Welsh Pecan Bread
Best served up in front of a crackling fire, in the dead of winter, with a cup of coffee and a kiss.
- 1 c pecans
- 1 egg
- 1 c sugar
- 2 c flour
- 1 c milk
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp mace or cloves
- 2 tsp nutmeg
Mix all ingredients together and pour into greased loaf pan. Bake 1 hour @ 350 degrees
To add zing, poke several holes halfway into the bread with chopsticks or something similar, and drizzle basic powdered sugar icing that’s diluted just a bit with milk so it will drip.
For my gluten and dairy intolerant friends, use the following substitutes:
– Egg: 1 heaping TBL of Vegenaise for each egg (found at Fred Meyers and your local health-food store)
– Flour: Bob’s Red Mill Garbanzo and Fava Bean Flour. Add 1 TBL white rice flour.
– Milk: Cashew, Soy, Hazel Nut or Almond milk (I prefer Cashew or Soy milk)
