Instructions

Preheat oven to 350° with rack in bottom third. Coat a 9×5×3-inch cast-iron loaf pan with nonstick spray.

For the streusel, combine flour, pecans, brown sugar, and cinnamon; cut in butter until crumbly.

For the filling, beat together cream cheese, sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla in a bowl with a mixer until smooth.

For the bread, whisk together pumpkin purée, sugar, oil, and egg in a bowl until smooth.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves in a separate bowl; whisk into pumpkin mixture just until combined.

Spread half the batter in the bottom of prepared pan. Gently spread cream cheese mixture over pumpkin batter. Pour remaining batter over filling, carefully spreading to cover. Top batter with streusel.

Bake bread until top is cracked and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 60–65 minutes. Transfer bread to a rack, cool in pan 15 minutes, then turn out to cool completely
