Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Would this even be a real food blog if we didn't feature pumpkin chocolate chip bread in the fall? Call me a sucker but I love love love when the pumpkin flavored deserts and treats start making their debut after labor day. This treat just sings cozy on up with me in your socks and long johns and enjoy yourself. This bread has a deep rich flavor of chocolate, pumpkin, and spice. You will probably regret not doubling it so you can freeze yourself a second loaf for next week. Don't say I didn't warn you. 

2 eggs
3/4 cups sugar
3/4 cups brown sugar
1 can pumpkin puree (about a cup and a half) 
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips 

Mix together all of your ingredients in a standard mixer in the order listed above. Pour batter into a greased 9x5 loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 65 minutes. 

This is a wonderful recipe to double or triple. You can make loaves for your neighbors and they will probably be so grateful they will rake your leaves for you.
