Hey all– I just can’t resist picking over the piles of peaches and nectarines every time I hit the market. It’s one of the best parts of August (compensation for the heat??!). We’ve been eating them every day.
Here’s a little loaf I baked, for friends who came to brunch this week. And I found it it’s even yummier toasted in the toaster oven the next day–sweet and peachy ad crunchy around the edges!
PEACH PECAN BREAD
1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
2 large peaches, peeled, pitted, cut to chunks
2/3 cups sugar
1/4 cup whole milk (or half & half)
1/4 cup canola oil
2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 to 2 tab. whole milk or half & half
Peel and cut up the peaches. Set aside. Chop the pecans. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, stir together the sugar, milk, oil and eggs. Then mix in the flour, salt and baking powder. The batter will be a bit dry. Then fold in the peaches and pecans until it is thoroughly blended.
Spoon the batter into a standard 9″x5″ loaf pan (or I used two smaller half size pans). Pop them into a 350 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes, until a sharp knife inserted comes out clean.
Let the bread cool 20 minutes (or more) and the whisk together the powdered sugar and milk for the glaze, and drizzle it over the bread. Slice & eat!!

Hey Lisa thanks!! Loved your mermaids!! So whimsical! Is it starting to cool down there yet?? We’re still eating ice cream and trying to catch a cool breeze! hugs!
Would never have thought to make break with peaches, although I must say I don’t want to waste a Canadian peach on bread. The season is too short.
It IS too short. I’m eating so many peaches because I know pretty soon they’ll be gone… hugs friend.
You already know I’m 100% on board with this.
Thanks friend–can’t get enough peaches right now.
This is going on my MUST TRY in capital letters, list!! Oh gosh, I just picked up the most gorgeous peaches, too. But they are supposed to go in my Rumtopf!!
You Rumtop!! I don’t know if I’m dedicated enough to make that– but I’d sure like to try it!! You are amazing Mollie!! It’s true! xo
I was dissapointed because I somehow just missed the fresh apricots all together! But other than that I’ve been keeping up. The peaches did go in…Oh gosh is it boozy, though! #alreadysampledabit! lol!
Sounds delightful Mollie!! We really didn’t see many good apricots here this year– so maybe it’s just as well. Can’t wait to see what you throw in next! xox
Perfect– I sure wish I could taste this amazing concoction when it comes December!! You’ll have to give us a full description! xo
A winning flavor combo! -Kat
