Apple Butterscotch Pecan Bread

Apple Butterscotch Pecan Bread

Happy happy happy Friday!

Well, I’m in a good mood today…because I’m on a little weekend trip.   #woohoo  #allthetiredmamassaidamen

Don’t forget, I’m giving one lucky winner a $500 Nordstrom Gift Card on Tuesday, so if you haven’t entered to win (and seriously, YOU SHOULD!), then click HERE.

In the meantime, I have what I am calling THE BEST BREAD RECIPE I’VE EVER MADE for you today.  And friends, I’ve made some reallllllly good bread recipes before!  This bread just turned out PERFECTLY, and we loved it so much that I made it twice in one week.  If you’re looking for something sweet to make to take to neighbor or friend, just want a little something special with your morning coffee or something sweet at night, this recipe is for you.  And bonus, it will make your house smell like fall.

Have the best weekend everyone!

This recipe makes one loaf.

Shopping List
1 cup of sugar
1½ cups of mashed bananas (about 2)
1½ cups of applesauce
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup of all purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup of butterscotch chips
1 cup of toasted pecan pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly spray one loaf pan with cooking spray and then set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat sugar, bananas, apple sauce, vegetable oil and egg with an electric mixer.  Beat in vanilla.  Set bowl aside.
In a second mixing bowl, whisk together with a fork your flour, cinnamon and baking soda.
 Pour apple mixture slowly into flour mixture and blend together until just moistened with a spoon (not your mixer).  Stir in your butterscotch chips and pecan pieces  Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake one hour or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Allow bread to cool 10 minutes before removing it from the pan to finish cooling before slicing and enjoying.
Friends, this bread is seriously delish!  It’s moist and full of those fall flavors we love so much!!  Go ahead and make two loaves 🙂 .
Also, to toast up your pecan pieces, simply put them in a clean, dry skillet over medium-high heat for about 4 minutes.  That’s it!

    I think it sounds great, but butterscotch in there throws me off.

    Oh my … with this recipe and your pumpkin spice pecan monkey bread I might gain 10 pounds this fall. But it just might be worth it! Enjoy your mini-vacation!

  • Lisa N September 22, 2017 at 6:59 am

    Looks and sounds so good!
    Question….with all the baking you do, do you prefer to use your stand mixer or hand mixer more?

  • Amanda @ That Inspired Chick September 22, 2017 at 7:26 am

    Nice job on that bread! Looks picture perfect!!

    I always forget about butterscotch chips — I definitely need to add those to some fall baking soon!

  • Ramona Greenspan September 22, 2017 at 6:25 pm

    That looks amazing. I can’t wait to try it for myself.

  • Susie September 22, 2017 at 7:32 pm

    Random question: what’s your favorite primer/sunscreen for everyday usage?

  • Jennifer September 22, 2017 at 8:42 pm

    I just got an email about sending an Apple treat with my kindergartener next week. I know just what I’ll make.

  • Sue Wombough September 22, 2017 at 11:07 pm

    I need this bread in my life 😬 Also do you guys go to the Big Orange Pumpkin Patch or what’s your favorite pumpkin patch to take the kids to?

  • Shannon Grundy September 23, 2017 at 7:35 am

    Looks so good. What size loaf pan do you use?

  • Marie Claas September 25, 2017 at 3:10 pm

    I made this on Saturday. It tasted good, but it was way too wet. I used a glass loaf pan, which was probably wrong. I left it in much longer than the recipe said, until i could’nt leave it in any longer, or it would burn. But the middle was never done. One cup of flour seems like too little for all the wet ingredients in there. I don’t know what happened. It would really help to know what size loaf pan you used, and whether it was metal or glass. Did anyone else try this recipe and have trouble with it?

    • Mix and Match Mama September 26, 2017 at 4:24 am

      I used a metal pan both times I made it. I’m not sure what went wrong. The only thing I can think is that you used too much of one of the ingredients (too much banana maybe???). I’m sorry!

      • Marie Claas September 26, 2017 at 5:39 am

        I will give it another go with a metal loaf pan! I really want it to work out! Thanks for answering! Do you know the measurements of the pan you used?

        • Mix and Match Mama September 26, 2017 at 5:57 am

          8.5 by 4.5 🙂

          • Marie Claas September 26, 2017 at 6:44 am

            Thank you!!!

    • Jill F September 26, 2017 at 4:45 am

      I made this bread yesterday and had the exact same outcome as you! Also used a glass loaf pan. I’m bummed because I intended to bring it in to work today to share with my co-workers, but I guess I’ll just have to eat the top half. It is delicious, but not sure I’ll try making it again…

      • Mix and Match Mama September 26, 2017 at 4:53 am

        Bummer! I made it twice using these exact directions and it came out perfectly. I do use a glass pan from time to time, but primarily, I stick with metal.

    • Heather O'Brien September 30, 2017 at 8:39 am

      Same thing happened to me. I used a silicon loaf pan. I’ll probably just adjust the flour the next time.
