  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 stick unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • 1 cup unsweetened pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves (optional)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

  2. Grease either four mini loaf pans or one regular sized loaf pan and add a strip of parchment paper to each for easy removal.

  3. Using a hand or stand mixer, cream together the eggs, sugar, honey, and butter.

  4. Beat in the unsweetened pumpkin puree (be careful not to use pumpkin pie mix), vanilla and buttermilk.

  5. In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, and ground cloves, if using.

  6. Add the dry ingredients into the wet batter and mix until fully incorporated.

  7. Stir in the chocolate chips.

  8. Pour the batter evenly into the four mini loaf pans or the one large loaf pan.

  9. For the mini loaves, bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. If you're using one large pan, you may need to add 5 or 10 minutes to the baking time.

  10. Allow to cool before removing from the pan.

  11. Serve and enjoy!
