Spiced Peach Bread

As I was scrolling through Pinterest (obviously) doing my weekly meal planning, I came across a few peach bread recipes. We had an entire bag of fresh-frozen peaches so I thought that that may be a good way to use them. Athena LOVES breakfast, second breakfast, elevensies….well a full Hobbit scheduling including snack after dinner if we’re being honest.

As is my usual baking form, I looked at a few recipes, blended them together, added my own twist, and this is what I came up with:

  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups All purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon (or as much as you want)
  • 1/2 tsp ground Ginger (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • ***I used 1/3 cup Natural Vanilla Creamer to get both the vanilla AND milk portion as a cheat***
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup soft butter
  • As much peach as you want- can you have too much?

-Topping: Brown sugar, turbinado sugar, cinnamon, & ginger
-Cinnamon Butter: the rest of the stick of butter (1/3 cup leaves you with a few tablespoons), Cinnamon

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Rough chop a peach….or 2. You do you.
  3. Combine the softened butter, sugars, eggs, and creamer. It will look a little chunk. It’s ok.
  4. Add in your chopped peach, cinnamon, and ginger.
  5. Sprinkle in your flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt
  6. Line a 9×5 bread pan with parchment paper. You can grease and flour it, but parchment makes your life easier.
  7. Mix the topping sugars and spices. Sprinkle over the top trying to get an even covering.
  8. Bake for 45 minutes. Check it. You may need up to 55 minutes, but I like to start checking around 45.
  9. While baking, use a fork to mix in some cinnamon with the remaining butter from your stick. Use this to butter a slice of peach bread while it’s still warm…trust me.

Serve warm with your cinnamon butter or happily eat it room temperature. Keep in an air tight container or ziplock. I highly recommend a few minutes in the toaster to re-warm it if you’re going to eat it for breakfast during the week.
