Every now and then, something hits me. An idea I just can’t escape. I try to think zucchini and spinach, but my mind keeps begging for cookies and breads. Our family loves Oreo cookies. It’s the girls’ most requested ice cream. So, I gave it a shot, I mixed a few of our favorite things with one of my favorite recipes and voila, magic was made. Cookies and Cream Bread!

The girls think that they don’t like cream cheese, but they have had a countless number of appetizers and desserts made with cream cheese that they just can’t get enough of, and this Cookies and Cream Bread is no exception.

Adapted from my sweet bread recipe, Cookies and Cream bread takes just 10 minutes hands on time and bakes to perfection. I like to serve it warm for breakfast or dessert, but it’s delicious at room temperature, too!

If we’re hosting guests for the weekend, I’ll whip up a few loaves of various breads because it keeps well when wrapped. Caramel Cheesecake is another favorite!

This quick bread has certainly been a hit in our house and it disappeared in record time! I was quickly being asked to make some more! It’s so perfectly sweet and moist, it’s hard to resist! I can’t wait for you guys to make this, you are going to love it!

Tips to Make Bread

  • Be sure to grease your loaf pan before adding the dough.
  • The bread will take about 45 minutes to bake, start checking it about 5 minutes before time as some ovens can run hotter.
  • Check when the bread is done by inserting a toothpick into the center of the loaf. If it comes out clean, with the exception of a little cream cheese, then it’s ready.
  • The batter should not exceed 1″ from the top of the loaf pan to compensate for rise.
  • To get 1/2 egg for filling, whisk an egg in a small bowl and divide.

To Store

Once you have baked the bread, let it cool and then store it in an airtight container. It will last for a couple of days and room temperature and about a week in the fridge. You can also freeze the bread, just wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or foil and then thaw it at room temperature.
