This was a very nice flavoured loaf. The size of the loaf was perfect in my loaf tin, and I don't recommend doubling it as another person suggested. The maple and pecan flavours were just right. Thank you! My quilting group raved about it.

This was a nice loaf.I didn't find it had quite enough maple taste for my liking.It also seemed that there wasn't enough batter.It did not rise very much.Next time I think I will double the recipe to make a larger loaf.
