This Triple Chocolate Pumpkin Bread is incredibly soft and moist with a hint of pumpkin spice. I used both unsweetened cocoa powder and semi-sweet chocolate chips in this bread. Once it cools I top the Pumpkin Bread with an amazing chocolate ganache. This Triple Chocolate Pumpkin Bread is perfect for chocolate lovers!

I browned the butter to add a nice nutty flavor to the bread. I also added in some buttermilk to keep the bread super moist. The pumpkin flavor is not pronounced in this bread but it gives the bread tons of moisture. It is perfect for dessert or breakfast!

How to make Triple Chocolate Pumpkin Bread

  • Preheat oven: To 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 5 pan with nonstick cooking spray, set aside.
  • Brown butter: Add butter to a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat until light brown / caramel in color. 5-8 minutes. Allow the butter to cool.
  • Combine dry ingredients: Meanwhile in a medium bowl combine flour, cocoa powder, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, baking powder, and salt, set aside.
  • Combine wet ingredients: Add the cooled butter to a large bowl along with the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, eggs, buttermilk and vanilla. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients making sure not to over mix. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Bake: Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out mostly clean.
  • Cool: Let the bread cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Serve: Once cooled pour the ganache over the pumpkin bread, smoothing top if desired, and serve.

How to make Chocolate Ganache

I top the Triple Chocolate Pumpkin Bread off with a simple Chocolate Ganache. The ganache is super easy to whip up. To make the chocolate ganache melt chocolate and heavy cream in the microwave until smooth and melted. You can also cook the ganache over a double boiler. Allow the ganache to cool for about 2-3 minutes. Spread on top of the cooled cake. I made the ganache thicker so it is spreadable on the bread. If the ganache is too thick add more heavy cream.
