You one hundred percent need to take the plunge and make this sweet fluffy loaf. No regrets because it tastes so incredible. Share some with your friends and family and they will be singing the praises.

This recipe is fairly simple and straightforward. You most likely have all of the ingredients on hand in your kitchen. For the oil, you can use any neutral flavored oil, like avocado oil, sunflower oil, melted and cooled coconut oil, etc.

The pumpkin bread is so moist and fluffy. One of the highlights of fall is baking with that fluffy pumpkin puree. The texture is pure heaven. Also in fall we pull out the pumpkin pie spice. I did not have any so I added cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.

Next lets add a simple layer of cream cheese, sugar, flour and egg to bind. It’s like swirling a cheesecake right in the middle of this delicious cake. Beyond scrumptious.

My favorite time to consume this treat is in the morning with my coffee. It’s like a Starbucks quality loaf piece. My morning ritual is one million percent more intense with this bread in my mouth.
