I found this recipe online yesterday from Cooks.com while looking for a new recipe to use up the chopped pecans I have left over from Christmas.
It was awesome and smelled great in the oven.
More important, the kids all liked it too.
I made a few changes to the original recipe (because of the ingredient amounts I actually had on hand and it was very tasty.) The kids said to definitely make this one again...so I guess that makes it "blog worthy!"
Apple Pecan Loaf
2 Apples, raw, peeled and diced (I used red delicious because that's what I had)
3 Cups Flour
2 Cups of Sugar
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 Cup Oil
1 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Vanilla
1 Cup Pecans, chopped (I think I'd use 3/4 next time)
1 tsp. Cinnamon
Put the diced apples in a bowl, add sugar and let stand for 20 minutes. Add remaining ingredients (except nuts). Mix well. Add nuts. Pour into standard size loaf pan (greased). Bake at 350 for 1 hour (The recipe says 1 hour - but it took almost an hour and half for mine to be cooked through since it was a very thick dough!)
