I don’t want much TV, but I have a couple channels that are a go-to for me if its on. One of them is Food Network.
And since I seem to be on the computer more then I am in front of the TV, you can see why I might like the FN Dish blog!
Each summer the fabulous folks over at FN Dish put together “Summer Fest” in which they share tips and recipes about season produce.
This week is peach!
There is something so comforting about a fresh juicy peach in the summer time.
Confession? Sometimes I wish I was a Southern Belle. Its tough being a Yankee.
Now go laugh amongst yourselves.
I decided to do a peach bread. This bread is similar to a banana bread, but so distinctive in its savour. The first bite is sweet with a smooth crumbly texture, but after a moment the peach really makes itself known, and your taste buds are infused with the luscious soothing flavor.
Sometimes ‘good’ is just not good enough for me… so I went ahead and made a peach simple syrup to drizzle over the bread. The recipe was so simple, but the effect was amazing!
I had a small amount of batter left over, so decided to make a couple muffins* as well.
*I used my favorite muffin tin that has this beautiful intricate design, but this bread did not show that off well. I think the pan would be best used with a more sturdy batter.
These little guys were perfect after being slightly warmed then drizzled in a sugary glaze.
Tips for success:
Watch baking times closely. I would start checking the bread at 35 minutes. I also covered the bread with aluminum foil at about 40 minutes to prevent further browning on top.
Use some big chunks of peach. I used a potato masher to crush the peaches, which left me with some larger clumps. These ended up being the most tasty bites in the bread, next time I would even consider adding more peach!

We made this last night – two loaves and two pans of muffins – and it was amazing!! Yum!! We used a mix of white and yellow peaches and you were right about the chunky bits being delicious.
I made this bread yesterday and not too happy about the outcome. Your recipe calls for baking soda – I think it was supposed to have baking powder – was quite mushy. Won’t use this one again. Betty W in Albuquerque, NM
I added tsp of vanilla. Chopped the peaches up. Baked at 350. For about an hour and watched the load after that till it was done. I made this in a Cake pan as well.
Hi! I was just wondering what temperature to bake the bread? I’m assuming 350°F? Thank you.
I wish this has ingredients or instructions. I would love to make this!
All your peach recipes say the recipe has no ingredients/instructions. I also tried through Pinterest.
