Use a good quality dulce de leche rather than caramel-flavored topping for the best performance and flavor.
The cream cheese add extra moistness to this flavorful quick bread. Store filled breads, tightly wrapped, in refrigerator up to 4 days before serving.
Orange Cream-Filled Loaf
Omit dulce de leche. Prepare and cool Bread as directed. Prepare Cream Filling as directed, substituting orange juice for the milk and blending 1/4 cup orange marmalade (or 1 Tbsp. marmalade for trial recipe) with the cream cheese before adding sugar and orange juice. Continue as directed.
