I have had this bread recipe for so many years I can’t remember where I found it. It is still just as delicious today as it was when I first made it years ago. I enjoy it best with coffee for breakfast!
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 cup applesauce
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cinnamon; stir in the pecans.
3. In a large mixer bowl, beat the egg, oil and applesauce. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture; stir just until blended.
4. Pour into a greased 5.25 x 9 x 2.75-inch loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until wooden toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean. Cool in pan 5 minutes. Turn out onto wire rack to cool completely. Makes 1 loaf.
