pumpkin chocolate chunk bread

I held back as long as I could, but the floodgates are now WIDE.OPEN.

Let the pumpkin-ing begin.

I’ve actually heard rumors that there is going to be a pumpkin shortage this year, so what I need you to do is head to your nearest grocery store and stock up!!!!

(Unless you go to my local grocery store…in which case, walk away quickly with your hands behind your back and no one will get hurt.)


Pumpkin bread is a fall classic and yet…I’VE NEVER MADE IT.

Such a travesty is just unfathomable, especially for a pumpkin fanatic like myself.

Lucky for me, I think I’ve stumbled on the holy grail of pumpkin breads on my first try! This has all the pumpkin spice flavors that we know and love as well as large and in charge chocolate chunks scattered throughout. Plus, it’s moist and soft and I’m pretty sure that we should eat it for breakfast every day until spring.

If you need me, that’s what I’ll be doing.


I mixed a little bit of International Delight Caramel Macchiato Creamer into the batter to give it an extra caramelly punch, which, in my opinion, is always a good life choice.ย For more International Delight inspiration, follow them on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram!

  1. I have heard that there is a pumpkin shortage, too. I hope not, I love baking with pumpkin. Your pumpkin bread looks fantastic!! Looks super moist and full of yumminess!

  2. Susan says:

    I’ve never made pumpkin bread either! Not sure why I haven’t. This looks amazing and a little chocolate never hurts ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Can’t believe you’ve never made pumpkin bread! THANK GOODNESS that you finally did ๐Ÿ™‚ This recipe looks fantastic!

  4. Lol! I wouldn’t dare go to your grocery store! ๐Ÿ™‚ And thankfully I don’t think you would dare go to mine, because I’m thinking you aren’t a country-bumkin-life-lovin’ kind of chic! So pumpkins should be safe in both our areas! Good thing, because I haven’t made a pumpkin bread ever before either! But I keep seeing it pop up everywhere! I am LOVING your version girlfriend! This looks incredibly moist, plus anything with the word “chunk” in it gets me all sorts of giddy! Pinned! Cheers, Joanne! <3

  5. Sues says:

    I bought SO much pumpkin last weekend after hearing about the shortage. But now I’m worried I didn’t get enough. My store was fully stocked, but something tells me it was going to go fast! This bread looks so delicious!

  6. Joanne, your first pumpkin bread looks awesome! I love the choc-pumpkin combo!
    I’ve been dreaming about baking something autumnal like this ๐Ÿ™‚ for me it’s gonna be cupcakes, but your chocolate chunks have got my full attention… maybe i’ll add some!

  7. I had NO idea there was a shortage! What??? This bread looks awesome and I love how tender and full of flavor it is ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Heather says:

    I went out and bought a few cans the day I heard about the shortage, but now I think I’d better go get more… what was I thinking?? 3 cans is not going to be enough!

  9. I want to eat the entire loaf with my morning coffee. SO GOOD!

  10. Karla says:

    Thanks for the consumer alert! I hadn’t heard about the pumpkin shortage but luckily I grabbed 23 cans, or so, October 1st in anticipation of all things pumpkin! One of those things being THIS bread. It looks SO moist and delicious!

  11. Pam says:

    Pumpkin bread + chocolate chunks? Yes please!

  12. How delicious – this looks wonderful even if I would have to make it without the creamer (not found in this part of the world) ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Adding chocolate to pumpkin bread can only make the bread that much better!! Mmm mmm.

  14. I adore pumpkin and the combination with chocolate chunk is just perfect.

  15. Yay for the commencement of your pumpkin-ing! Pumpkin Bread is a fall staple around here and it’s such a treat with chocolate…great use for caramel creamer, I need to try it!!!

  16. I have heard the same thing! And have sadly noticed it on my supermarket shelves – a lack of pumpkin goodness. I’ll have to seek some cans out though cuz this pumpkin bread needs to happen in my kitchen.

  17. Christine says:

    I recall a pumpkin shortage about 7 or 8 years ago. Still have a few cans from stocking up then, lol. Your bread looks so so delicious! Pinned!

  18. cheri says:

    Pumpkin and chocolate is so good together, love it!

  19. debbie says:

    Yum….this one looks very moist. I love the addition of the flavored creamer!

  20. Hotly Spiced says:

    A pumpkin shortage? I didn’t think that was possible. I do love your pumpkin bread and how excellent that it has chocolate chunks xx

  21. I went into panic today and bought more pumpkin at Costco. The fear is real!

  22. Yeah, I hope that pumpkin shortage isn’t real. I mean, I can stock up on pumpkins and roast them and cool them and purรฉe them myself, but I don’t wanna! I do it only once a year for one pie and that is it. But….if it also means I get to have this bread whenever I want, maybe I’ll make an exception!

  23. Gosh, Joanne, I really love the addition of the caramel macchiato creamer! So awesome! I need to make this!

  24. A pumpkin shortage? I hope that is just your side of the pond and not ours ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I love the colour of this, that’s the great thing about pumpkin isn’t it – gives such a nice colour to everything.

  25. I heard about that supposed pumpkin shortage! And let me just say that if that happens, I might have to invade your stash out of desperation! LOL. Or I could just settle for multiple loaves of this winner pumpkin bread!

  26. Mmm I need to remake my pumpkin biscoff/speculoos bread. Maybe I will add chocolate chunks too! As for the pumpkin shortage, isn’t that the claim every year? I actually very rarely use the canned stuff (I have it on hand just in case I run out though) and tend to make my own. Of course canned pumpkin shortage related to pumpkin shortage in general so I supposed I should just go buy a basket-full of pumpkins.

  27. I just made pumpkin bread, but I don’t think I can make more because of people like you! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Honestly, I have been going to all the grocery stores around my house and they are all sold out of pumpkin!!

  28. Kate says:

    Yay for pumpkin time!

  29. Kelly says:

    I bought a few extra cans when I heard about the shortage too. Yay for your first pumpkin recipe this year! This bread looks perfect!

  30. I haven’t heard about the pumpkin shortage problem yet! How will I ever get through November without pumpkin??? This bread looks amazing, Joanne!

  31. Oooh, this sounds good! I heard there was a pumpkin shortage, too, but I’m still seeing plenty in the shops over here! Just a shame we can’t get canned pumpkin very easily.
    It sounds wonderful with all those lovely spices and chocolate packed in .. mmm!

  32. Beth says:

    Well, I’ve made pumpkin bread before, but never with chocolate chunks. I must give this variation a try!

  33. Reeni says:

    I heard that too but since I buy it by the case I’m not worried! Hard to believe this is your first pumpkin bread! I LOVE it with all the chocolate chunks and the caramel.

  34. Johanna GGG says:

    mmm pumpkin and chocolate are such a great combination – I have a feeling you will need to bake/eat a lot of pumpkin bread to make up for lost time

  35. Oh – I heard about the shortage and I’m pretty sure now I have enough pumpkin until next fall! But I never grow tired of pumpkin and that means I have plenty to try your yummy recipe!

  36. The words “chocolate chunk” made my heart go thump-a-thump…I did hear about your pumpkin shortage and urge you to buy as much as possible and make as much delicious pumpkin treats as possible! This bread looks SO good!
