Pumpkin and an Orange Bread

“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.”
