MAPLE PECAN LOAF
Fall is hereee! And what better way to get in the season than to bake this Maple Pecan Loaf? This loaf makes your entire house smell amaaazing. It’s so easy to make and it just happens to be dairy free!
It takes less than 30 minutes to whip up this nutty, warm loaf and the steps couldn’t be easier.
- Whisk milk and apple cider vinegar vigorously for about two minutes
- Then add vanilla extract, maple syrup and oil
- In a separate bowl, mix whole wheat flour, dark brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
- Fold in pecans, throw it in the oven – while it’s baking make the cream cheese frosting and that’s it, you’re done!
Since the loaf is dairy free, don’t expect it to rise as much as loaf with dairy would. It should come about halfway up in the loaf pan, but don’t worry it will still be nice and fluffy, I promise.
Cream Cheese Frosting
For the cream cheese frosting, I used regular cream cheese because I didn’t have any of my beloved Tofutti. Tofutti Cream Cheese is my favorite non-dairy cream cheese because it tastes exactly like regular cream cheese. It makes for a great dairy free frosting.
