This is probably #2 of my Top Ten all time favorites. The recipe won Harold Freeman of Phoenix $150 in a newspaper contest probably 20 years ago. He should have easily won $500, as I've made many life long friends equally addicted to Harold's tipsy bread. I usually make it in mini foil pans for gifts. Don't skip the special cheese spread, as It really adds the lagniappe! Try it soon, and maybe we can each chip in another $5 to bring Harold his just reward for a great recipe!
This recipe was shared by a "chef" on another web site. A real family pleaser made much easier with the bread machine. The prep time below includes bread machine and rising time. With all those wonderful pecans, this has to be a Southern U.S. recipe.
