Peach Bread

I’m a South Carolina girl, born and raised and I’m very proud that South Carolina ranks 2nd in peach production behind California which is 1st. Georgia, aka, the “Peach State” ranks 3rd and has some pretty darn good peaches as well!

Many great recipes come to mind when I think of this fruit. Peach cobbler, peach pie, fried peach pies, peach ice cream, the list goes on. Frankly, I don’t even have to eat peaches wrapped in sugar, I can just eat them alone as a snack because they are just that good when in season. I made this peach bread for the first time a few years back because I wanted to try a new quick bread recipe. It was awesome and definitely a family favorite.

Peach Bread adapted from

2 cups white sugar

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup room temperature butter

2 cups AP flour

3 eggs

2 1/2 cups peaches peeled and sliced (about 5 peaches)

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350

Cream together butter and both sugars. Add beaten eggs, peaches, salt, cinnamon, flour, and baking soda. Stir until combined.

Pour into prepared dish.

I used 2 loaf pans and had some batter left over for a few muffins. I cooked the bread for about an hour, but watch it as you know that oven cook times vary.

Take a peek at the final results.

As I mentioned above, the bread was a hit with my family! My Aunt Jackie described how the bread turned out best when she said, “It reminds me of bread pudding” and she couldn’t have been more correct! So you know what that meant? Had to buy ice cream and add it along side the bread and I must say it was Fab-u-lous!! The reason I believe the bread was so moist was because I took time to squeeze the cut peaches so all those juices really went to work in keeping the bread moist.
