Fruit Butter Bread

This is the first quick bread that Froggy has eaten and come back for more until it is all all gone.  I used homemade pumpkin butter.

Make this quick bread with cantaloupe butter, apple butter, pumpkin
butter, or your own favorite flavor.

    * 1 cup sugar
    * 1 cup fruit butter (apple, pumpkin, cantaloupe, etc.)
    * 1/3 cup vegetable oil
    * 2 eggs
    * 3 tablespoons milk
    * 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
    * 1 teaspoon soda
    * 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    * 1 cup chopped pecans (reserve 1/4 cup for topping)
    * .
    * Topping
    * 1/4 cup brown sugar
    * 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    * 1/4 cup chopped


Preheat oven to 350°. Combine topping ingredients; set aside. Combine sugar, fruit butter, oil, eggs and milk; stir to blend well. Sift dry ingredients together; add to mixture and stir until ingredients moistened. Stir in 3/4 cup chopped pecans. Pour in greased and floured loaf pan; sprinkle with topping. Bake for 55 to 65 minutes. To prevent excessive browning, cover loosely with foil after the first 30 minutes. Bread is done when a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center.
