Recipe: Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread in a Jar

pumpkin cream cheese bread

Fall is just right around the corner and if you’re anything like me, you love ANYTHING pumpkin. Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin chai tea, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin cheesecake (super simple 5 min recipe I love), pumpkin pretzels (super fun for the kids) and one of my favorites pumpkin cream cheese bread. On top of loving pumpkin, eating anything out of a mason jar is just fun right? This is a fun recipe to make and it’s pretty much fool proof! Enjoy making this and get the kiddos involved, they’ll love it!


8 4oz mason jars or 4 8oz mason jars
1 15oz can of pumpkin puree
1 cup of oil
cup of water
3 cups of sugar
4 eggs
3 ½ cups of flour
2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
½ teaspoon of ground cloves
¼ teaspoon of ginger

Cream cheese mixture:

4 oz of cream cheese
1 egg
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 350.  Spray mason jars with cooking spray.

In large bowl mix together can of pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, water and sugar until well blended.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger.

Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until well blended.
