📋How to make Peach Quick Bread
STEP 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Start by dicing your peaches into bite-size pieces.
STEP 2: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Mix until well combined.
STEP 3: In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to cream together the sugar, eggs, and vegetable oil. Add the wet mixture to the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir well until the batter forms. Then gently fold in diced peaches.
STEP 4: Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center. The bread is ready when it comes out clean.
STEP 5: Remove this easy quick bread from the oven and let it cool. While it is cooling, start working on the glaze.
STEP 6: To make the glaze, combine powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl until the powdered sugar has dissolved.
STEP 7: Brush or pour the powdered sugar glaze over the peach bread loaf. Slice and serve!
You can refrigerate any leftover peach loaf, though if your family is anything like mine, there won't be many leftovers. I hope you enjoy this easy peach bread recipe. It goes wonderfully with a cup of coffee!
Tip 1: I left the skin on the peach for easy preparation, but you can peel or blanch if desired.
Tip 2: Let the peach quick bread cool in the pan for about 10 minutes then remove it and place it on a wire rack to cool completely. This helps keep the bread from falling apart.
How do you peel peaches?
I just work with a sharp paring knife, carefully removing the skin. If you think you'd rather not do that, you can always peel peaches easily by boiling them. Here is a good tutorial on how to peel peaches.
How do I know if peaches are ripe enough?
My general rule of thumb involves picking up a peach and squeezing it. If the peach has no give, it will not work in this recipe. If your fingers sink into the peach a bit, the peach is ripe enough for this recipe.
Can I freeze peach bread?
Yes, simply wrap in saran wrap and place in a zip top bag. You can freeze the bread for up to 3 months. Thaw it overnight in the refrigerator.
