    Marz's Note:

    This was published in Southern Living's Feb 2008 edition. It is a re-make of the original recipe contributed by Willie Monroe from Homewood, Alabama. This version cuts down some of the fat intake and still remains as delish as the original recipe. Gotta try it! Make sure you bake this in TWO 8X4 loaf pans. If you try and put it into one 10x4 loaf pan it will be way too much batter and will not cook through properly!

    6. 6
      Bake at 350°F for one hour or until a long wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and sides of bread pull away from pan, shielding with aluminum foil during last 15 minutes to prevent excessive browning, if necessary. Cool bread in pans on wire racks 10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks. Let cool 30 minutes.

      I made a single loaf using 95% fat free cream cheese, Splenda and egg white only to lighten it as much as possible. The cream cheese really isn't noticeable at all (that was a bit of a disappointment) and it didn't rise very much. It pretty much remained at the same level as the batter was when placed in the pan but with a rounded top. Perhaps I over mixed it? The flavor is very good and was great with a cup of tea. Made for Photo Tag.
