Check out my Pumpkin Spice Donut Muffins for another pumpkin-flavored treat or dessert!Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl LoafIf you are looking at this recipe because my Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Muffins led you here, welcome! If not, welcome also! I was so in love with the muffins, I just had to try the recipe as a loaf, and it actually may have beat out the muffins! I don’t know how that is possible since I couldn’t stop raving about (or eating) the muffins. Anyway, I would say I have another great pumpkin treat or dessert with this Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Loaf. In fact, great just doesn’t seem like the right word for this bread. Maybe amazing, grand, delightful…I could go on and on, but I will get to the all-important recipe.Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Loaf RecipeThis Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Loaf recipe includes my homemade Pumpkin Spice. Homemade spices are stronger than spices bought in the store, so if you are using a store-bought pumpkin spice, double the amount. Since I used 1 tablespoon of homemade pumpkin spice, use 2 tablespoons if not homemade.Pumpkin Loaf Ingredients Eggs–room temperature (Out of eggs? No problem!

You will swirl in the beaten cream cheese and confectioners sugar mixture twice before baking it. First, preheat the oven to 375°F. Next, in a large bowl, beat in eggs, vegetable oil, vanilla, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Then, stir in the flour, pumpkin spice, baking soda, and salt. Pour half of the batter into the greased bread pan, followed by half the cream cheese mixture. Use a butter knife to gently swirl in all that sweetness! Then, add the second half of the batter into the bread pan, swirling in the rest of the cream cheese. Bake this for 30-40 minutes. This would be a wonderful treat to share at Thanksgiving, or anytime, really!PRO TIP: The ONLY thing I would possibly change is adding more cream cheese swirl! (Just double the cream cheese recipe and add it in 3 layers with some on top.) But, the bread would actually be fantastic without the cream cheese mixture if you simply wanted a moist pumpkin bread. Just look at that crumb!! It practically melts in your mouth!
