Sweet breads are some of my favorite recipes to whip up because they are easy to make, and you can eat a slice for breakfast or for a snack. Plus with so many versatile recipes out there, you never get bored.
My personal favorite is this chocolate chip pumpkin bread. It’s packed with the best Fall flavors, and the addition of chocolate makes it great for dessert too.
I use my Better Homes and Garden cookbook for the pumpkin bread recipe, then just add in some chocolate chips. I bet this recipe would be great with pecans or walnuts too, or a cream cheese swirl.
I love to enjoy a slice in the morning with big cup of coffee. Heaven.
