Peaches are some of summer’s tastiest gifts to us. Highlight their juiciness and flavor by baking them up in some peach quick bread.

Peach bread is an easy and beautiful baked good, perfect for easy Sunday brunches or even summer desserts.

Easy to Make Batter

There’s nothing fancy going on here. Melted butter and basic staple ingredients pull together quickly enough to make the batter.

Do peel and chop the peaches. Use purchased slivered almonds to make the topping easier and skip chopping almonds for the batter itself.

Almonds are Optional

This peach bread recipe will work without the almonds. Don’t run out to the store just to get them. However, they do add a nice flavor and crunch. The topping also makes it even more beautiful but again, optional.

Double, if desired

Because this is so very easy to make, consider doubling or more the recipe. Simply divide among more loaf pans. This way you can share with friends or family and even bring some to a potluck.

Serving Ideas

Keep it simple, serve slices with some fresh fruit and iced tea.

A dollop of whipped cream or even a scoop of ice cream would be nice as well.

Drizzle the bread with a bit of a vanilla glaze for an even sweeter dessert.

Freeze Extras

The bread freezes easily and well, which means you can save some for when peaches are no longer in season.

Simply place cooked and cooled loaves into airtight bags and freeze.

Alternatively, slice the bread and freeze slices in airtight bags. Freezing slices allows you to just grab what you need instead of an entire loaf at one time.

Use up frozen bread within 6 months for best flavor and to prevent freezer burn
