Peach Cobbler Bread

This is peach season at our house and we love peaches. I never thought of peaches in bread until I talked to my daughter who works at a bakery and they sell peach cobbler bread. I decided to try it and found a recipe on I of course made some adjustments and we are really happy with another way to use our peaches.

1/3 cup butter softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup peach puree
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups diced peaches
1 2/3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon

2 T. chopped pecans(I used walnuts and it tasted great)
2 T. brown sugar

In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugar. Add the eggs and beat well. Mix in the peach puree, diced peaches and vanilla. Then add the dry ingredients, flour, baking soda, baking powder and spices. Mix until blended.

Pour into a 9x5x3 inch bread pan. This makes a large loaf. Mix the topping and sprinkle on the top. Bake in a preheated oven set at 350 for about 45-50 minutes. I used a toothpick to make sure it was done. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

I think that you could make this with canned peaches and it would still be great. You might want to decrease your sugar a little if you did that.
