Peaches are in season and I have been enjoying snacking on them. I was thinking that a peach bread would make for a nice breakfast this week. I was envisioning a bread with nice large chunks of peaches in it. I had really enjoyed the blueberry maple oatmeal muffins with pecan streusel and I thought that the recipe would make for a nice bread. I pretty much just took the blueberry muffin recipe and replaced the blueberries with peaches and made it in a loaf pan instead of a muffin pan. The peach bread turned out really well. It was nice and light and moist and full of peach goodness. I tried serving the peach bread with a maple peach sauce.
