    Jo Ann L's Note:

    Yes, a whole orange. No, you don't peel it. You just remove any seeds. No, you won't have yucky pieces of peel in your bread. No, it won't be bitter. It's moist and delicious. The division secretary at school gave me this recipe several years ago. I like it because it's good, and because nobody ever believes it has a whole orange in it.

      This bread was so moist. The orange gave the bread a great flavor. I took some to work and it was gone in no time. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.

      OMG - This is an awesome bread/cake! Slices beautifully - tender crumb that will hold up to toasting once fully cooled (I am eating it warm while typing!). Held the wonderful deep orange colour of the pumpkin well. The orange is a wonderfully subtle flavor - noticed more as a fresh but not at all bitter aftertaste/aroma. Used nutmeg instead of cloves (too lazy to grind them today LOL) & toasted my nuts - adding closer to a cup & 1/2. Used the raisins & added 6 ounces chopped dried Mission figs. Used Smart Balance "spread" instead of shortening with spectacular results. These loaves are big(rose to the top of my 9 x 5 loaf pans when baking) & not at all heavy; moist but not gummy or greasy. Nice enough to make & freeze for beach guests - I believe this would freeze and warm up well. Gonna make another batch & freeze with the rest of the 29 ounce can of pumpkin given to me by someone who decided she "hates pumpkin". Guess what? I'm giving her 1/2 of one of these loaves today! Thank you Jo Ann L for a real keeper! Buster's friend

      Made this over the weekend - fabulous! Of course, there are none left. I made one loaf of bread and used the rest of the batter to make muffins and added a streusel top! Yummy and easy for my college son to take back to school. Thanks for a great treat that will be made again and again.
