TIPS FOR MAKING MOIST CINNAMON PEACH BREAD
- Prep time: Preheat your oven and prepare your loaf pan. Spread butter over the base and sides of the pan and then sprinkle it with flour. Another option is lining the pan with parchment paper. Next, peel and slice the peaches and set them to the side.
- Bread batter: Add the eggs, oil, granulated sugar, and vanilla to a large mixing bowl. Whisk the wet ingredients together by hand until well blended. Sift together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. It’s important to sift the dry ingredients before you add them to the mixing bowl. It will help make a lighter batter that combines more easily. Mix the wet and dry ingredients until just combined, but don’t over-mix. Fold the peaches into the batter to finish.
- Bake: Pour the Cinnamon Peach Bread batter into the prepared pan and bake for 55-60 minutes. When the bread looks done, use a toothpick to check. Stick the toothpick in the center of the bread, and if it comes out clean take the loaf from the oven. Let the bread cool on a wire rack before slicing.
VARIATIONS ON CINNAMON PEACH BREAD
- Fruit: You can add different fruits to this quick bread along with the peaches. Try mixing in some strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or pitted cherries.
- Streusel topping: You can make a brown sugar streusel topping for some extra texture and sweetness. Just use a pastry cutter to combine ½ cup brown sugar, ½ cup granulated sugar, ½ cup flour, 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon, ⅛ teaspoon salt, and ¼ cup cold butter in a bowl. Once it’s combined into coarse crumbs, sprinkle the topping over the bread before baking.
- Canned peaches: If you don’t have ripe peaches, you can use canned peaches in the recipe. Just make sure to drain them.
- Flour: Instead of white flour you can use wheat flour or whole-grain flour in your bread. You could also make the Cinnamon Peach Bread gluten-free with almond flour, oat flour, or coconut flour.
