  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed firm
  • 3/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable / canola oil
  • 4 eggs at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 & 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 2-8 ounce blocks of cream crease at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 egg at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons milk at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Making the Pumpkin Bread

  1. Whisk pumpkin, brown sugar, 3/4 cup white granulated sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla, and 1 cup of chocolate chips until ingredients are fully combined.
  2. Add in all dry ingredients and blend in on a low speed until just combined.

Putting it All Together

  2. Add cheesecake filling.
  3. Top with remaining pumpkin batter.
  4. Add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to top of loaf.
  5. Bake for 75 minutes or until your cake tester comes out clean
  6. Once baked, allow to cool in pan for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from pan to cool completely.
  8. Slice, serve, and ENJOY!

Notes

  • Room Temperature Ingredients: Be sure to allow your dairy ingredients to reach room temperature. Room temperature ingredients not only combine more effortlessly (no over-mixing needed) but they also trap air so much better. This trap air will expand and produce a fluffy texture during your baking process.
  • Prepared Pan: There will always be the "next best way to prepare your pan" article. Simply put however, the most effective way i find in my kitchen is a light rub of shortening around the sides, parchment paper on the bottom of the pan (for majority of baking pans), & a very light dusting of flour (cocoa powder for chocolate baked goods) all throughout.
