Recipe Box, Peachy Pecan Bread

I had 2 juicy ripe summer peaches that needed to be used

so I decided to make a peach and pecan quick bread,

inspired by a recipe on my bucket list this month

I love quick breads because they are made with pantry staples

They’re easy to assemble and will fill your kitchen

with tempting aromas while they’re baking

Flour, sugar, baking powder, confectioners sugar,

almond and vanilla extracts, milk, pecans, eggs, butter

and peaches!

Cream the butter with the granulated sugar

Then add the wet ingredients,

mixing well and then add the dry ingredients

Next fold in the peaches and pecans

I used honey roasted pecans that I bought at the grocery store

Another tasty choice would be Buttery Praline Pecans

Transfer batter to a well greased 9″ x 5″ loaf pan

Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes,

then cover top with foil to prevent further browning,

and continue to bake for 10-20 more minutes until the center is done

Place pan on rack to cool for 1 hour then invert pan onto a plate

and continue to cool bottom side up

When loaf has cooled,

make a simple glaze with confectioners sugar,

almond extract and milk

{I actually used Almond milk creamer

because I used up all the milk I had making the batter}

Drizzle glaze over bread, slice and enjoy!

    Oh, man, this looks fabulous. And you know a Georgia Gal like me definitely has peaches on her counter so the wonderful smell will waft through the kitchen.
