Sweet Alabama Pecan Bread

Sweet Alabama Pecan Bread  is  not  a bread per se, but more of a  coffee cake that tastes very much like pecan pie.

Sweet Alabama Pecan Bread is my recipe of the day. This recipe  is like  a cross  between a  tea loaf or bread and a kuchen.  It is  very  moist and not  overly sweet. The top  is  crunchy  from  the  sugar and  it  has a crunch from  the pecans as well.

I used a little bit  of Steen’s cane syrup in  it but  I know  you can’t get that everywhere. If you need to sub,  you can try using a dark brown sugar instead of light brown sugar. Or you  can switch  to a light molasses or sorghum. Honey and  maple  syrup are  also possibilities. But remember those will take the flavor to a different zip code.

This  is  perfect for breakfast or brunch. And  would also be  nice in the afternoons with a cup of hot tea or coffee. And even though  it has no frosting  or glaze as such, it would be wonderful for dessert.

The flavor in  this  is  very nearly like pecan pie, even though pie can be a bit too sweet. I’m thinking this would be  fab on  a holiday dessert table. Or something you can bake ahead for Christmas morning. Nibble on  it  while the kids rip open Santa’s haul.
