While these were very nice in terms of crumb and texture, the cream cheese mixture was way too thin to manage. Next time, I'll just use the yolk as it was far too runny to place in the batter. I thought they had enough flavor when a bit of pumpkin pie spice was added - not sure it needed the topping, it made them almost too sweet. I almost cut it out and added some golden raisins. I did cut back on the brown sugar by half and replaced it with molasses, which made the cakes more flavorful. Next time I will use this as a 9 x 9 cake and frost it with a cream cheese frosting.
