I would post a picture but for some reason no matter how much I adjust it, it keeps telling me it's the wrong size. Don't get me wrong, the pumpkin bread itself turned out really good. Very moist and just the right spice. I had really high hopes for the cream cheese filling since the "batter" for it tasted so good before I actually put it in the bread to bake. However, I'm surprised no one mentioned in their reviews that the "cream cheese filling" in the middle is not a frosting like you would expect. It's more like a cream cheese and orange flavored batter that is baked into the bread. If you are expecting a cream cheese frosting in the middle then you will be disappointed like I was. I do agree that the orange zest in the filling really complimented the pumpkin flavor of the bread so I would highly recommend not omitting it like other reviewers have done. I think if it weren't for the orange zest this recipe wouldn't really stand out from other pumpkin bread recipes out there. Also a word to the wise: I did not find that it made enough batter to make two loafs like the recipe calls for. I went ahead and just put all of it in one 8x4 loaf pan. It filled it to the top. It didn't overflow and turned out fine. I wound up with a total baking time of an hour and 20 minutes because it was a larger loaf but of course bake times will vary depending on your oven. Next time I will follow the bread recipe but will use a different filling recipe and just add orange zest to it
