Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 2 cups water, for steaming
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 box (16 ounces) pumpkin bread mix, plus ingredients called for on box
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • Premade cream cheese frosting for topping, as desired


  • 9" x 5" Nonstick Loaf Pan
  • Stand or Hand Mixer
  • Deluxe Reversible Rack (bottom layer only)
  • Large Bowl
  • Step 1

    Add 2 cups water to the pot. Spray the nonstick loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Step 2

    To make the loaf, add the loaf mix and the ingredients called for on the box. Prepare according to the box directions. Fold in the mini chocolate chips. Transfer batter to prepared pan.

  • Step 3

    Place the bottom layer of the Deluxe Reversible Rack in the lower position. Place the pan on top of the rack, then place the rack in the pot.

  • Step 4

    Close the lid and move the slider to STEAMCRISP. Select STEAM & BAKE, set temperature to 320°F, and set time to 25 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (PrE will display for approx. 20 minutes as the unit steams, then the timer will start counting down).

  • Step 5

    When cooking is complete, check doneness by inserting a wooden toothpick into the middle of the cake. If it comes out clean, remove the pan and let cool for at least 1 hour. If the toothpick comes out with moist crumbs stuck to it, continue to bake until the toothpick comes out clean.

  • Step 6

    When the loaf is cooled, top with premade cream cheese frosting, as desired.
