Dixie Crystals Sugar,  Taylor & Colledge Extracts and Millican Pecans

These are three of the sponsored  products I used  in  making the quick bread. You can get a chance on winning some of these if you enter the drawing!

Brown Sugar, Vanilla Paste and Pecans

The  apple pecan loaf is not quite as dense or heavy as some apple breads. Which can be overly moist. I wanted this bread to have a stupendous amount of pecans in them. So I used  both the meal and the  chopped ones on top.

The color is interesting because it almost looks like  I added molasses. Which is  a yummy idea, but I did not. That  has to be all coming from spice and the color using pecan meal adds.

If you don’t have any pecan meal,  you can make your own by pulsing pecans in a food processor until they  are fine crumbs. Just  don’t  overdo it  or you will  end up with pecan butter.
