Super Moist Apple Pecan Bread

I received this recipe from a recent potluck.  It is called a bread, but it could pass for a cake.  Anyway you slice it, this fall inspired bread/cake is delicious and great with coffee.  It is simple to put together and you can mix the ingredients in one big bowl.  Keeps for a few days if wrapped well.

Super Moist Apple Pecan Bread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Bake time 40 to 50 minutes
I use 10x12 disposable aluminium pan
Can use loaf pan or a 9x13 cake pan

Bread Ingredients:
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup light colored oil (corn, canola, safflower)
2 eggs 
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch salt
3 large gala apples chopped up finely (I use food processor to chop)
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Topping before baking:
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 Tablespoons chopped pecan nuts

Grease and Flour your pan.

In a large bowl mix sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla.  I use a large whisk.  

Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.  Beat until you get a smooth batter.  Add apples and nuts and mix well.  Place batter in pan.  Smooth out.

Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top with 2 Tablespoons chopped nuts.

Bake for 35-45 minutes.  Do toothpick test.  Should be firm to touch.  

Can remove from loaf pan after 10 minutes or serve directly in the pan,
 if using a 10x12 or 9 x 13 pan.

After it has cooled completely drizzle with Glaze.

Powder Sugar

Mix a few tablespoons of powder sugar with a little water to make a glaze.  Drizzle glaze on top after bread has cooled completely.
