Maple Apple Pecan Bread

Top 5 reasons you will "Fall" in love with this Fall bread today:

5.  This is a bread that is so rustic and beautiful.  Slices and behaves very well.

4.  Apples in October are in natural abundance, so I know your fridge is packed with local orchard apples right now.

3.  Maple.  That is all.

2.  It makes your whole house smell better than anything in the entire world.  Open the windows to make all your neighbors jealous.  (Oh Yeah!  Neighbors...that smell is coming from my house!)  I left shortly after baking this loaf and smelled it when I turned back into the block.  Pure heaven!

1.  So yummy, so healthy, so Fall.
