A friend gave me a recipe years ago for "Orange Date Bread" and I wanted to make it this morning but I didn't have dates,so I substituted golden raisins for the dates,I used two kinds of sugar, and it came out delicious!

If you like citrus flavored things, this is very tasty and the combination of pecans and golden raisins with the orange glaze are fresh.
