Apple Coffee Can Bread

4 medium-size cooking apples
2 cups sugar
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
12 teaspoon ground allspice
12 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup butter or 1 cup margarine
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour three 1-pound coffee cans. Tie a double band of aluminum foil around the cans to extend 2 inches above the edges of the cans. Grease the foil. Peel, core, and finely dice the apples. Place in a large bowl and mix with the sugar and pecans. Sift in the flour, baking soda, and spices. Mix well. Melt the butter in a small saucepan and stir in the vanilla. Lightly beat the eggs. Stir the eggs and butter into the apple mixture. Spoon the batter into the cans and bake for 1 1/4 hours or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the cans for 10 minutes; remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.
