How to make it

  1. Toast pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan for 10 minutes, do not preheat the oven. Turn the oven on to 350 degrees F and place pecans in oven while preheating. They are perfect after 10 minutes. Cool. Chop.
  2. Prepare pans. Either use no-stick spray or grease and flour 3 9×5″ loaf pans
  3. Stir together flour and the next 6 ingredients in a large bowl.
  4. Add oil, milk and eggs to a large mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly. Then add sugar and mix again.
  5. Incorporate dry ingredients into wet ingredients quickly. Do not over beat.
  6. Now you can chop peaches. Peel peaches with a paring knife and chop into chunks.
  7. Fold in peaches and toasted pecans, hand stirring just until moistened.
  8. Pour batter into prepared pans. Fill 2/3’s full.
  9. Bake at 350 for 1 hour 10 minutes. Test for done-ness. When a long metal or wooden toothpick is inserted in the center comes out clean, they are done. Cool in pan on a wire rack 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack and cool completely.
  10. To freeze; cover with Plastic wrap and then with aluminum foil or freezer paper. The crust will not be as crispy after they are thawed.

Notes

General Baking Tips:
Always measure dry ingredients with a dry measuring cup. Measure with dry measuring cups or weigh dry ingredients.
Always measure liquid ingredients with liquid measuring cup
Never break eggs directly into recipe ingredients. Break eggs into a separate bowl, in case you get any shells, so that you can pull them out.
Make sure that you know what temperature your oven is set at. Buy an oven thermometer and check oven temperature regularly.
Always check baked goods, like cakes or quick breads with cake tester, placed in center. If the tester comes out clean, it’s done.

  1. This looks fantastic Beth. Peaches and pecans are a great combo, especially for busy mornings. I’d grab a slice of this with a cup of coffee or tea for sure.

    1. Thank so much Michelle! I just ate the last piece this morning with my coffee! I may have to make another batch! 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    This is perfect timing: my kids are starting back to school next week, and breakfast is always a rushed affair. A grab-n-go strategy is just the thing! This quick break looks amazing: I can’t wait to give it a try! (And snarf some down with my morning joe!)

    1. Haha! Yes mornings are hectic with the kids back to school! Thanks for comment, Michelle! I hope you kids enjoy it!

  3. 4 stars
    When do you add the sugar? It states sift flour and next 6 ingredients, which does not include the sugar. I would think that you should add it with other dry ingredients.

    1. I’m so sorry, Billye! I updated the recipe. The sugar is added to the wet ingredients and then the flour mixture is added! Thank you for pointing that out!!

  4. I’ve never had peach bread in my life, but with how much I love banana breads and apple breads, I really feel like I’m missing out. This is gorgeous!
