A Taste of Fall | Pumpkin Swirl Bread


What says fall more than pumpkin? In my opinion, nothing. I mixed up a loaf of Pumpkin Swirl Bread yesterday as part of my weekly baking. It will be eaten at breakfast, a snack, and maybe, even dessert.

See that dreamy, creamy ribbon of cream cheese? It's delightful. The bread is moist and heavy. Just the way I like it. I'm not a coffee drinker, but for those of you who are, I would venture to say that this would be a welcome little treat with a steaming cup of java. Or hot tea. I like it with a glass of milk.

Apple pie is another fall favorite and it was a part of my weekly baking yesterday too. Typically, one thinks of apple pie as dessert but a particular girl in our house chose to have it as breakfast this morning. I guess that's ok. Starbucks and other places make a fortune on selling breakfast pastries so why isn't it ok to do that at home too?

oh I'm making this tonight - I was going to make my normal pumpkin bread, but that cream cheese add in is calling my name!!

I'm also chuckling over the apple pie - one of my boys is a voracious eater and he asked for apple pie last week - we said no but afterwards I thought well isn't that silly - we'll give them muffins, danish, donuts but not apple pie? I vowed to say yes next time (but minus the ice cream) so am glad to see I'm not the only mom doing that!

I had to come back and comment - I made this bread and it is delicious! Mine isn't as pretty (I swirled too much or didn't layer it well) but it tastes divine! Thanks SO much for sharing!

This looks so yummy. And since it has cream cheese and pumpkin, I'm convinced that it's a fairly healthy breakfast for the kids!
