Peach Bread

Peach Bread

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.

Peach Bread

Ingredients:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup vanilla yogurt
1 over ripe banana (mashed)
1/4 cup butter (melted)
1 egg
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup peaches (stoned, peeled and cut into bite sized pieces)
1/4 cup pecans
1/4 cup flour
pinch cinnamon
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoon unsalted butter

Directions:
1. Mix the brown sugar, maple syrup, yogurt, banana, butter, egg and rolled oats in a bowl and let it sit for 10 minutes.
2. Mix the flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl.
3. Mix the wet and dry ingredients along with the peaches until just mixed.
4. Spoon the mixture into a greased 9x5 inch loaf pan.
5. Mix the pecans, flour, cinnamon, brown sugar and butter until they form crumbs.
6. Spoon the streusel over the bread.
7. Bake in a preheated 375F oven until a toothpick pushed into the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes.

The peach bread sounds like a wonderful idea! I like those huge chunks of peaches you added instead of miniture pieces that would disappear into the loaf. I'd like to make that, but peaches never last that long in my house.. we live off peaches!

I've used several recipes from your sight and usually really love them! Thanks! I tried this and the taste was terrific, but it was too moist in the middle. I even wrapped it in foil and baked it again. Have any suggestions?

UCLA Scientist said...

I didn't like it. I found it heavy and dry. I made my own version with is much better.

Kevin Lynch said...

UCLA Scientist: Odd, it should be nice and light and moist! Did you make any changes?
