Special Touch
For a crunchy praline topping, mix 1/3 cup packed brown sugar, 1/3 cup chopped pecans and 1 tablespoon softened butter or margarine until crumbly, and sprinkle over the batter before baking.
Variation
To make regular-sized loaves, grease just the bottoms of 2 loaf pans, 9x5x3 or 8 1/2x4 1/2x2 1/2 inches. Bake 50 to 60 minutes.
