Orange Marmalade Pecan bread

This is a wonderful quick bread. It has a lovely brown crust and a subtle sweet flavor.

  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup evaporated fat free milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar free orange marmalade or apricot preserves
  • 2 tablespoons orange zest
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter one 9" by 5" loaf pan or five small 4" by 3" baking pans.

In a large bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, salt, baking powder, and vanilla. Beat well.

In a small sauce pan melt butter and add orange marmalade. Heat, while stirring, until marmalade has melted. Pour mixture into mixing bowl. Beat well. Add orange zest and flour. Beat just until blended. Stir in nuts.

Pour into baking pan(s). Bake 45 - 55 minutes if using large pan and 30 - 35 minutes if using small pans. Bake until lightly brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Do not over bake. Remove from pan and cool on a rack.
