Oh my! This sour cream pumpkin bread with chocolate chips is over the top delicious! What an unusual yet heavenly combination with the earthy pumpkin and tangy sour cream. And then the chocolate chips take this bread to the whole next level! It’s almost too sweet to be a bread, but not quite sweet enough to qualify as a cake I’d say. It’s perfect in the morning with a hot cup of coffee or with your afternoon tea—delightful. Just make this cake, I mean bread, you’ll see! To jazz it up for a decadent dessert serve with fresh cream and an episode of Modern Family.

This recipe is inspired by Charishma Ramchandani’s Sour Cream Banana Bread which I make at least once a month if not more. It’s so good!
This looks amazing, Sally! I’ll bet the sour cream makes it really moist, too. I am loving all of the pumpkin recipes this time of year 🙂
Making note of both recipes….I so love both pumpkin and banana bread…looks amazing!!
