The recipe came from www.Foodista.com – There were so many different Banana Cake recipes to choose from.  I knew I wanted to add chocolate chips, so I searched Banana Cake with Chocolate Chips.  My piece was still warm when I ate it after dinner – it was to die for!

Also, a great holiday movie and one of my family’s favorite, A Christmas Story, has a very funny scene where the dad tries to sneak a piece of delicious Turkey – but never makes it due to the neighbors dogs getting to it first!

A Yummy recipe from Jen’s Blog on Homegood’s site:

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

1-15 oz can pure pumpkin

– 4 eggs, beaten

– 1 cup oil

– 1/2 cup cold water

– 3-1/2 cups flour

– 3 cups sugar

– 2 tsp baking soda

– 1-1/2 tsp cinnamon

– 1/2 tsp nutmeg

 – 1 tsp salt

– 2 cups chocolate chips

Combine pumpkin, eggs, oil and water.  Mix flour, baking soda, sugar, spices and salt in a separate bowl and add pumpkin mixture.  Mix well.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Place batter into 2 well greased loaf pans and bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until done.  Making 2 loafs allows you to share one enjoy the other!
