Ribbon Pumpkin Bread

Tis the season of pumpkin at our house. I love EVERYTHING pumpkin, it doesn't really matter what it is, if its pumpkin it becomes a favorite of mine. This Ribbon Pumpkin Bread is delicious~ BUT don't take my word for it...try it yourself!

Ribbon Pumpkin Bread
8 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese
1/4 c. sugar
1 T flour
2 egg whites

Batter:
1 c. pumpkin
1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
1 egg
2 egg whites
1 T oil
1 2/3 c. flour
1 1/4 c. sugar
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. ground cloves
1/3 c. chopped walnuts

1. For filling, combine the cream cheese, sugar, flour and egg whites in a bowl; mix well and set aside. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the pumpkin, applesauce, egg, egg whites and oil. Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves, add to the pumpkin mixture. Stir in walnuts.

2. Divide half of the batter between two loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Spread each with cream cheese filling; top with remaining batter.

3. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes (start checking at 40 minutes...mine was done at about 47 minutes) or when toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Refrigerate leftovers.
