1 cup sugar
14 cup margarine
14 cup applesauce
2 eggs
1 cup solid pack pumpkin
2 cups all-purpose flour
12 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
14 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
12 cup raisins
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
14 cup orange juice
12 cup walnuts (optional)


Lightly grease a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan or coat with vegetable spray. Beat sugar, margarine and applesauce until creamy and light (about 5 minutes). Add eggs one at a time and continue to beat. Add pumpkin and mix until smooth. Combine flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Stir into pumpkin mixture and mix until smooth. Add raisins, orange rind, orange juice and nuts. Stir well and pour into loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 60-65 minutes. Test for doneness by inserting wooden pick into loaf; if it comes out clean the bread is done. YIELD: 12 slices.
