Combine the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and cloves in a bowl and mix well.  Beat the sugar, butter and applesauce in a mixer bowl for 5 minutes or until creamy and light, scraping the bowl occasionally.  Add the eggs 2 at a time, beating well after each addition.  Add the pumpkin and orange juice.  Beat until smooth.  Stir in the flour mixture until blended.  Spoon the batter in to a lightly greased 5-by-9-inch loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 60 to 65 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool in the pan for several minutes.  Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.  Makes 12 servings.
