"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Group 1~

1 cup sugar
1 cup applesauce
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
3 T milk

Group 2~

2 cups flour
1 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/4 t nutmeg
1/4 t cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped pecans

Topping ~

1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 t cinnamon

Place Group 2 ingredients together in a bowl and stir. Set

Mix Group 1 ingredients together in a mixer. Add Group 2
and mix well. Pour into 1 large or several small loaf pans. Fill
pan(s) about 3/4 full.

Mix topping ingredients together and sprinkle/spread on top
of breads before baking.

Bake at 350 for 45 to 60 minutes depending on size of pan
(s). For several loaves, rearrange mid-way through baking
time. Not recommended to use multiple shelves as browning
is never quite right. With several small loaves, you may have
to bake a few extra minutes. Breads will be firm but moist on

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Sur la Table sells the "paper baking molds"
that Mom used. They make it easy to make many loaves at
once, cover in foil, give away and freeze!
