Peach season may be on its way out but you still may be able to score some delicious, juicy fruit before summer has concluded. At the height of peach harvesting this year, we made the most delicious peach bread and while it’s taken a while to post, I’m finally sharing the easy recipe that quickly became a family hit and what will surely be a favorite for summers to come.

What Do I Need to Make Peach Bread?
The ingredients are simple and require only basic kitchen essentials. Here’s what to have on hand…
- 9×5″ loaf pan (you can also split the recipe in half and use two mini loaf pans, instead)
- KitchenAid Mixer (you can find lots of KitchenAid factory refurbished (made new again) mixers HERE — it’s where I found mine!)
- A few mixing bowls, measuring spoons, and measuring cups
- All purpose flour
- Ripe peaches
- Baking soda
How to Make Peach Bread
The process is simple and easy for anyone to bake successfully. The key is to make sure the peaches are RIPE — soft, fragrant, and juicy. You can find the recipe below and pin it for now, or save it for later!
Easy, Moist Peach Bread
A less common fruit bread, this easy, moist peach bread is perfect for dessert, breakfast, or all on its own!
- 1 C sugar
- 1 stick of butter, softened (8 TBSP)
- 5-6 ripe peaches
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 C all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
Before starting, set out butter to soften
Preheat oven to 350° and coat loaf pan with cooking spray
Cream butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl -- using the paddle attachment with a Kitchenaid stand mixer makes this process simpler
Peel peaches and remove the pit. In a separate bowl, chop and mash well. The more ripe the peaches are, the better the flavor will be.
Add mashed peaches to the mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl (can use the same bowl the peaches were mashed in), beat two eggs together. Add to the mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt and add to mixing bowl.
Add cinnamon and vanilla and mix until all ingredients are combined.
Pour peach bread mixture into the greased loaf pan and bake for 45-55 minutes, depending on oven speed. To check if the loaf is finished, use a toothpick by placing it inside the center of the loaf. If it is clean when you pull it out, it should be finished.
Enjoy! Can also be served with whipped cream or sliced on its own!
Peach Bread Alternatives & Add-Ons
Following the peach bread, we also baked a strawberry bread — honestly, I may have even favored it over the peach bread! I failed in documenting that process but we pulled it together almost identically to the peach bread — I’ll definitely share it in detail another time. A berry medley would also be delicious! You can add walnuts or pecans and can serve it as is, warm with butter, or with a dollop of whipped cream on top. Eliza devours it in its purest form 😉
