This Peach Pecan Quick Bread with Caramel Glaze is a great time saver for busy Moms and Dads dealing with the hectic Back to School Season!
It is such an easy, fast treat for the kiddies when they come in the house after school and are ravenous!
I have been using Silk® nut milks since they became available in my area!
Now, they have come up with a shelf stable line that doesn’t require refrigeration until after it is opened. So I can keep a whole cupboard full of them and not take up space in my already overcrowded refrigerator!
The other thing that I love is that they come in smaller containers so that I don’t have buy a half gallon. The single serve containers are great to take with you when you are on the go! I just chill a couple in the refrigerator! The kids grab one on the way to school and all the cups in my house are not swimming around on the floor of their car!
My “Back to School” routine is not quite as hectic as it was when the kids were little. I don’t have to make them breakfast every morning but there is still all of the back to school shopping and running around.
The thing that I do need to have is tons of handy, quick foods for them to eat! (and they eat a lot!) With 17 year old, (high schooler) and 27 year old, (college) boys/ men (? Frightening, I’m that old! 🙂 ) in the house, as you can probably imagine, they don’t cook too much! It’s a grab-and-go operation!
This Peach Pecan Quick Bread is fast and easy for them to grab on the way out of the door in the morning. It’s also great when they get home because, if you have kids, you know they are starving when they get home from school!
It’s great for me because it is so easy and fast to make, it only takes me about 15 minutes active time. Then there is the added bonus of no dirty dishes to wash, when they wolf down some cereal and leave the bowl in the sink!
The caramel glaze on this Peach Pecan Quick Bread really kicks it up to a whole new level! And remember, it’s totally dairy free!
