Apple Pecan Bread

This is a family favorite. Lots of ingredients but still simple to make---most time consuming is the apple peeling and chopping. Make sure to add the cinnamon sugar as soon as the bread is turned out from the pan and is still hot---the sugar melts into the bread and forms a delicious crust. We like a nice thick slice for breakfast slathered with honey butter.

From the Pantry

1 cup canola oil

3 eggs

1 cup white sugar

1 cup light brown sugar

2 Tbsp vanilla

3 cups all purpose flour

1 Tbsp cinnamon

2 tsp ground nutmeg

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

4 cups peeled, chopped apples

1 cup chopped pecans

3 Tbsp cinnamon sugar

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spray 2 regular sized loaf pans. Combine oil, eggs, sugars and vanilla. Sift together flour, spices, soda and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet mix gradually. Add apples and nuts and mix- batter will be very thick!

Pour batter into prepared loaf pans and smooth tops. Bake in 300 degree oven for 90 minutes. As soon as pans come out of oven, turn bread on to wire racks and sprinkle tops liberally with cinnamon sugar. Enjoy!
