Reviews for Peach Cobbler Bread
"This recipe is awesome, thank you for sharing it. I omitted the pecans for our kids, although I am sure it's sooooooo delicious with them. :) I make homemade vanilla and used about 1 Tablespoon instead of a teaspoon and I tripled the peaches....love, love the flavor, just wasn't sure 1 cup would add enough. I like that this recipe doesn't use oil and uses a minimal amt. of butter. It's superb and is going to stay in my go to recipe file! Thanks again for sharing it. One loaf doesn't last long, back to making more!!!! :)"
"This loaf is delicious! So Peachy & tender!!! My son is not a pecan fan, so I omitted them & made a glaze out of brown sugar, water & vanilla to drizzle over top. Will definitely make this again."
"My family was a little underwhelmed with the peach flavor in this recipe....even though we used fresh, ripe peaches. The consistency was right on though and we enjoyed the extra crunch of the topping. Probably not going to be a go to recipe, but was nice for a change of pace."
"We have some glorious peaches, in SC. This year, we are rolling in them. I found this recipe, but tweaked it just a little. For my topping, I used Brown Sugar & 1/2 cup of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal (Almond). The results are outstanding! I immediately baked a second loaf & put it in the freezer. This will be going in my recipe box. It's a keeper!!!"
"Sounds yummy! Does this have a nice strong peach flavor?"
"Great recipe. I have made this bread three times in two weeks. I used less sugar and made into 3 mini loaves or 12 muffins. They all turned out beautifully. Friends and family love it. My new favorite!"
"Big hit at our house. I cut the sugar in half because my family prefers less sweet breads and I thought that with the sweetness of the peaches, 1 c. of sugar would be too much. We really enjoyed it."
"Fantastic! The recipe is right though, don't remove the loaf from the pan for 10-15 minutes!"
"This recipe is wonderful!! It is a great way to use up peaches that are starting to get to ripe. I have been using walnuts instead of pecans, since I had them on hand. My whole family loves it. My daughter wants me to make her some small loaves that she can give one to her "Volleyball Little Sister". We also have an exchange student form Germany. She wants to give them to her "Volleyball Big Sisters" too. She eats a piece every time she comes into the kitchen. She wants to take this recipe home with her when she returns to Germany."
