Cream Cheese Pumpkin Bread – Filled with Cream Cheese!

Cream Cheese Pumpkin Bread

Okay, I am going to put myself out there and hope you don’t all hate me. I have a confession – I don’t LOVE all of the pumpkin things that pop up each fall. Pumpkin spice latte? Not for me! Pumpkin pie? No thanks! Also, I am SUPER picky about my sweet breads, because there is nothing I hate more than a dry bread. Don’t even waste my time with that! With all that being said, this Cream Cheese Pumpkin Bread may just be my new favorite fall recipe! It is moist, loaded with pumpkin and spice flavor and it has a fantastic rich cream cheese center.

Here are some tips for making my Recipe for Cream Cheese Pumpkin Bread:

  • Be sure to use PUMPKIN PUREE, not pumpkin pie filling in this recipe. The pie filling will be way too sweet, and it won’t give you as much of that pumpkin flavor.
  • This bread can also be made without the cream cheese center if you would prefer!
  • You can make this pumpkin bread ahead of time and freeze it for up to three months if you would like!

These are the ingredients you will need for this recipe for Pumpkin Bread Filled with Cream Cheese:
