Pecan Loaves Recipe

Step 1

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and spices into bowl. Stir in sugar, pecans and oats. Add remaining ingredients; stir only until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into 3 greased empty cans, about 2 cup capacity.

Step 2

Bake in preheated moderate oven (350 F.) about 50 minutes. Loosen edges; remove from cans immediately; cool thoroughly. Wrap cooled bread and store one day before slicing.

NOTE: For variety, use 1 cup chopped pitted dates or prunes in place of pecans in above recipe.
