Servings 12


  • 1 can 15 ounces of Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of Cinnamon
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 4 ounces of Cream Cheese softened and cubed
  • 1 cup of Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup of Sugar
  • 1/2 cup of Oil
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 1/4 cup of Buttermilk
  • 2 1/4 cups of Flour
  • 1 teaspoon of Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon of Salt
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a saucepan, heat pumpkin puree, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice over medium heat, stirring often for about 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in cream cheese until fully mixed. If needed, return to heat for 30 seconds.
  • Stir in brown sugar, sugar, and oil. Allow it to cool for 5 minutes before adding the eggs.
  • Whisk in eggs and buttermilk until smooth. Then, fold in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix until just combined.
  • Ensure the mixture has cooled before adding chocolate chips. Save some chips to sprinkle on top.
  • Grease two 8 1/2 inch x 4 1/2 inch loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray or butter. Pour in the batter.
  • Bake for 44-48 minutes or until the center is cooked through. If it’s browning too quickly, cover with foil halfway through baking.
  • Check doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center; it should come out clean.
  • Let the pumpkin loaves cool for 20 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. Allow them to cool completely.


Use unsweetened pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie mix, for the best results.
