Pumpkins are in season and really cheap right now so I have a few of them on hand just waiting to be used. When I recently came across this recipe for a pumpkin caramel cheesecake bread on Culinary Concoctions by Peabody I knew exactly what I would be using one of those pumpkins for. How could I resist making this? With pumpkin, caramel and cheesecake all rolled up into one there was no way that I could. I pretty much just used the recipe as it was, though I cut back on some of the sugar and replaced half of the flour with whole wheat flour. One of the things that I really like about quick breads is that they are so easy to make. You pretty much just mix all of the ingredients and then bake it. This quick bread had the added step of mixing the cheesecake filling but it was still really easy to make. While the bread was baking my apartment was filled with an amazing pumpkin and caramel aroma and by the time that it was done I could barley wait for it to cool to try it. The pumpkin caramel cheesecake turtle bread was so good! The cheesecake layer helped keep the bread nice and moist and it went really well in the bread. The caramel and pumpkin flavour combo was simply amazing and of course it never hurts to add chocolate and pecans. I certainly am looking forward to having this for breakfasts this week!

I love combining the pumpkin with cream cheese. I want this on my table in November. Your Thanksgiving meal sounds heavenly.

Kevin, how do you not weigh 300 pounds from all the delicious food you make??
This looks divine!!

I'm hoping you have more. The chocolate and caramel sauces dripping from the side is making my mouth water. I should have this for breakfast rather than a bowl of cereal.

The Duo Dishes says
You combined several good things in one. Looks almost like a cake, but it's cool that the bread part isn't so sweet. That's a good way to offset the filling and topping.
Wow, this bread really sounds delicious Kevin.
This may top your sweet potato pie for things I need to make from your blog instantly. This looks amazing!
Holy cow, that looks amazing Kevin!

Madame Fromage says
This is some wild voodoo. After making your chocolate zucchini bread, which was fandamntastic, I am definitely on board to jump down this rabbit hole.
The Food Hunter says
This sounds amazing.
It's great. My husband will love it…
This looks amazing!!
Veggie Belly says
Wow! That looks amazingly yummy! Gorgeous color!
This is a great recipe but I changed a few things.
First for the cheesecake filling I creamed the sugar and cream cheese together, then added the egg. I also used butter and oil (more butter than oil) instead of the large quantity of oil.
Also I added spices to the filling and the loaf mixtures (cinnamon, all-spice, nutmeg)
Also, I reduced the amount of vanilla in the caramel sauce to 1/4 tsp and used semi-salted butter
As for the chocolate sauce I made it from scratch using dark cocoa powder, water and sugar
What size pan did you use? I put it in a 9×5" loaf pan and it reached the top which was a little worrisome, but I went ahead and baked it anyway. Luckily I put it on a foil lined sheet pan, because it flowed out and over the entire pan. Certainly no room for any caramel or chocolate sauce. What was baked tasted good, but it was was a mess.
Anonymous: The 9×5 inch loaf pan should have worked but it will rise up a bit but it should not have spilled over. The chocolate and caramel sauce are then drizzled on top after it had baked and been removed from the pan. Good call with placing another pan beneath the loaf pan. I try to remember to do that when baking anything. 🙂
