This bread is sooo good! I didn't add walnuts and was glad. Instead of in loaf pans I made it in brownie pans and cut into squares..and made cupcakes for the kids with cream cheese frosting. It was a huge hit with adults and kids alike! A+-23 Nov 2000

by sillyfish

this is not my first time making this bread and it has always been a huge hit, very nice flavor, I have made it with 2 cups pumpkin puree and canned pumpkin, no difference, both very yummy. The only thing I noticed is I had to bake it about 10 minutes longer than recommended. Thanks for this recipe, will make over and over again.-09 Oct 2005

Cream Cheese Pumpkin Bread Recipe

I smell pumpkin in the air. This time of the year has me craving pumpkin treats. According to my Pinterest feed, I am not alone in this. Pumpkin treats galore! Also, the extra-long drive-thru line for pumpkin spice lattes is a sure sign that autumn has arrived. To celebrate the fall season, I have a scrumptious cream cheese pumpkin bread recipe to share with you.

This pumpkin bread recipe is decadent much like my Baked Pumpkin French Toast with a Maple Glaze. It’s a real treat!

One of my favorite pumpkin recipes.

The slightly cooler weather has me excited to turn my oven on again, after a summer hiatus, and start baking. My first pumpkin indulgence of the fall season was a wonderful cream cheese pumpkin bread. It was oh-so yummy and something I’ll be making again soon.

I’m sharing my cream cheese pumpkin bread recipe with you today, in case you plan on indulging a little this fall season.

From baked goods, to candy corn, and Halloween candy there are so many goodies around this time of the year. It is so hard to resist them all. This cream cheese pumpkin bread is one of my favorite fall recipes… right up there with Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins, Pumpkin Bars with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting and Pumpkin Spice Latte Mug Cake.

If you like pumpkin pie and cheesecake, you’re totally going to love this pumpkin bread with a cream cheese swirl. This cream cheese filled pumpkin bread is wonderful and goes perfectly with your morning coffee.

Tips for making Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread:

  1. No need for a standing mixer – you just combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients.
  2. You will need a hand mixer to make the cream cheese layer.
  3. Pour some of the pumpkin batter into well greased loaf pans. Top with the cream cheese layer, and then end with more pumpkin batter. You can see the white layer below (to the right), and I made sure to completely cover that layer with the pumpkin mixture.
  4. Test this bread with a toothpick to make sure the center is done.

You can see below that the center of the bread is slightly sunken inward. We happen to like our breads just a wee bit on the undercooked side. It’s a fine balancing act however, because you don’t want a mushy raw bread. All ovens cook differently, so definitely be careful to cook it all the way through without overcooking. Mine took approximately 55 minutes in the oven.

The Holidays are coming, and this is an excellent bread to give as gifts.

  1. Make the bread.
  2. Freeze it till you need it.
  3. Remove from freezer and wrap with pretty paper.
  4. GIVE!

For other great pumpkin recipes, no worries, I’ve gotcha covered!

Enjoy this pumpkin time of year!

How To Make Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Icing

Amazingly you make this incredible bread without a lot of effort! No one will believe how simple it is to make.

Start off by preheating the oven and lining your loaf pan with parchment paper.

Then mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, and pumpkin pie spice in a medium bowl.

Then using another bowl, mix together the eggs, white sugar, and brown sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Then add the oil, milk, and pumpkin puree and combine with a whisk.

Slowly add the pumpkin puree mixture to the dry ingredients and stir well. Make sure there aren&rsquot any lumps.

Then pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for 60-70 minutes. It&rsquos done once a toothpick can be inserted in the center and come out clean.

To make the icing, you will need to beat together the cream cheese and butter using a hand mixer or a stand mixer.

Then sprinkle in the powdered sugar a little bit at a time and continue to mix until the frosting is fluffy.

Add in the ground cinnamon and milk to thin out the frosting. Pour the icing on top of the pumpkin bread, slice, and enjoy!

