rant done. Sort of. I’m still fuming a bit.  The funny thing is, when I was viewing apartments, friends of mine in the neighborhood mentioned to be weary of the ovens in new buildings.  They had viewed an apartment and actually decided not to live there because the oven was so ridiculously tiny.  Seriously, the things you have to consider…

I suppose we’ll make due with just regular sized muffins for a while.  Ironically enough, that pan actually fits in the oven! Ok, enough of this. Have yourself a fabulous weekend!
