Peach Bread

20160812_085154

Here’s a quick new recipe that’s perfect for those stone fruits that are so in season and (usually) so sweet, juicy, and delicious. Normally, I eat my fruits as is to really taste those beautiful sweet juices, but sometimes, we aren’t always that lucky. My mom made the unfortunate mistake of buying very dry, mealy peaches at the supermarket. They were probably the driest, stringiest disappointments I have ever come across for stone fruits. What to do? Bake a lovely, cinnamon-spiced peach bread that’s moist and flavorful. It’s an easy quick bread that can be done in one bowl. Don’t over mix and feel free to add in different or more nuts, a streusel, and other frozen berries to make it more customized. Enjoy!