How to make pumpkin cheesecake bread

  1. BATTER. Mix together the eggs, oil, sugar and vanilla. Then fold in the pumpkin. In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Then pour the dry ingredients into the wet pumpkin mixture and stir until smooth.
  2. FILLING. Use an electric mixer to cream together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Then mix in the egg and vanilla. Spoon the mixture into a ziplock bag and cut off the tip (this makes it easier to assemble in the pan).
  3. ASSEMBLY. Pour half of the pumpkin batter into a greased 9࡫″ loaf pan. Then pipe the cream cheese filling evenly over top. Next pour the remaining pumpkin batter on top of the filling (no more than 3/4 of the way full).
  4. BAKE. Bake in the oven at 350°F for about 55 to 65 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack to let cool, then slice.

Tips for Making this Pumpkin Sweet Bread

Since I love making sweet bread like this pumpkin cream cheese bread, I have learned a few tricks to making them turn out perfect every time.

  • Use a spoon to hand mix the wet and dry ingredients until they are just barely combined for a lighter and fluffier option. Over mixing can make them tough and chewy.
  • Bake in a 9″x13″ casserole dish for easier portion control when slicing
  • When freezing for future use, cut into individual portion sizes and wrap so it is easy to grab only what you need out of the freezer

Yum. All things pumpkin or pumpkin spice during this time of the year is like catnip to me. I dont know what it is but it is just a heavenly smell and the most delicious taste I guess that is heightened because it is fall. The addition of the cream cheese makes this bread even better and moister.

It's that time of year when I absolutely can't seem to get my fill of pumpkin. This Cream Cheese Filled Pumpkin Bread is such a wonderful tasty recipe. The combination of pumpkin and cream cheese is classic, and the recipe is so easy to follow and make, you simply need to make this to complete your Fall baking needs.

This looks so good! It's not pumpkin season at all, but I'm still finding myself craving some pumpkin bread now. Yum.

Moist Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Frosting

This Moist Pumpkin Bread topped with Cream Cheese Frosting is the best way to enjoy pumpkin this fall with friends and family!

Soooo, for the first few times I listened to Taylor Swift’s new song, “Shake it Off” I thought she was saying: “And the Baker’s gonna bake, bake, bake, bake, bake.” #foodbloggerproblems! It makes no sense at all but I’ve got food on my mind and I’ve been known to be terrible at understanding song lyrics and thinking they’re something totally ridiculous. I also have this Moist Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Frosting on my mind like allll the time.

To those of you who don’t get to experience the weather changes and live where it’s always hot or perfect 70 degree year-round paradise, you have the go-ahead to start inhaling all things pumpkin if you haven’t already. Hello Pumpkin Cupcakes and Pumpkin Pancakes! Sometimes I think it would be nice to live where it doesn’t get lower than 50 and I never have to scrap snow/ice off my car but then I think I’d miss the cool crisp air and wearing coats (yes, sometimes multiple) and boots.

I can’t believe I am going to admit this, but this fall weather is making me miss high school. Who says that. Mostly I miss playing field hockey. I loved being part of a team and running with a purpose– to whack a ball into a box. It’s one of the few sports where your uniform is a skirt/kilt. Plus, field hockey requires you to be in a squatting position pretty much the whole game so my rear was definitely in great shape. ha!

I miss college too! Even the classes and studying. There’s just something so satisfying about learning and also that relieved feeling you get when you leave your last class of the long day and head home to change into some comfy clothes and eat a warm bowl of soup with some toast (yeah, I ate that a lot in college… I really like toast) before hitting the books.

Okay, enough with my ramblings. THIS bread is A-mazing. So so moist and for dayyyys, but it probably will be gobbled up before day 3. And then there is the heavenly cream cheese frosting on top. I really should have covered the sides with it too but then it would be too much like a cake… which it kinda already is if you glance down at the calories or don’t.

Enjoy this yummy Moist Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Frosting and this lovely fall season!
