Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread
with Eggnog Glaze
This bread is studded with mini chocolate chips and chopped pecans. The eggnog glaze take this already super bread over the top. A delicious change from basic pumpkin bread. If you don’t have chocolate chips on hand, add raisins or dried cranberries instead.
What is a “Quick” Bread
Quick bread refers to any bread that is quick to make because it doesn’t require kneading or rising time. The reason for this is the leavener in quick breads is usually baking powder or baking soda, which when combined with moisture, starts the rising process immediately. In the case of double-acting baking powder, oven heat causes a second burst of rising power. Eggs can also be used to leaven quick breads. The quick bread genre includes most biscuits, muffins, popovers and a wide variety of sweet and savory loaf breads.
Pumpkin Chocolate Bread with Eggnog Glaze is the perfect accompaniment to your holiday table.
