Orange Dreamsickle Bread

I came across this recipe recently from the food blogger, Chef in Training. It looked too good not to try. I am a citrus fan, especially orange, so how could I pass this up? Morning coffee, brunch, tea party, late night snack…need I say more? Enjoy.


1 1/3 cups vegetable oil

3 eggs

1¼ cup milk

2¼ cups sugar

¼ cup orange juice

3 tsp. orange extract

3 cups flour

1½ tsp. salt

1½ tsp. baking powder

Orange Food Coloring (optional)

Cream Cheese Filling

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 TBSP. flour

Cream Cheese Frosting

¼ cup butter, softened

2 cups powdered sugar

1 tsp. Orange extract

½ cup heavy whipping cream


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grease and flour 3 (8x4)” loaf pans (I used 2 9x5” pans and baked longer)

In a large mixing bowl, beat oil, eggs, milk, sugar, orange juice and orange extract until smooth. Add in flour, salt and baking powder and mix until well incorporated. Stir in orange food coloring a drop at a time until desired orange color is reached – optional.

In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs and flour. Fill loaf pans each with 1/6th of the batter (or more if using two pans like I did). Spoon 1/3 of the cream cheese filling onto the top of each loaf pan and swirl with a knife to cut in mixture. Pour remaining batter over the tops of each pan.

Bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.


Cream butter in a medium bowl. Add in powdered sugar, orange extract and heavy whipping cream. Beat until smooth. Frost the tops of each loaf.
