Double Decker Pumpkin Bread

I love all things pumpkin and I love to make it all year long, not only in the fall.  This bread is a great way to get my pumpkin fix!  The bread is filled with spicy pumpkin flavor and the cream cheese is a nice creamy filling that complements the pumpkin.   It fills the house with delicious pumpkin smells and making these in a mini loaf pan makes this easy to share!  Even if you don't have mini loaf pans you can make this in a regular sized pan - just increase the cook time.

Double Decker Pumpkin Bread
Recipe from How Sweet It Is

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven 350 degrees.

Mix together pumpkin and sugars together until fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time, then mix in vanilla and oil.  Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.  Alternately add in dry ingredients and buttermilk, starting and ending with dry ingredients.  Pour into mini loaf pans halfway to the top.  Spread a third of the cream cheese mixture over the batter and cover with more pumpkin batter until it reaches about a 1/2 inch to the top.  

Bake 35 - 40 minutes.  Cool 15 minutes in pan before turning out onto rack.
