Nutty Peach Quick Bread Recipe

A crunchy topping of brown sugar and oats covers these mini loaves that have little chunks of peaches throughout. "You can substitute three peeled and diced pears or 1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries, raspberries or blackberries for the peaches," suggests Ron Gardner of Grand Haven, Michigan.
