Oh my gosh! This is the absolute best bread!! The only thing I did was to omit the orange peel and used 1/4tsp. van. extract instead and left out cloves and increased cinnamon to 1 tsp. It came out delish, I'm tossing out all my other recipes I have for pumpkin bread! As another veiwer stated be careful not to put too much in 1st layer or cheese ends up to close to the top. I'm going to make 2 more loaves right now for Thanksgiving because we can't stop eating the ones I just made!! Thanks Tina!!!

I must have done something wrong. This was nearly tasteless. We salvaged it by topping it with spiced applesauce.

I really liked the aroma and taste but had one problem. The instruction for the pumpkin mixture was to "pour" it into pan, on top of cheese mixture. My batter was too thick to pour. I had to spoon it on and that made it hard to spread. Don't know what I did wrong.

This bread had the perfect amount of spice (I love spice!!) and the cream cheese added a nice touch. Although I did add too much bottom layer before adding the cream cheese. So be careful! Only need to add a very small bottom layer. Thank you!

By far one of the best breads ever. Not only is it moist and delicious but the presentation is very nice. We loved it.........I make a lot of quick breads but this will go to the top of my recipe file.

The best bread recipe ever! The last time I made this I made about six loaves and gave them to friends. That same night they were all begging me to make them another loaf, it didn't even last a day! My mom practically eats the whole thing in one sitting! I will continue to make this bred for a long time to come. Thank you for this recipe, it makes me, a new cook, look like an master chef!

I made 2 batches of this in one day. Took two to church and everyone loved it. It is easy to make and a little different than traditional pumpkin bread. This is a keeper. Will make again and again.

Tina, what a fabulous recipe! This bread was so moist and flavorful and the consistency was just perfect. I left out the ground clove because I don't care for their flavor, and the bread came out delicious. It was also so pretty when cut. Thanks for this keeper!
