Pumpkin Bread with a Cream Cheese Ribbon

Autumn Welcome to my patio! 

It was a nice day to enjoy some pumpkin bread and some vanilla cinnamon tea from Trader's Joe.  I'd better enjoy the time outside before the weather turns bad.

My masked pumpkin guy is atop my old scale.


The tea cosy is keeping my tea nice and warm for me. I made this one several  years ago from this vintage-like print. 


 My teacup is a Grace's Teaware piece.

Yield: 2 large loaves + 1 mini loaf

Pumpkin Bread with a Cream  Cheese Ribbon

Pumpkin Bread with a Cream Cheese Ribbon

This bread has a surprise hidden in the middle. You can use the cream cheese filling in other bread as well.


Pumpkin Bread
  • 3 and 1/3 cup flour
  • 4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 and 2/3 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
Cream Cheese Filling
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


For the bread
  1. Sift together flour, pumpkin pie spice, soda, powder and salt.  I like to use a whisk instead of sifting.  Set aside.
  2. Beat together  sugar and oil.  Add eggs, one at a time.  Beat in pumpkin.
  3. Add dry ingredients alternately with water, to the sugar mixture.  Stir in pecans, if using.
  4. Spoon half the batter into two greased 9 x 5" pans and 1 mini loaf.   Spoon a layer of filling over each.  Finish off with the rest of the batter.  You may have extra filling which you can use in brownies, or other quick breads. 
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for mini loaf, and about 45 minutes for the large loaves, or until tester comes out clean. 
Cream Cheese Filling
  1. Mix cream cheese and sugar until smooth and creamy.   Add egg and vanilla and beat well.  Store any extra filling in the fridge .  Keeps several weeks.

  1. Happy Monday Kitty! Your pumpkin loaf looks delicious and I’d love to join you for a slice and cup of tea from your adorable cozy! I have a similar recipe, love the cream cheese swirl. I love the expression on your pumpkin figure, grasping his head like those poor folks in La and the Gulf must be doing with Zeta possibly heading their way. Hope your weather isn’t too bad. We’re expecting more rain later this week from it too. ♥

  2. Oh my goodness, I have been wanting some pumpkin roll. This looks so good though. Love how you for the swirl going on in there too. Darling cup and saucer. EYES went straight to it you know! LOL! We've had some rain and weather is muggy and dreary looking. I really just want to stay in PJ's all day and drink coffee when it's like that! I hope that your week is wonderful to you dear Kitty. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. It's so nice to have the tea and pumpkin bread in the garden Kitty. I love your decorations and the bread sounds wonderful. I like that the bread has a cream cheese filling. Thanks for the recipe. Enjoy the week and have a happy Halloween.

  4. Your pumpkin bread sounds great Kitty, it's a cold rainy day here, it would be welcome with a warm cup of tea! Believe it or not I still haven't opened one can of pumpkin yet this season... Gotta get on that:@)

  7. Oh my word - what a beautiful ribbon of yumminess in your bread, Kitty. At first read I thought you bought it at Trader Joe's - and I was like what? Our Kitty buying baked goods?! That didn't seem possible, and at further reading I declared all fine in the world, haha.

    Your little Halloween tea party for one is so perfect. Your cosy is adorable and really makes the table!

    I adore vanilla tea. Is that a good one? I like vanilla because it always goes so nicely with food.
