The Great Pumpkin

This yummy bread comes from Jean Pare's Company's Coming series. It's in the Muffins and More book. Company's Coming is a Canadian Cookbook series. I have 4 or 5 of the books and each recipe I try always turns out well.

4 oz softened cream cheese
1/4 cup softened butter or margarine
1 1/4 cups suagar
2 eggs
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I didn't add these)

Heat oven to 350*. Combine cream cheese, butter & sugar in mixing bowl. Cream together well. Beat in eggs one at a time until blended. Mix in pumpkin.
In another bowl combine the remaining ingredients. Stir until thoroughly mixed. Pour all at once over batter. Stir until just moistened. Spoon into a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan. Bake for 60-70 minutes (until an inserted toothpick comes out clean). Cool 10 minutes in pan. Remove to rack to finish cooling.

Gosh, this looks so good. I happen to have all the ingredients on hand most of the time. Will definitely have to do this soon.

How's the new babe? And how're you?
