Pumpkin Mini Loaves with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Servings 8 small loaves



  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a mini loaf pan with 8 cavities {my pan is wilton brand--approximately 4 x 2 1/2 x 1 1/2} and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Scrape sides and stir in pumpkin. Mixture won't be smooth and look kind of curdled. This is totally normal. Slowly stir in remaining ingredients until just combined. Scrape sides and mix again briefly. Divide evenly between pans and bake 20-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean after being inserted. Cool 10 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Cool completely.
  3. For the frosting, whip cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and cinnamon together until smooth and creamy. Scrape sides and whip again. Spread a good layer over each loaf, slice and serve.
