1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed 1 egg 3/4 cup buttermilk 2 teaspoons soda 2 cups flour 1 cup apple butter 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon nutmeg 1 teaspoon allspice 1/2 teaspoon cloves 1/2 cup pecans
Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and beat well. Combine buttermilk and soda. Combine flour and spices. Add alternately with buttermilk beginning and ending with flour. Stir in apple butter and pecans. Pour into greased and floured 9 x 5 x 3 loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hr or until wooden pick inserted comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 mins; remove to wire rack and cool completely.
I have it in the oven now, but did not read the reviews until now. I also thought it was too much batter for one loaf pan so I put some of it in a small loaf pan.

The baking dish size is too small. It is running over as we speak, and I used the size named.

Used a no sugar apple butter. Toasted the nuts before adding to the recipe using pecans on one batch and walnuts on another. Also sprinkled Demerara Cane Sugar to the top of the loaf before baking. Had great success doubleing this recipe too. Texture and looks were appealing and the taste delightful. If you have a sweeeet tooth this may not be for you.
