- Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour three 8x4-in. loaf pans. In a small bowl, beat filling ingredients until smooth.

- Pour half of the batter into prepared pans, dividing evenly. Spoon filling over batter. Cover filling completely with remaining batter.
- Bake 65-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in bread portion comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Wrap in foil; refrigerate until serving.
- Just before serving, if desired, in a small bowl, mix confectioners’ sugar, vanilla and enough milk to reach a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over bread; sprinkle with walnuts. Yield: 3 loaves (16 slices each).
Reviews for Pumpkin Swirl Bread
Sort By :
"The cloves were way too overpowering. It didn't taste like pumpkin and the cream cheese filling was too dense. It was like eating a plain block of cream cheese wrapped in tasteless nasty bread. I'm not new to baking and followed the directions exactly so I don't get the good reviews. I'm angry I wasted the ingredients and my time."
"Lots of ingredients and labor intensive for so little taste in the finished product. Not a keeper for me."
"I thought the pumpkin taste was delish!! Husband liked it a lot :)"
"So many other recipes out there that are much tastier. Lacked pumpkin taste. Cream cheese center was not very sweet or prominent. Reminds me of a bad attempt at improving fruitcake."
"I made this last night and it was great. I halved the recipe because I didn't need 3 loaves of bread and I made one loaf and the rest cupcakes. I did the 23 minutes with the cupcakes and 60 minutes with the bread as another suggested and it was perfect. I also left out the dates, raisins, and nuts inside just to see if it would be like a pumpkin roll. Not quite the same but very good."
