Easy Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Swirl

Over the past few years, I’ve came to realize that there are really two types of people in the world when it comes to pumpkin flavored foods.

Those who LOVE pumpkin and those who dislike pumpkin.

I personally love ALL THINGS pumpkin, but my husband thankfully falls in the second category.

You’ll notice I said thankfully and not unfortunately, and that’s because his dislike means more pumpkin bread for me and my boys to enjoy- ha!

All jokes aside, even if you’re normally not a big pumpkin pie type person I would encourage you to give this pumpkin cream cheese bread a try.

 

Reasons You’ll Love Pumpkin Bread With Cream Cheese Swirl:

  • It’s super easy to make, with no fancy mixer required
  • The taste is heavenly with the combination of pumpkin pie spices and sweet cheesecake
  • The texture is soft and moist thanks to pumpkin puree, sour cream, and cream cheese
  • It looks beautiful with the bright orange pumpkin and white cream cheese swirls

Tips for the Best Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread

Grease or Line Your Pan

I always recommend using parchment paper or non-stick cooking spray to ensure your bread doesn’t stick to the pan.

 

Use a Cookie Scoop for the Cream Cheese Filling

To make the process quicker and less messy, I recommend using a cookie scoop to scoop in the cream cheese filling.

 

Use Pumpkin Puree

Make sure you use pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.

They’re NOT the same nor are they interchangeable, so carefully check your labels and use pumpkin puree.

 

Use Room Temperature Cream Cheese

Anytime you’re working with cream cheese in a recipe, you want to make sure you’ve left the cream cheese soften to room temperature so that it more easily mixes into your batter.

I recommend setting it out on the counter 30 minutes – 1 hour ahead of time.

*Alternatively, you can soften it using your microwave’s softening setting, or microwave at 30% power for 30 seconds at a time, until softened.

 

Don’t overmix

As with all quick bread recipes, you want to make sure you don’t overmix the batter to avoid it becoming dense, tough, or dry.

Stir until JUST combined and the flour is incorporated.

 

Don’t overbake

Equally important as not overmixing, you want to avoid overbaking your pumpkin cream cheese bread.

I recommend baking on the lowest recommended time (or 5 minutes under if you have an older oven) and baking until the bread is a light golden brown and has pulled away from the sides slightly.

 

Cool before slicing

It’s always tempting to want to dig in right away, but if your pumpkin cream cheese bread is too hot when you slice it, it will tear and make a crumbly mess.

Instead, wait 10-15 minutes or longer for your pumpkin loaf to cool so that you get clean, even slices.

 

How to Store Leftover Cream Cheese Pumpkin Bread

Store any leftover pumpkin bread in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.

This bread can also be frozen for up to 3 months.

To freeze, fully cool your bread, slice, and wrap individual slices with plastic wrap before placing in a freezer safe bag or container.

Cream Cheese Pumpkin Bread Topping Ideas

This pumpkin bread is absolutely delicious served plain by itself, but if you want to add a little something extra, here’s a few yummy topping ideas:

  • Drizzled Maple Syrup
  • Slather of Cookie Butter or Pumpkin Butter
  • A Dollop of Whipped Cream
  • A Scoop of Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

  • Author: Kindly Unspoken
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 55 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
  • Yield: 10-12 slices 1x
  • Category: Dessert
  • Method: Oven
  • Cuisine: American

Ingredients

Units Scale

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened (I used 1/3 fat)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour (if mixture is too runny, add 1 additional tbsp)
  • 1 large egg

Pumpkin Bread

  • 1 and 2/3 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (I used light)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg

Instructions

Cream Cheese Filling

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese, sugar, flour, and egg and use an electric hand mixer or whisk to mix until smooth and creamy. The mixture should be thick and not overly runny. If it is too runny, add 1 additional tbsp of flour to the mixture and combine well. Set aside.

Pumpkin Bread

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine pumpkin puree, sugar, brown sugar, oil, sour cream, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, and egg and whisk until smooth.
  • Next add in half of the sifted flour into the wet ingredients, and use a spatula to carefully fold the mixture together. Add the remaining half of the flour to the bowl and mix until just combined and no flour streaks remain. As you would with any bread or muffin mixture, be careful to not over mix the batter, as this will make it dry and dense in texture.
  • Next, pour in 1/2 of the pumpkin batter into the greased loaf pan and smooth out into the corners with a spatula. Use a cookie scoop and add 2/3 of the cream cheese filling in dollops on top of the pumpkin and evenly spread with an offset spatula. Top with the remaining half of pumpkin batter, followed by the remaining cream cheese mixture. Use a knife or toothpick and lightly swirl the top of the batter, as desired.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes – 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean in the center of the pumpkin bread.
  • Place loaf pan onto a wire cooling rack and let cool for 10-15 minutes before removing from the pan to further cool.
  • Once cooled, slice your pumpkin cream cheese bread and serve.
