Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread – a light and tender pumpkin bread, full of all the delicious spices with a layer of sweetened cream cheese swirled throughout.
Pumpkin season is in full swing. What is your favorite pumpkin treat to make? Are you a classic Pumpkin Pie kind of person? I like that, but pretty much only on Thanksgiving. The rest of the time I like to mix it up! Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cake has to be one of my favorites.
I make a classic Pumpkin Bread pretty much every year that we freeze and enjoy all season long. But sometimes you want your pumpkin bread to be something special. Which is where this pumpkin cream cheese bread comes in!

This is basically a pumpkin bread with cream cheese swirl. You sweeten cream cheese and then add a layer to your bread. It is almost like a layer of cheesecake in with your bread. You will win over everyone with this delicious pumpkin bread, trust me!
I have made this bread at least 3 times in the last couple weeks. I sent a loaf with my son to a friends house when he was having a bunch of boys over. Our neighbor has two college boys and 1 of them was home one night during the week. I surprised him with a loaf to take back to his dorm room. He is pretty popular with the guys on his floor now.
How to Make Pumpkin Bread
- The key is to not over mix. Just like when you are making muffins, you want to mix until just combined or it will not be light and tender.
- Mix all of your wet ingredients together in a large bowl and set that aside.
- The dry ingredients all get mixed together and then you slowly add them to the wet ingredients.
- Make sure you really grease your loaf pan well, so your pumpkin cream cheese bread comes out and doesn’t stick to the bottom.
Quick breads are always great to make and have in the freezer. I like to slice them and wrap them in plastic wrap and then either place in a freezer safe bag or wrap in foil. Then we can just take out a slice here and there, and we don’t have to go through a whole loaf at once.
If you are looking for gifts to give friends, neighbors, teachers or anyone else this pumpkin cream cheese bread would be a hit. It has all the fall spices you know and love in pumpkin bread plus the almost cheesecake like layer makes it extra special.
