Yummy! The pecans are optional.

Suggestion(s): I have also made half of the recipe and put it in a regular loaf pan. You just need to make sure it is not doughy in the middle and may require additional baking time.

In addition, I have put half of recipe into four mini loaf pans. When I do this, it does not take quite as long to cook.
