This on the go 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!!
What You'll Need
slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
pecans, toasted for 5 minutes in a 350F oven and then coarsely chopped
medium apple, cored and diced finely (leave the skin on- it's good for you!)
(one stick) softened butter
packed light brown sugar
dark amber maple syrup
cups all purpose flour
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 a 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 9 x 5 inch well buttered loaf pan. Bake in a pre heated 350F oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until that toothpick comes out clean.
I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining.
My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
