Nutella Pumpkin Bread

If you like pumpkin and chocolate you just might like this recipe which combines two great flavors into one delicious bread.  The bread is also seasoned with nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger which produces amazing aromas in the kitchen as the bread bakes.  The chocolate hazelnut flavor from the nutella and the pumpkin puree mixes well together, creating an excellent fall bread recipe.  I mixed the batter well, resulting in a dark brown batter.  Another option is to fold in the nutella at the end, creating a swirl of chocolate in the middle.
