I was born and raised in Alabama and I have never heard of this before. If it’s from Alabama it’s got to be great, right?
It was the name of the bread that caught my attention. Not the Alabama part, the PECAN part! I love pecans! Especially when they are baked into loaves of bread and desserts.
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup oil
4 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cup self-rising flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups pecans, chopped
In a large mixing bowl, add the sugars, oil, and eggs. With a wooden spoon mix until thoroughly combined. Add the flour, vanilla, and salt, again mixing well. Fold in the pecans until they are evenly dispersed throughout the batter. This is a sticky, gooey batter.
Pour the mix into a buttered 9×13 inch baking dish. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
While the bread is baking, mix up a batch of homemade whipped cream. A little more sweetness never hurts!
