Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mini Loaves

Moist pumpkin chocolate chip loaves, baked up into individual mini loaves, and glazed with white chocolate ganache.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

I told you that batch of cinnamon streusel mini-muffins was making me want to make mini versions of everything, and I meant it. The very day I made those tasty little two-bite muffins, I ordered a mini-loaf pan that makes 18 adorable little mini loaves at once. I adore it.
These pumpkin loaves include some melted white chocolate. If you’re one of those people who don’t really care for white chocolate, and was therefore planning on making them without the white chocolate ganache glaze, PLEASE don’t click away!

As I discovered when developing the recipe for Gluten Free Caramel Cake, adding some melted white chocolate to the batter adds an amazing richness to the finished product that no one would ever attribute to white chocolate. It’s a handy little trick that I find myself coming back to time and again.

The baked loaves taste of pumpkin, spices, and chocolate – not white chocolate.

Ingredients
  • 8 oz white chocolate chips (if using a white chocolate bar, break it into small pieces)
  • 3¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 stick (4oz) butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup full-fat buttermilk
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups pumpkin puree
  • 10 oz. mini dark chocolate chips

FOR THE WHITE CHOCOLATE GANACHE GLAZE:
  • 5 oz white chocolate chips (if using a bar, break into small pieces)
  • ⅓ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp butter, cut into 4 pieces

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. If using a non-stick pan, spray the pan lightly with non-stick baking spray. If your pan is not non-stick, grease and flour each loaf cavity.
  3. Put the white chocolate in a small bowl and microwave it on medium for 1½ minutes. Stir the chocolate and microwave on medium for another 30 seconds - 1½ minutes, stirring after every 30 seconds, just until melted. Set aside.
  4. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice to a medium sized bowl and stir with a wire whisk to combine.
  5. In the bowl of an electric mixer, add the butter, vegetable oil, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Beat on medium-high speed until the mixture is lightened and fluffy, about 4-5 minutes. Stop every now and then to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  6. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl and beating on medium speed for 20 seconds after each addition.
  7. In a small bowl, add the buttermilk, vanilla, and pumpkin puree and whisk to combine.
  8. Add the pumpkin-buttermilk mixture and the dry ingredients in alternating additions, beating on low speed after each addition just long enough to combine: flour-pumkin-flour-pumpkin-flour-pumpkin-flour.
  9. Add the melted white chocolate and mix on low speed just until combined. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.
  10. Distribute the batter evenly among mini-loaf cavities; the batter should come almost to the top of each cavity.
  11. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in one of the loaves comes out batter-free.
  12. Allow the loaves to cool in the pan for 5 minutes and then gently remove using a small spatula or butter knife to a wire rack to cool completely.
PREPARE THE WHITE CHOCOLATE GANACHE:
  1. Add the chocolate to a small bowl.
  2. Pour the cream into a glass measuring cup and microwave on high for 45 seconds - 1 minute, just until it begins to boil.
  3. Pour the cream over the white chocolate and allow it to sit for 5 minutes. Stir the cream and chocolate, until all the chocolate is melted and the ganache is smooth. Add the butter, and stir until completely incorporated.
  4. Allow the ganache to cool to room temperature, then drizzle over the mini pumpkin loaves.

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
