Pecan Breakfast Loaf Recipe

This quick bread has the terrific taste of caramel yeast rolls but with the convenience of refrigerated crescent rolls. Each Thanksgiving, I make several breads for my husband to share with his fellow teachers.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup pecan halves
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • 1. Separate crescent dough into 16 triangles. Spread each with butter. Combine sugar, chopped pecans and cinnamon; sprinkle over triangles. Beginning at the wide end, roll up each triangle.
  • 2. In a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan, place rolls, point side down, widthwise in two layers. Bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
  • 3. Top with pecan halves. In a small saucepan, combine glaze ingredients; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cool for 5 minutes. Drizzle over warm bread. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).
