This pumpkin bread is scrumptious with a special touch - a succulent vanilla glaze and crystallized ginger.
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin
1 2/3 cups sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup low fat milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs + 4 egg whites
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
vanilla glaze (see recipe below)
3 tablespoons crystallized ginger, chopped

Vanilla glaze:

2/3 cup powdered sugar
3 teaspoons warm water
1/4 teaspoons vanilla
