It’s pumpkin spice latte (aka PSL) season and the other day while I was enjoying a cup along with a slice of pumpkin bread I thought, why not combine the two and make a pumpkin spice latte bread? The basic idea was a pumpkin quick bread with both pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spices along with a hint of coffee flavour for the latte part. The coffee flavour comes from espresso powder, I like to make my own, and and it’s easy to just throw it into the recipe with the other ingredients. Everything was set for the pumpkin spice latte quick bread but I had chocolate on my mind and I just couldn’t resist adding a
lot of chocolate chips to the bread! Oh wow! The pumpkin, the spice, the coffee, along with the chocolate chips, what an amazing flavour combination! I have been enjoying eating this chocolate chip pumpkin spice latte bread for breakfasts and for snacks all week!
