1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until blended.
Lightly spoon the flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour and the next 8 ingredients (flour through baking soda) in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine egg, egg yolk, and sugar in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk until well blended. Add pumpkin and oil; stir well with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.

Spoon 1/2 the batter into a 9 x 5-inch buttered loaf pan. Spoon cream cheese mixture over batter, spoon remaining batter on top; swirl batters together using the tip of a knife.
