Directions:
1. Bring all the cold ingredients (cream cheese, butter, eggs, and pumpkin, in my case) to room temperature. This helps the loaf cook evenly and easily blend smooth.

2. Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a loaf pan.

3. Add all ingredients for the loaf to a blender, or to a bowl that you can use a hand mixer in. Mix until smooth, making sure you scrape the sides of the blender or bowl to get everything.

4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the loaf is set (not liquid-jiggly anymore when you shake the pan. It will puff up when it is baking, so watch for the center to "puff". It will fall a little once it cools.

5. Remove and allow to cool enough to touch. It will be easier to work with the cooler it is. When its hot it can be too soft to slice and transfer for frying.

6. Cut the loaf into quarters, and remove one quarter for frying up right now! Trust me... you'll be ready after smelling it bake. Cover and store the rest in the fridge once its completely cool.

7. Slice your piece of loaf into 4-5 slices, depending how thicc you like them.

8. Preheat a small skillet to medium heat, or maybe slightly lower, and put a little butter in for frying.

9. Fry for a few minutes on each side. This will depend on how hot your pan is. I think mine was about 2-3 minutes per side.

10. While its frying, I whip 4 tbsp of heavy whipping cream, start a cup of coffee, and rinse and slice some berries. I put some of the whipped cream in my coffee because its a little more than I need for my loaf. I then top the loaf with a tbsp of stevia maple syrup, but you can use any keto-friendly sweetener you like! Maybe even just sweeten your whipped cream with some powdered sweetener instead! Or mash your fruits up (especially if you have frozen!) and use them as a topping.

11. Plate it up, and enjoy your breakfast!
