Avocado Bread With Pecans and Lime Glaze

This is an unique recipe that I have found in a cookbook called "The Best quickbreads". I was kind of scared to try it at first and I'm not much of a lime fan, but it turns out yummy.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan or spray with nonstick spray.

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the beaten egg, avocado, yogurt and nuts.
  • Beat with a spoon to mix well.
  • Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, lime zest and salt in a small bowl.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and stir with a spatula until smooth and just moistened. Do not overmix.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake in the center of the oven until golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 45-55 minutes.
  • Let loaf rest in its pan on a rack to cool.
  • To make the Lime Syrup: Combine the sugar and lime juice in a small saucepan.
  • Place over low heat until sugar just dissolves.
  • Pierce the loaf about a dozen times to the bottom with a bamboo skewer, toothpick, or metal cake tester.
  • Immediately pour the hot syrup over the warm loaf.
  • Let cool for 30 minutes in the pan before turning the loaf out of the pan onto a rack, then turning it right side up to cool completely.
  • Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature overnight before serving.
