Pumpkin Cheese Bread with Streusel Topping

Nor M.


I discovered the basic recipe for this bread years ago. I made it my own by switching up ingredients and adding a pecan steusel topping to it. It is so delicious. It is like having cheese cake and a sweet bread all in one.We all love this in my family. I bake it every Fall. Great for gatherings too. I hope you all love it as much as I do. It is so delicious.The maple cheese filling is so tasty. You won't find this in a bakery.
