Schnucks nonstick cooking spray
3/4 cup pecan chips
2-1/4 cups Schnucks all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder

Gradually add granulated sugar and beat until well combined; scrape bowl. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping bowl occasionally. Alternately add flour mixture and milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture, scraping bowl occasionally; with rubber spatula, fold in pecans. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 55 minutes to 1 hour or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

3. Meanwhile, from lemon, grate 1 teaspoon peel and squeeze 2 tablespoons juice into small bowl. With whisk, stir in powdered sugar until smooth. With brush, brush powdered sugar mixture over hot loaf. Cool in pan on wire rack 15 minutes; remove loaf from pan and cool completely on rack. Makes 1 loaf.
