Pumpkin bread and cream cheese put together?! Say no more! The combo is SO GOOD and truly a no fail for anyone that doesn’t bake regularly like myself!
I am using a pumpkin bread pre mix that I picked up from Trader Joe’s but have a homemade pumpkin mix recipe for you as well! Courtesy of my mama!
Let’s get started!

Use either boxed pumpkin mix and follow the directions or here is a Homemade Pumpkin Bread
1 cup pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling
1 large egg
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cream Cheese Filling
1 large egg
4 ounces cream cheese softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350. If using boxed pumpkin mix, follow the box direction for mixing up the pumpkin bread.
If making homemade version, start by combining pumpkin, egg, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Fold in the pumpkin spice, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt just until just combined.
In a s bowl, mix the cream cheese ingredients together.
In a greased loaf pan, add half of the pumpkin mixture. Pour cream cheese mixture on top and take a knife to swirl it around. Pour the remaining pumpkin mix on top.
Bake at 350 for for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean in the center. Let cool for 15 minutes before removing from loaf pan.
