Peach Bread

We are big bread eaters in this family. We love sandwiches, toast, bread pudding, mmmm. I make some sort of homemade bread on a weekly basis. I love fruit bread because it makes a great breakfast and dessert. Plus, it's got fruit in it so I feel good about serving it to Beatrice. Yesterday, I had a hankering for peach bread. So I made some. Then I ate some. And today, because I am still eating some, I am sharing the recipe with you so you can eat some too!

Peach bread is like banana bread, but with peaches. And cinnamon. It is moist and dense and really yummy with cinnamon butter or peach preserves. This recipe yields 2 loaves. Would you judge me if I told you we ate an entire loaf in less than 24 hours?

Peach Bread

1 1/2 c sugar
1/2 c butter, softened
2 eggs
2 c pureed peaches, with some larger bits included (I threw a bag of frozen peaches in the blender for a few seconds to achieve puree + bits)
2 c all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

In a large bowl, combine sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add in eggs, then the peach puree and bits. Add the dry ingredients a little at a time, making sure to blend well before you add more. Stir in the vanilla. Pour the batter into 2 greased loaf pans and bake at 325 for 55 minutes. 

Make this today!!!


  1. I have not tried nor heard of peach bread before. Sounds yummy though-I'll give this recipe a shot. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I'm going to try this with mango puree since we have an overabundance of those and see how it turns out. Thank you for the idea.
