pumpkin chocolate chip bread

Whenever I make this pumpkin chocolate chip bread I always get requests for the recipe.    It's super moist and you just can't go wrong with the combination of chocolate and pumpkin.  This is my mom's pumpkin bread recipe with chocolate chips thrown in.

pumpkin chocolate chip bread (my mom)
makes 2 loaves
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup nuts, optional
4 eggs
3 cups sugar
2 cups canned pumpkin puree
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
1 cup or more chocolate chips

Combine flour, soda, salt and cinnamon.  Mix with chopped nuts.  Set aside.  Thoroughly beat eggs, sugar, pumpkin, oil and water.  Fold in flour mixture.  Pour into 2 greased 4 1/2 x 8 1/2-inch loaf pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for 60 to 70 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
