Try this Pumpkin Bread! So many people in my office loves it!
2 cups sugar
1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup egg substitute (I used egg whites)
3-1/3 cups all-purpose flour (I used 1/2 wheat flour 1/2 white)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg or allspice
1 cup chopped nuts or raisins, optional (I didn't have any to add)
In a bowl, combine the sugar, pumpkin, applesauce and egg substitute; mix well. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, salt and nutmeg; gradually add to pumpkin mixture and mix well. Stir in nuts or raisins if desired. Pour into two 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 loaves (14 slices per loaf).
The recipe says it makes 14 slices a loaf, I made it 10 slices a loaf because I like bigger pieces. If you make it per 14 slices a loaf, calories would be 114. Not to shabby!
