  1. For filling, combine the cream cheese, sugar, flour and egg whites in a bowl; set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat the pumpkin, applesauce, egg, egg whites and oil. Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves; add to pumpkin mixture. Stir in walnuts.
  2. Divide half of the batter between two 8-in. x 4-in. x 2-in. loaf pans coated with nonstick cooking spray. Spread each with filling; top with remaining batter. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Refrigerate leftovers.

I have a recipe very similar to this (it's the high calorie recipe) That recipe says to use the 7 1/2 by 3 inch pans. This makes the loaves more rounded.

Worth 5 stars as far as taste goes, but I'm giving this a 4 as it definitely doesn't make enough for 2 loaves. I fully intended on using applesauce as I love to cook quick breads that way, but ...

Hoped this would be great, but the Fam was disappointed.
