Delicious and Easy, Member Melanshap

I made this for a board meeting held at my house last night and it got rave reviews. It made 2 nice loaves, maybe could have reduced the baking time by 5 minutes or so (I left it in for 1 hr 20 min). Great flavor, not too sweet. Nice crunch with the pecans. Definately a keeper!
