Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Swirl:

Glorious pumpkin quick bread is one of my favorite things to make when fall arrives. It’s quick, it’s easy, it fills the house with the best scent, and it tastes fabulous! One of my favorite recipes is this Really Good Pumpkin Bread. It’s a go-to.

However, one pumpkin quick bread is certainly not enough, so I decided to make and share another. Meet this Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Swirl.

I’ve seen versions of this recipe floating around the internet for years. I’ve always wanted to try it, but I thought it was overdone so I avoided it. This year the craving was intense, so I gave in and whipped one up.

My goodness, am I ever glad I did. This Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Swirl is a winner! I often get asked what I do with all of the delicious goodies I make. (I live alone so that’s a fair question.) Sometimes I give them away, sometimes I freeze them, and sometimes they (unfortunately) end up in the trash which is only because I know I can’t and/or shouldn’t eat a whole cake myself!

That being said, this was one prepared recipe I couldn’t get rid of and ended up enjoying almost every slice of it myself over the course of a week. It’s that good.

I love the rich pumpkin spice flavor married with a sweet but tangy layer of cream cheese. It’s almost like pumpkin cheesecake in a bread form (and way easier to make).

This is one you must try! Let me show you how to make it!

How to Make Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Swirl:

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.

Line an 8 x 4 loaf pan with parchment paper and spray with baking spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and spices. Set aside. I’ve included a printable recipe card below for a full rundown of the recipe ingredients and instructions.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, sour cream, eggs, canola oil, and vanilla extract. Add this mixture to your flour mixture and mix until just combined.

Next, mix up the cream cheese filling by whisking together the cream cheese, sugar, egg yolk, flour, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.

To your prepared loaf pan, add half of the pumpkin mixture. Create a small well in the batter and then add in the cream cheese mixture. Leave a 1/4-inch border around the edges of the pan. Top with the remaining batter, and smooth out the top.

Bake for about 60 – 65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Allow the loaf to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, use the parchment paper to remove the loaf from the pan, place it on a rack, and allow it to cool completely.

In the meantime, prepare the cinnamon glaze by whisking together the confectioners’ sugar, cinnamon, and enough milk to achieve a thick drizzling consistency.

Once cooled, drizzle the glaze onto the bread. Slice and enjoy!
