Directions for Cream Cheese Filling
- Mix together softened cream cheese, one egg, and 1/4 cup sugar.
- Spread this mixture in the center of each loaf pan after pouring in batter.
- Swirl the cream cheese into the batter with a knife.
- Pour the remaining batter over the cream cheese mixture and spread evenly throughout pan.
- Sprinkle the loafs with cinnamon sugar.
- Bake in the oven for approximately 40-43 minutes, but check often to make sure the cake is not over done.
- You want the center to be slightly underdone when you remove them from the oven.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool completely in the loaf pans. This will ensure it finishes baking in the middle without drying out the edges.
- Once cooled, flip the loaves out onto cooling rack.
- Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
