Pumpkin Bread

Cream Cheese Swirl

  • 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup caramel sauce1
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cup all-purpose flour


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray three 5x9-inch bread pans with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Beat the eggs in a large bowl with a hand mixer or in a stand mixer on high until foamy, about 30 to 45 seconds.
  • Add the oil, water, orange juice, and pumpkin puree. Beat until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, sugars, spices, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet in three different batches, scraping down the sides of the bowl in between each addition. Mix until well combined.
  • For the filling, cream together cream cheese, egg, caramel, vanilla, and flour until smooth.
  • Scoop 1 cup of pumpkin batter into the bottom of each pan and spread evenly. Then scoop ¼ cup of cream cheese mixture on top of each one and gently swirl (if you swirl too much there won’t be a defined swirl after it bakes so spread gently). Add another cup of batter onto each pan, followed by and ¼ cup of cream cheese. Top each pan with ½ cup of batter.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Rotate the loaves and continue baking for another 25 to 30 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow the loaves to cool for 1 hour in the pans before slicing.


  1. Use a storebought caramel sauce or your favorite homemade recipe.
  2. Nutritional information is an estimated per loaf of bread. This recipe makes three loaves.
  3. I like to cut about 1-inch slices and then cut each slice in half to serve more. The cream cheese swirl isn’t too sweet, it’s a nice balance with the sweet bread but if you want a sweeter swirl you can add ½ cup powdered sugar.
