Breakfast in Bread
This quick bread has everything you need for breakfast - bacon, eggs, fruit, maple syrup all rolled into one. So pour yourself a cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk and enjoy!
Makes on 9x5 inch loaf
4 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1/2 cup pecans, toasted for 5 minutes in a 350F oven and then coarsely chopped
1 medium apple, cored and finely chopped
8 Tbl butter (one stick)
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup dark amber maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a small mixing bowl and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until fluffy with an electric mixer. Add the eggs, one at a time while beating and then add the syrup and vanilla extract.
Stir in the apple, pecans and bacon and then stir in the flour mixture a little at a time until fully incorporated.
Pour the mixture into a 9x5 inch well buttered loaf pan. Bake in a pre heated 350F oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until that toothpick comes out clean.
