Orange Pumpkin Loaf

My mother-in-law gave this to me from All Recipes.  It was submitted to their website by Carol.

1 large orange

1/3 cup butter, softened

1 1/3 cups white sugar

2 eggs

1 cup canned pumpkin

1/3 cup orange juice (or water)

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 cup chopped raisins

1. Heat oven to 350. Grease a 9×5″ bread pan.

2. Cut orange into wedges & remove seeds. Place orange, peel & all, in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl, cream butter & sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the pumpkin, water & the ground orange. Mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, & cloves. Stir into batter just until moistened. Stir in nuts & raisins. Spoon into the prepared loaf pan.

4. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes, then remove from pan. Cool on a wire rack.
