This was absolutely wonderful. I did use regular cream cheese because I can never find neufchatel. I used an immersion blender to blend the cream cheese mixture, the whisk just didn't do it. I love the blend of flavors of this loaf. Thanks for this recipe Chef.Jules. Made for Fall Pac'09

I got this same recipe from Kraft Food & Family. It's great! I added one extra teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice to the bread and a teaspoon of vanilla to the cream cheese mixture. It also took my oven an hour and a half to bake it all the way through, but the rave reviews at the brunch I served it at were well worth the wait!

I must have done something wrong even though I followed the recipe exactly. The outer layer...the bread part tasted good but the center wasn't creamy at all. It was clumpy and broke into pieces all over the place. I will admit I am a somewhat inexperienced baker so could have been something I did wrong. Doubt I will be making this again. Thanks for submitting it, was worth a try for a pumpkin roll type dessert. Prissy
