Easy, Moist Peach Bread

A less common fruit bread, this easy, moist peach bread is perfect for dessert, breakfast, or all on its own!

Course Breakfast, Dessert, Snack
Cuisine American, Southern
Keyword easy, fruit bread
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Servings 1 single loaf pan


  • 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


  1. Before starting, set out butter to soften

  2. Preheat oven to 350° and coat loaf pan with cooking spray

  3. Cream butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl -- using the paddle attachment with a Kitchenaid stand mixer makes this process simpler

  4. 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.

  5. Add mashed peaches to the mixing bowl.

  6. In a separate bowl (can use the same bowl the peaches were mashed in), beat two eggs together. Add to the mixing bowl.

  7. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt and add to mixing bowl.

  8. Add cinnamon and vanilla and mix until all ingredients are combined.

  9. 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.

  10. 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 😉

    Do you have a trick for peeling the peaches? I’m wondering if a quick boil/ice water shock would work like with tomatoes?

      Hi Katie, Yes, that same method works for peaches, as long as they are ripe enough. It does not work if they are too firm (learned from the experience, haha!) Hope you love the peach bread as much as we do!
