Lemon Rosemary Bread with Pecans

Kelly Williams


This bread was absolutely fabulous! We could hardly wait until it was done, as the aroma wafting through the house was to die for! This recipe was originally posted in "Real Simple" magazine, but the flavors are anything but! It called for walnuts, but I used pecans as that was what I had on hand and prefer. Either would work fine so just use your own personal favorite! I do hope you try this! It's easy to make and bakes up beautifully!
