1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon of sugar
2 large eggs, fake eggs are perfect
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and butter a 9x5 dish.
2. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and baking soda together. Whisk in the melted butter. Gradually add in the eggs, pumpkin, vanilla and buttermilk until you have a nice consistency. Fold in the walnuts and chocolate chips. Transfer the batter to the dish and sprinkle the tablespoon of sugar on top.
