Pumpkin Bread with Chocolate Chips~

Adapted from Martha Stewart

3 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon allspice

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups canned pumpkin

1 cup sugar

1 cup packed dark brown sugar

4 eggs

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 2/3 cups buttermilk

2-3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350º.  Grease pans and line bottom with parchment.  Grease top of parchment.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and salt.  Set aside.

In mixer with paddle attachment, combine pumpkin and sugars (you can also do this with a hand mixer).  Add eggs and oil, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.  With the mixer on low alternate adding the flour and buttermilk, putting half of each in at a time.  Mix till just combined.  Stir in chocolate chips by hand.

Divide batter into loaf pans.  Bake for about an hour or till toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.  Cool 10 minutes then remove from pans and cool completely. Will make two large loaves or 4-5 smaller loaves.  Start checking smaller loaves at 40-45 minutes.
