I'm not a big fan of pumpkin, so I haven't tried this myself, but it sounds very good.


1 cup pumpkin
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 2/3 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Cream cheese filling ingredients:
1 pkg cream cheese -- (8 oz.) softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 TB flour
1 egg
2 tsp grated orange peel

Combine pumpkin, oil & eggs; beat well. Add sugar, salt, cloves, cinnamon, flour, baking
soda, and nuts, mixing to blend. Pour 1/4 of the batter in 2 greased 7 1/2 x 3 1/2" bread
pans (pour 1/4 of the batter in each pan) - {OR one 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan - pour in half the batter}.

Beat cream cheese, sugar and flour together. Add egg and mix to blend. Stir in orange
peel. Carefully spread cream cheese filling mixture over batter in the pans. Cover the
cream cheese filling with the remaining batter.
Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until bread tests done. Cool 10 minutes in pans before turning out on a rack to cool.
Store in the refrigerator.
