Description: A traditional treat in our house every Christmas! This moist quick bread has a sweet glaze that seeps into the loaves!.... Mmmmm!

1 cup  all- purpose flour
3/4 cup  sugar
1/2 tsp.  baking soda
1/2 tsp.  ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp.  salt
1/8 tsp..  ground nutmeg
1  egg, lightly beaten
1  egg yolk, lightly beaten
1 jar (4 oz.)  plum baby food
1/4 cup  sugar
1/4 cup  vegetable oil
1/2 cup  chopped pecans or walnuts
2 TBLS.  buttermilk
2 TBLS.  butter
1/4 tsp.  pure vanilla extract

Instructions: Directions
In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Stir in the egg, egg yolk, baby food and oil just until moistened. Fold in nuts. Spoon into two greased 5-3/4-in. x 3-in. x 2-in. loaf pans. Bake at 325 for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the sugar, buttermilk and butter; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Poke holes with a fork in top of loaves. Pour topping over loaves. Cool in pans for 10 minutes or until topping is absorbed. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 mini loaves.
