Tips for Making this Pumpkin Sweet Bread
Since I love making sweet bread like this pumpkin cream cheese bread, I have learned a few tricks to making them turn out perfect every time.
- Use a spoon to hand mix the wet and dry ingredients until they are just barely combined for a lighter and fluffier option. Over mixing can make them tough and chewy.
- Bake in a 9"x13" casserole dish for easier portion control when slicing
- When freezing for future use, cut into individual portion sizes and wrap so it is easy to grab only what you need out of the freezer
