One of my favourite autumn foods is pumpkin. Pumpkins always make the table cozier no matter whether you use it in salt recipes like pumpkin soup or in sweet recipes like this pumpkin bread with chocolate.

I promise you that this will be the moistest and the most delicious pumpkin bread you’ve ever tasted. I can’t help myself when I see chocolate and that’s why my pumpkin bread got so chocolate-ish but you may keep the color more orange if you want. 

Here’s the recipe:

Chocolate pumpkin bread

Dry ingredients

  • 1 tea cup unrefined sugar
  • ½ tea cup Demerara sugar
  • 1 1/3 tea cups spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger powder

Liquid ingredients

  • 1 tea cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tea cup melted coconut butter
  • 1/3 tea cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate mixture ingredients

  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 70 g dark chocolate


  • Mix the dry and the liquid ingredients separately and then mix them together and stir.
  • Divide the mixture in two and add the cocoa powder and the chopped chocolate to one of the halves
  • Pour the two halves of the mixture in turns in a cake tin and stir softly with a spoon handle
  • Bake it in preheated oven at 170° C for about 45-50 minutes. Check with a toothpick if it is ready. If the toothpick is sticky leave it in the oven for few more minutes.
