Week 9 Christmas Treats: Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread

I will admit of not being a fan of the Pumpkin Spice Latte but I do love things with Pumpkin Pie flavors. Pumpkin bread is one of my favorites. Add a layer of sweet cream cheese filling and some mini chocolate chips and this is a delicious breakfast bread. This recipe makes two large loaves so you can keep one and share one!


This is one bread that my family loves for breakfast. We slice the loaves into about 8 slices and freeze them in baggies so that they can be popped into the microwave on a busy morning to warm. Delicious!
