Skinny Pumpkin Cream Cheese Loaf is a family favorite in the autumn. . . today happens to be my birthday and I thought it’d be really fun to share our favorite loaf and celebrate with all of you!
Skinny Pumpkin Cream Cheese Loaf is so wonderful that my daughter Kate and I got together to bake some up for our birthday’s. . . there are only 6 days between us and we love this loaf SO, so, so much that it was our “cake” this year! I guess we didn’t light it up with candles but it could take them for sure!! It’s a loaf worthy of celebrating. 🙂
Skinny Pumpkin Cream Cheese Loaf is begging to become apart of your fall-inspired recipe favorites! In case you’re looking for more inspiration we also love Homemade Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Pancakes with Caramel Cinnamon Syrup, Pecan Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal, and Pumpkin Spice Bars!
Skinny Pumpkin Cream Cheese Loaf will be a delicious addition to your autumn baking!
Happy Birthday Monday!! (for me 🙂
