Cream Cheese Stuffed Pumpkin Banana Bread is the perfect combo of pumpkin, banana, cream cheese, and cinnamon.

Have a piece with your coffee in the morning or serve it as an easy and delicious dessert.

Your kids will love a slice packed in their lunch boxes.

You can’t go wrong.

The pumpkin is not overwhelming so even non-pumpkin lovers will adore this bread.

And, this bread is great to give to friends, neighbors, and teachers during the holiday season.

My recipe makes two loaves - one to keep and one to share.


Pour half the batter in bottom of the two greased loaf pans.

Mix softened cream cheese, eggs, and powdered sugar together for filling.

Then add cream cheese filling on top of the batter.

Use a knife to swirl the filling into the batter. Then pour remaining batter on top.

Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top of the loaves

Bake for approximately 40 minutes.

Ingredients for Pumpkin Banana Mix
  • 1/2 c (113 grams) butter, softened
  • 1/2 c (99 grams) sugar
  • 1/2 c (106 grams) brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups (300 grams) flour
  • 1 t (6 grams) baking soda
  • 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 15 ounce can solid pumpkin
  • 1 c (113 grams) toasted walnuts (or pecans)
  • 1 T (14 grams) vanilla
  • 1 T Cinnamon
  • 1 T pumpkin pie spice
  • homemade cinnamon sugar
Ingredients for Filling
  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease two loaf pans.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream sugars and butter together until light and fluffy.
Add in the eggs and mix again.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.
Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture and mix just until incorporated.
Add in mashed bananas and solid pumpkin. Mix again.
Next add the toasted walnuts and vanilla. Mix again.
Pour half the mixture into the two greased loaf pans and spread evenly.
Directions for Filling and Baking.
Mix together softened cream cheese, one egg, and 1/4 cup sugar.
Spread this mixture in the center of each loaf pan after pouring in batter.
Swirl the cream cheese into the batter with a knife.
Pour the remaining batter over the cream cheese mixture and spread evenly throughout pan.
Sprinkle the loafs with cinnamon sugar.
Bake in the oven for approximately 40-43 minutes, but check often to make sure the cake is not over done.
You want the center to be slightly underdone when you remove them from the oven.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely in the loaf pans. This will ensure it finishes baking in the middle without drying out the edges.
Once cooled, flip the loaves out onto cooling rack.
  • Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
