Layered Pumpkin Bread

Introduction

This is a favorite recipe I found in a magazine but I "play" with the ingredients. You can lighten the recipe with light cream cheese and yogurt, use splenda, part whole wheat flour, and use part apple sauce for the oil - but here is the recipe in its original form. Very pretty and satisfying too! Note that it is best made the night before you want to eat it!
Pumpkins are a tasty source of vitamins and minerals, particularly beta-carotene, vitamin C, and potassium. It also helps prevent arterosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, which can lead to strokes and/or heart attacks.
A study by the USDA indicated that diets high in pumpkin as a fiber source tended to curb the appetite, yet provided more food for the same calorie count. The subjects in this study also absorbed less fat and calories from their food.

Spoon 1/2 cups of the pumpkin batter into each of the prepared pans. Divide the cream cheese mixture between the pans and spread evenly. Spoon the remaining pumpkin bater onto the cream cheese mixture and spread evenly (don't worry if cream cheese shows)
