3 cups sugar
1 cup butter, melted
1 can of pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix!)
1/3 cup cream cheese, softened
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons Allspice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter and dust two loaf pans with flour. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the sugar and melted butter. Beat with hand or standing mixer until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs and continue to cream the mixture. Add the pumpkin and cream cheese and beat until fluffy.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, Allspice, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Slowly add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and blend until well combined.
Pour into prepared loaf pans and bake 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a loaf comes out clean.
