  • 3 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar (packed)
  • 2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 Cup Oil
  • 1 15 oz. Canned Pumpkin
  • 2/3 Cup Water


  • 8 oz. Cream Cheese (softened)
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg Yolk


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

  2. Prepare 2 loaf pans by greasing the bottom with butter, shortening, or nonstick cooking spray and flour.

  3. In a large bowl, combine all the dry bread ingredients: flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry: oil, pumpkin, and water.

  5. Mix well.

  6. Divide the mixture evenly among the two prepared loaf pans and set aside.

  7. In a separate bowl, combine all the ingredients for the filling: cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract, and egg yolk. Mix until smooth.

  8. Equally, spoon dollops of the cream cheese mixture over the pumpkin batter. Use a skewer or toothpick to swirl the cream cheese mixture over the top of the pumpkin batter. Be careful not to stir it into the batter.

  9. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  10. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pans, then remove from the pans to cool completely.

  11. Enjoy!
