Pumpkin Bread

My dear sweet friend, Kimberly, famous for her pumpkin roll, came to my latest speaking engagement.  She is just the sweetest thing!!  She hands me a bag and I knew instantly what was in it!  I rushed home afterwards and tore into the bag.  Ahhhh, pumpkin roll….. wait!  Where’s the cream cheese middle?  Where’s the roll??

Please don’t think I was disappointed by all means!!  I was thrilled to have something home baked by my dear friend.  I just thought it was her traditional….. ahem…. the pumpkin roll I am addicted to!!  Literally, I would attack any teacher, student or office staff in our middle school who would dare take a bite of the coveted pumpkin roll.  Many a students’ hands were slapped away from the confection!!

But anyway, the pumpkin roll may not have been the traditional happy dance roll, it was, however, YUMMY!!  In fact, I think it is like…. my new favorite!  I love pumpkin bread….. but the extra ingredient CHOCOLATE chunks…. OH MY WORD!!  Can I just say, “To die for!!”

Kimberly is one of my readers and I hope she will share HER recipe with us.  But in the meantime, I found one with the ingredients she listed (She is such a sweetie!  She listed the ingredients in case I was allergic!!  Now that is a true friend!!).

Hope you take a minute or two in the near future to try this yummy, pumpkin bread recipe.  And Kimberly if you would please, leave your recipe in a comment!  We would love your version….. cause I know it is YUMMO!!
