Handwritten Recipe Wednesday: Honey Pecan Loaf

Tonight I am going to the Rolling Meadows PL to do a recipe scrapbooking show:  Preserving Family Recipes. I talk a lot at that one about handwritten recipes, so today is a good day for it, seeing as I not put those types of recipes up on this blog on Wednesdays. I like the little note in the upper corner of this one:  $5 prizes, possibly? Anyone else have a guess?
 I've found any number of personal notations and additions to recipes in my collection, which makes it fun. This recipe looks delicious, too - enjoy!

Honey Pecan Loaf
1 C milk
1 C honey
1/4 C butter (I said delicious, not healthy.)
2 yolks slightly beaten
2 1/4 C sifted all purp. flour
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
3/4 C chopped pecans
In heavy pan combine milk honey sugar & butter.  Stir on heat till blended.  Cool. Stir in yolks.  Sift dry ing. Add to honey mix. Stir till well blended.  Stir in nuts.  Turn into greased wax paper lined & greased again 9-5-3 loaf pan.  Bake at 350F 1 hr, 5 min or till done. 
Cool in pan 10 min. Turn out on cake rack.  Delectable desert.
(Might be delectable in the desert too, but I think this person meant dessert.)

I love finding handwritten recipes tucked away in old cookbooks! It's the culinary collectors' equivalent of lost treasure.
