PINEAPPLE-NUT BREAD

This is another old recipe from my childhood.

1 cup pecans, chopped fine
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 tsp lemon peel
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
8.5-oz can crushed pineapple, undrained
1/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Butter a 9-inch loaf pan; add 1/4 cup of the pecans and shake around in pan to coat. Lightly sprinkle these nuts with a pinch of sugar. Set pan aside.

In a medium bowl,blend together the butter and lemon peel; beat in sugar and add egg. Sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda into the sugar mixture alternately with the pineapple. Add the milk and mix well. Stir in the remaining nuts and pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
