Mr. Food: Five Star Pumpkin Bread

What You’ll Need
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 (15-ounce) can 100% pure pumpkin (not pie filling)
4 eggs
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
What to Do
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat two 9- x 5-inch loaf pans with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, beat sugar, cream cheese, and butter until well blended. Add pumpkin and eggs and beat until well mixed.

Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves. Beat until well blended. Pour batter evenly into loaf pans.

Bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes, then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely.
