      I also added cocoa powder and I used mini chocolate chips! But I left out the pecans. Thanks!

      just wonderful! the only thing i changed was to bake it all in one oversized nordicware fancy loaf pan, so i baked it for an extra 15 minutes. the glaze looked lovely over the design of the cake. updated 11/06- i made these again without the glaze and brought them into the office. everyone loved these and they literally were both gone in minutes. my boss actually asked me for the recipe in case his wife wanted to bake it, lol. if i get a raise i can thank you :) 12/26/08- updating yet again, i've made these loaves for the past 4 weeks now, everyone in my office just loves them. i omit the glaze, but they are sweet and tart and just the perfect seasonal gift.
