This is a very good, and not too sweet bread. Aside from adding a full cup of pecans, I made it as posted. It is so easy to make. I think covering it with foil the last half-hour is a step that should not be skipped. I will make this again. It's a keeper. thanks Melody.
This is some really yummy bread! I used whole wheat pastry flour (and 2 tbsp. of buckwheat flour because I was out of the whole wheat pastry or white) and sucanat (organic unrefined can sugar) so mine came out very brown (which is why I didn't take a picture). It has lovely flavor though, from the applesauce and oklahoma pecans. I liked the strudel topping quite a bit. Mine was crumbly but since I'm not sure if that was because of my subs. I'm not going to review on that. A lovely sweet bread that has great flavor.
