Peanut Butter Pumpkin Bread

In honor of fall, I decided to bake something with pumpkin in it today.  I ran across this recipe using peanut butter and pumpkin (two of my favorites!) but was a little skeptical of using them both together.  The result was excellent!  Both flavors are subtle and neither outdoes the other.  Yum!

1 c sugar
1 c brown sugar
1 15 oz can solid packed pumpkin
1 c applesauce
3/4 c water
2/3 c peanut butter
4 eggs
3 1/2 c flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

What to do with it all:
Preheat oven to 350º. Combine the sugar through the eggs on the ingredient list.  Beat until well blended.  In a separate bowl, combine flour-spices.  Add slowly to the other bowl, mixing well.  Pour into TWO greased loaf pans at bake for 60-70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.
