      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.

      Koko-girl, first of all, welcome to! You will love it as much as I love this recipe of yours:) I made it this evening and it was well enjoyed by everyone. I used a packet of pecans that a wonderful woman, Karen Wilson,who I know from Recipezaar, sent me as a SURPRISE! (Where I live, pecans are terribly expensive and difficult to get in common places). Karen is the first to get me a bag of pecans from across the world! Now coming back to your amazing pecan maple loaf, I made a few substitutions and omissions. I used margarine instead of butter(3/4 cup melted margarine), a few drops of lemon juice instead of the lemon zest(nobody in my family likes the idea of zest in anything) and a combo of walnuts and pecans! This was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I was slightly short of 1/2 cup of pecans, so, I used 4-5 walnuts in addition to the chopped pecans(Thank Heavens for small mercies, Karen had sent me "chopped" pecans and this I really really appreciate). Now, while I was mixing up the batter, I realised I had only 2 tbsps. of maple syrup! Oh no! I was out of the main ingredient! I wasn't panicked, but for sure, in a mood to experiment! So, instead of 5 tbsps. maple syrup, I used a combo - 2 tbsps. maple syrup, 2 tbsps. golden syrup(heaped) and 1 tbsp. honey! A master blaster combo that created magic in the loaf's batter - it tasted amazing when put together, do try it for me the next time you get around to baking this one. I bake in my AMC Dutch oven, almost always, and this took 1 hour 10 minutes to bake. After that, when I did the toothpick test, a few crumbs came out clinging to the toothpick. So, I allowed the loaf to sit in the pan, covered, for another 15 minutes. After that, I frosted it with the frosting you gave alongwith the loaf. It is SIMPLY AMAZING!!!! The loaf is INCOMPLETE without the icing, IMHO:) We had guests this evening(you know, UNINVITED SOULS!) and they fell in love with this loaf. Thanks so much for saving my skin:) And again, a warm hug and welcome to Zaar from me to you.
