Nut Bread

I had been baking all day (more posts to come about all of that!)  I was just wrapping up the Eggnog Bundt Cake to freeze for Thanksgiving,  when my husband asked me "Where is my dessert?"  Honestly, I felt a little impatient, after all I had been baking all day and then I caught myself and asked him what would you like?  His reply "you know I like a spice cake."  So, this is the story of the Spice Bread which evolved from the Pillsbury Dough Boy Quick Bread Mix!

During this time of the year, I always have extra baking ingredients on hand and thank goodness I did, because with this list of ingredients I turned this rather simple nut bread to a fantastic bread loaded with extra flavor and a pop of chocolate chips and pecans!

Follow the instructions on the back of the Quick Bread Box, but add the following ingredients!

1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp allspice
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp rum extract

This is not only a hit with my husband, a little angel loves it too- especially with a little butter spread on it and a cold glass of milk!  My Granddaughter-Afton!!

I am so pleased with this nut bread recipe that I will be baking it again!
