I remember every fall when my grandmother would make the most amazing bread. Pumpkin was one of her favorites and mine too. This recipe makes 3 loaves of pumpkin bread which allows you to share with your friends and family or just keep all to yourself!

Doesn't the title of this pumpkin bread recipe alone make you hungry?! The flavors of pumpkin and maple are an amazing blend in this moist bread. Then, when you take a bite, add in the creamy texture of the cream cheese filling. Yum! We also loved the mixture of nuts and raisins. A great dessert for fall (but it's so good you may make this year around).
pumpkin puree or one 15 oz can solid-packed pumpkin
pumpkin pie spice
currants or raisins
How To Make
Beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and milk in a small bowl until creamy.
Add the maple extract or syrup and blend. Set aside for now.
In a large bowl, beat the sugar, pumpkin, oil, water, and eggs.
In another large bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices.
Now gradually add the dry ingredients to your wet.
Stir in the nuts and raisins.
Pour half of the batter into three flour-greased 8" x 4" loaf pans.
Spoon the filling over the batter.
Use a spatula to spread it out carefully.
Add the remaining batter making sure to completely cover the filling.
Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool 10 minutes in the pans.
Remove the bread from the pans to a wire rack to cool completely. Store your bread in the refrigerator wrapped in plastic wrap.
