Spice Bread

Hello Everyone! I just made this bread, and everytime I do I can't stop eating it! There is this yummy glaze you pour over the top of it, and let me just tell you that you can literally eat it out of the pan. It's good! So, there is a secret ingredient in this. If I hadn't eaten this first, I probably would never had made it. My mom made this for me when I was a kid and I never knew there was this ingredient in it. When she gave me the recipe...I had to look at it twice! The other night my YW were over at my house and they had some...they couldn't figure out what it was, I told them and they just laughed...So, what is the wierd ingredient??? Check it out yourself! But don't let it hinder you from making it. You should want to make it even more now because you are so curious! I promise you, it is my FAVORITE bread!


Spice Bread


2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon (I usually do close to 2 tsp.)
1/2 tsp. nutmeg (I do close to 1 tsp.)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 eggs
1 c. vegetable oil
2 (6 oz.) jars plum baby food***
1 c. chopped walnuts (opt.)

Sift dry ingredients. Make a well or hole in center of bowl, add everything else. Mix well. Pour into 2 bread pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or more.
***I have had a hard time finding plum baby food...so this time I used Apple Blueberry...tasted the exact same. It just gives the bread a nice rich color.

Topping:
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. evaporated milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. margarine
1/8 tsp. soda

Mix in saucepan and bring to boil. Stir constantly. Cook for 3 minutes. When bread is doen, still in the pan, punch holes in it with a large serving fork. Pour sauce over bread and let cool. Freezes well.

So...now that you know the wierd ingredient...whose gonna try it???
