Maple Pecan Bread

I had Pecan bread at one of my friends’ place and I have been wanting to make it ever since. I had gotten the recipe from her and I have been wanting to try this recipe. I love maple syrup on pancakes and the flavor of maple. So I just twisted this recipe a little by adding maple flavor. If you want you can also try without adding maple flavor. It will turn out delicious either way.

It came out very tasty and perfect. My husband and MIL loved it and they both keep saying it tasted just like the walnut cake they used to love from Adyar Bakery in Chennai. Try this recipe and let me know if you liked it.
