Peach Cobbler Bread

I developed this recipe to take advantage of our wonderful Georgia peaches. My husband, Andy, says it tastes just like peach cobbler.

    Really good. Used applesauce in place of butter, Splenda in place of sugar, increased peaches to 2 cups unpeeled, and used sliced almonds with with brown sugar topping. Very moist yet dense. 50 minutes was just right.

    Made this yesterday and turned out pretty darn good! Taking into consideration other comments that said it lacked a lot of peach flavor, Instead of water I used 1/2 C. peach juice from an extra peach I had. And I used about 1/2 C. more diced peaches than recipe calls for.

    Delicious--I changed it up a bit and added substituted crushed granola for the pecans in both the batter and the topping--that worked beautifully and satisfies those who don't care for nuts but still like a bit of crunch.

    Tastes great! But like others, I did not find a pronounced peach flavor. I used a heaping cup of peaches. It was a good way to use up bad grocery store peaches. I made my bread into muffins. It made a dozen muffins which I baked for 18 minutes at 375. I also used vegetable oil instead of butter as I do with all my muffins. I couldn't find my pecans in the freezer so used almonds as suggested by a reviewer and a little more almond extract. I also used a topping of cinnamon sugar instead of the brown sugar.

    A very moist bread but the pecan flavor shines through much more. I actually used nectarines because that's what I had on hand. Added a bit of nutmeg as well. Nice but probably won't make it again.

    Something different! It does taste like peach cobbler. I added about 1/2 cup peaches and was glad I did. (My peaches didn’t have a lot of flavor). It makes a very, moist bread. Be sure to let it cool completely before cutting or it will crumble. An easy, delicious recipe—most time-consuming part was prepping the peaches.

    Excellent texture, taste and a great use of fresh preaches when you have to use a few. Received an “excellent” from critical cook husband.

    I made this bread yesterday and used 2 cups of jarred peaches. Absolutely the best fruit bread I've ever had!!!
