Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

  • Whisk flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.

  • Whisk pumpkin puree, brown sugar, butter, buttermilk, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl. Add the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.

  • Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan, spreading evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edges and remove to the rack. Continue cooling for at least 20 minutes before slicing.
