Pecan loaves

Yield: 3 Loaves

Measure Ingredient
1½ cup Sifted all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Baking powder
1 teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Mace
½ teaspoon Nutmeg
¾ cup Brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup Chopped pecans
1½ cup Quaker Oats, uncooked (quick or old-fashioned)
1⅓ cup Milk
1 Egg; beaten
¼ cup Vegetable oil

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and spices into bowl. Stir in sugar, pecans and oats. Add remaining ingredients; stir only until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into 3 greased empty cans, about 2 cup capacity.

Bake in preheated moderate oven (350 F.) about 50 minutes. Loosen edges; remove from cans immediately; cool thoroughly. Wrap cooled bread and store one day before slicing.
