Want a great Holiday recipe?

I found this recipe in a magazine like Woman's Day or Family Circle back in 1982. I have made this every year since then for Thanksgiving. It makes THE BEST pumpkin bread in the WORLD!!

Orangey Pumpkin Bread

2/3 cup shortening
2-2/3 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 lb. canned pumpkin
2/3-cup water
3-1/3 cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1-1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
½ tsp baking powder
1 whole orange
2/3 cup chopped nuts
2/3 cup chopped raisins

Cream shortening and sugar thoroughly; add eggs, pumpkin and water. Sift together next six ingredients and add to pumpkin mixture. Remove seeds from orange. Grind orange and peel in blender; add to pumpkin mixture. Stir in nuts and raisins. Pour into two well-greased loaf pans or seven mini loaf pans. Bake 350 F for 1 hour.
