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.
- 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
- Mix the brown sugar, maple syrup, yogurt, banana, butter, egg and rolled oats in a bowl and let it sit for 10 minutes.
- Mix the flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl.
- Mix the wet and dry ingredients along with the peaches until just mixed.
- Spoon the mixture into a greased 9×5 inch loaf pan.
- Mix the pecans, flour, cinnamon, brown sugar and butter until they form crumbs.
- Spoon the streusel over the bread.
- Bake in a preheated 375F/190C oven until a toothpick pushed into the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes.
Peaches in a bread sound sooo good! I love having them with everything else so this sounds great.

whoa…look at that lil’ chunks of peaches in the bread! Very tempting…

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 had a peach scone the other day and it reminded me of a friend who used to make peach bread. I’ve never made it but made a mental note to track down a recipe … and here you are with an amazing peach bread — nicely done!
That looks perfect to have for breakfast with coffee. I can still find good peaches here and may give it a try….thanks!
I love the idea of peach bread and the streusel topping is a great idea.
The peaches here are just starting to look really good, and I’m so excited!v

version control geek says
Must be veeeeery yummy. Oh, I love peach TvT
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 says
I didn't like it. I found it heavy and dry. I made my own version with is much better.
UCLA Scientist: Odd, it should be nice and light and moist! Did you make any changes?
