1. Preheat the Oven 

Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). This ensures that your oven is hot and ready when you finish preparing the batter.

2. Prepare the Loaf Pan 

Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan with butter or cooking spray to prevent the bread from sticking to the pan. You can also line the pan with parchment paper for easier removal.

3. Prepare the Crostini 

Mix dry ingredients. Separately, combine pumpkin, oil, eggs, sugar. Gradually blend wet into dry.

4. Prepare the Chocolate Swirl 

In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt ½ cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth. Set aside.

5. Assemble the Bread 

Pour half of the pumpkin batter into the prepared loaf pan. Drizzle half of the melted chocolate over the batter. Use a knife or skewer to gently swirl the chocolate into the batter. Repeat with the remaining batter and chocolate.

6. Bake the Bread 

Place the loaf pan in the preheated oven and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Keep an eye on the bread towards the end of the baking time to avoid over-browning.

7. Cool the Bread 

Once baked, remove the bread from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes. Then, transfer the bread to a wire rack to cool completely.
