Pumpkin Bread {With Chocolate Chips!}

I made this last nice and it filled the house with the most refreshing aroma of fall. I can't say enough how much I love this season!

1 c butter, softened
3 c sugar
3 3ggs
3 c all purpose flour
1 tbls baking powder
1.5 tsp baking soda
1.5 tsp ground cinnamon
1.5 ground cloves
1.5 tsp ground nutmeg
1 (16oz) can solid pack pumpkin

In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs; mix well. Combine dry ingredients; stir into creamed mixture JUST until moistened. {Very important people} Stir in pumpkin. Pour into (2) greased 9x5x3 loaf pans. Bake 350 degrees for 1 hr or until bread tests done.

***Jenn's variations*** {I read several comments before selecting this recipe and did some of what they suggested with my own mix of things}
*Reduce cloves 1 tsp, added 1 tsp allspice
*Reduce to 1 c butter, added 1 cup applesauce<- calorie friendly
*2 cup white sugar, 1.5 c brown sugar

Other suggestions from website:
*Walnuts are good
*Chocolate chips are good
*Add a dash of salt (forgot to try)
*Add vanilla extract (forgot to try)
*Some said to add ginger... that wasn't for me

Now on another side note (sick of these yet)
I didn't have 2 loaf pans. I put the rest of my batter in muffin stoneware and baked for 30 min. Perfect! Also Markus says he thought this was too pumpkiny. He doesn't care for it like I do. This doesn't have a strong pumpkin flavor. It could stand to have more in it for me. It's not made with oil so you don't have that oily moistness that comes. Markus likes that better (not me). So basically this is an awesome BREAD recipe. If you are looking more for an oily banana nutish kind of bread, don't try this one.

Love, Jenn
