Cinnamon Streusel Peach Bread is an amazing combination of fresh, flavorful peaches, warm spices, and streusel topping all in a moist quick bread recipe.
If you like classic Southern Peach Pie, then you’re sure to love this quick bread recipe. Just like peach pie, it combines the tart, refreshing flavor of fresh peaches with the warm taste of cinnamon. They come together for an explosion of delicious flavor that’s perfect to enjoy with in-season sweet summer peaches.
Along with the perfect peach flavor, the juicy peaches in the recipe also add extra moisture to the bread. The batter will absorb some of the juice from the peaches while it bakes. So once it’s done, you’ll have the most tender sweet bread ever.
This is a versatile recipe that you can enjoy any time of year and any time of day. The recipe has the most amazing taste during the summer months when you can get peaches at their ripest. However, you can find peaches in the grocery store year-round and the other ingredients help make up for any flavor peaches might lack.
Peach Bread is great to make during the beginning of the week and enjoy for the next several days. You can cut a warm slice and butter it for an easy breakfast, enjoy it as an afternoon pick-me-up, or serve it with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream for an amazing dessert.

TIPS FOR MAKING CINNAMON STREUSEL PEACH BREAD
- Prep: Preheat the oven and lightly grease your pan with butter and a sprinkling of flour. This will help the bread to come smoothly out of the pan.

- Batter: Add the eggs, oil, sugar, and vanilla to a large mixing bowl. Whisk those ingredients together until they’re well blended. In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. Then add them to the wet ingredients. Stir until just combined, being careful not to overmix. Fold the peach slices into the dough to finish.
- Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Take the streusel topping from the fridge and sprinkle it over the top. Bake the bread for 55 minutes to 1 hour. Use a toothpick to check if the bread is done. Stick the toothpick in the center, and if it comes out clean the bread is done.
