Harvest Loaf Cake

When I was a preschool teacher, one of the parents used to make my day by bringing us this pumpkin harvest loaf in the mornings. The chocolate chips make it such a treat and for some reason Mark thinks they make it more substantial than most pumpkin breads :)


1 ½ cups flour

1 cup sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. cinn.

½ tsp. nutmeg

¼ tsp. cloves

¼ tsp. ginger

¼ cup Crisco oil

1 cup pumpkin

2 eggs

1 cup chocolate chips

1 cup walnuts – chopped

Directions: Grease a bread pan or meatloaf pan. Combine all ingredients except chips and nuts. Beat on low, then on medium for 2 minutes. Stir in chips and nuts. Bake at 350 for 60-70 minutes or until toothpick is clean. Cool

*Freezes well
