Ya'll this bread was soooo good. Cierra doesn't even like pumpkin but we managed to eat half the loaf in a day. Opppps.
Heres the recipe:
1.5 cups or 222g Bob's Red Mill 1:1 Flour - the blue bag
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt - we use kosher
4 tsp of ground ginger
1 tsp of cinnamon
a pinch of nutmeg
1/2 cup of softened butter
1/2 cup sugar - we use cane sugar
1 tsp of vanilla
2 large eggs
1 cup of pure pumpkin puree, you could either use canned or fresh
1/2 cup of chocolate chips - we used chunks
1 tsp of butter
3 tablespoons of goat cheese
1/2 cup of icing sugar
splash of vanilla
1/2 of lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 350' and grease a loaf pan with oil or butter
Combine all your dry ingredients in a bowl except for sugar, whisk them together and set aside.
Cream your butter and sugar with a hand or stand mixer - mix until creamy.
add eggs one at a time to the bowl with sugar and butter
Add vanilla and pumpkin, and mix until combined. Make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl and mix again.
Once your wet ingredients are looking well mixed, slowly add your pre-mixed dry ingredients
Mix on low to medium speed for a minute or two. Make sure to keep scraping the sides down of the bowl.
Add chocolate chips and mix by hand.
Pour batter into greased loaf pan and put in preheated oven for 50 minutes or until there is no batter on a toothpick when poking the loaf.
Once golden brown and toothpick checked, cool on a cooling rack for a few hours.
Remove the loaf from the pan - it should be easy if you did a good job greasing
Place loaf back on rack or cutting board
While the loaf is cooling, it's time to make your icing.
ICING: With a hand mixer, mix all ingredients until combined and well mixed. The consistency should be a glaze, if you find it not so loose add a splash of water or until the consistency of your liking.
Spread icing on the loaf and sprinkle cinnamon if you feel fit
Slice and serve
