The husband rating: No grade. Instead he said, "I'd rather have a real pumpkin bar." Nice.
My mom, however, thought it was very delicious and even asked for the recipe.
Layered Pumpkin Loaf
HEAT oven to 350ºF.
MIX pumpkin, 1 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, 3 egg whites, milk and oil in large bowl. Add flour, baking powder, spice and salt; stir just until moistened. Beat Neufchatel cheese, remaining granulated sugar and remaining egg white with whisk until well blended.
