Pumpkin Bread with Maple Cream Cheese Filling - - Yum

Dana Ramsey Recipe

By Dana Ramsey DRamsey

I remember every Fall when my grandmother would make the most amazing breads. Pumpkin was one of her favorites and mine also. This recipe is made with fresh pumpkin puree and not the can. This recipe makes 3 loafs of pumpkin bread which allows you to share with your friends and family or just keep all to yourself!
