    Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Run knife around edges to loosen loaf. Remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

    In small bowl, beat Frosting ingredients with spoon until smooth. Frost tops of loaves. When ready to serve, cut into slices. Cover and refrigerate any remaining bread.

Expert Tips

  • Short on time? Use 1 cup Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting instead of the scratch-made frosting. Spread 1/2 cup frosting on top of each loaf.
  • To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper, and place on microwavable plate; microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or just until softened.
