"I made adjustments on this recipe when I'd first prepared it: i used 1/4 cup butter or margarine & I used 1 tsp. salt with sifted dry ingredients! I also used 1/8 cup all-purpose flourwith raisins and added 1/2 cup chopped pecans OR walnuts and 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips. I'd also added 1 Tbsp. ground Navel orange to the creamed mixture for added flavor and I'd used two 8-1/2x4-1/2x2-1/2" greased and floured loaf pans or three 7-1/2x3-1/2" greased and floured loaf pans. I baked 45 to 55 minutes or until a cake tester inserted near center comes out clean. I cooled in pans 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Thank you, Pamela Kelley, for sharing your recipe! delowenstein"
