  • Place peaches, peach juice and 6 tablespoons sugar in a blender; puree until smooth.

  • In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla. Blend this mixture into the flour mixture, alternately with the peach puree; stir just to combine. Fold in the nuts. Pour batter into prepared pans.

  • Bake at 325 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a loaf comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pans; turn out on rack and let cool completely.

Unfortunately this bread was a flop. The batter tasted good but was way too runny more so even than cake batter. It looks like the recipe calls for too little flour which is a shame. I would have liked it to work out and it was a waste of good peaches. Read More

Rather than using canned peaches I pureed two large fresh peaches (about 20 ounces) and added this to the batter. It worked perfectly. Read More

I cut this recipe in half (and used a 15 oz. can of sliced peaches) and the bread did fall but has a wonderful moist texture and yummy flavor! Sort of a pumpkin/pear/pumpkin mix. Different but good especially warm with butter! Read More

More of a cake than bread. It was very very very moist and it was difficult to wrap them to give as gifts because they were so soft. I will probably make again but reduce the amount of peach juice and add something to hold the bread together better. Nevertheless a very tasty bread Read More

Wish I would have read the reviews before making this.This is way too runny.I agree with cutting the juice.It looked like alot of batter so I divide it by thirds so it would not run over in the oven.Unfortunealty the bread fell drastically a few minutes after baking.Needs more flour.This did not taste as peachy as I would have liked But I would make again with more flour less juice.

I think this is really good bread.I did make a few changes.Instead of canned peaches I used 2 cups of fresh peaches and instead of putting them in the blender I just chopped them up and drained most of the juice off.I also added about a half teaspoon of almond extract because I like the flavor with the peaches.I did not have shortening so I used canola oil instead.I made 4 mini loaves and before baking I sprinkled a little brown sugar on the tops.I left the nuts out because we don't care for them in bread.My husband and I both really loved this bread and he said it reminded him of peach cobbler.

Very moist and tasty. However- even after reading the other reviews and draining the peaches it was so runny that I ended up baking it for an extra 20 minutes to get it done. Finally done- yum. Worth it just worried in the middle there. LOL Read More
