Delicious, moist and full of flavour! I did not use the pecans or make the sauce, as I was giving two of them for gifts. I absolutely love toasting quick breads and did just that with your recipe and had it with a cup of tea. I was in heaven! Thank you for sharing another keeper recipe! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
