Cream Cheese Nibble Bread | Quick Bread Mix Recipe

This loaf pan cream cheese nibble bread will soon become your family favorite at any meal!


I always turn to this easy to make loaf pan bread for holidays.  It's shown up on our brunch or dinner table at Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's meals.  I've made it out of Cranberry Bread Mix, Nut Bread Mix, Date Nut Bread mix, and probably a few others I can't remember.  I've had this recipe since at least the 1970s.

Of course, this is the perfect bread mix to throw together for a quick get-together with a friend or family over coffee or tea.  Bring it into the office for the break room!  Anything brought into a break room immediately disappears!  Imagine nibbling at the loaf, with it's delicious filling of cream cheese!

When I make it, I think fondly of a co-worker from years ago.  She was a law student intern at the time.  I still remember her name. 

Do you often wonder when making a recipe someone gave you, where in life former friends and co-workers are?  So many recipes shared over the years.
