Looks delicious and I'm all about anything pumpkin (except in my latte- sorry starbucks).
We just moved to Austin from Michigan and I'm sorely missing apple orchard trips with cider & donuts.
Smelling the house up with pumpkin bread might alleviate that.
That sauce sounds delicious!
Stacy this bread sounds so inviting. And the creamy cheesecake sauce sounds like the perfect topping.
Love a good pumpkin bread. It sounds delicious.

I'm going to be making pumpkin bread today, so I'm looking forward to the wonderful smells coming from my kitchen. It's perfect baking day here in Chicago, cold and gloomy!
Looks and sounds yummy!
@The Mayor - welcome to AUSTIN! Hope you and your family will fall in love with this great city. Stop by on Sunday for my Cranberry demo and tasting at Faraday's Kitchen Store in Lakeway!
Yesterday I tried this one and it came out well for me. It was delicious too. Thanks for posting it.
Cheesecake sauce??? Seriously? I don't even remember what the rest of the post was about. I feel like Homer Simpson with beer. MMMMM cheesecake sauce. drool.
