{September 29, 2008}   Peach Bread (bonus recipe)

So someone posted this at the What’s Cooking Board awhile back (when I was still getting on the computer, LOL) and I’d kinda wanted to try it…

Georgia Peach BreadFrom Dickey Farms
3 cups sliced fresh peaches
6 tablespoons sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place peaches and 6 tablespoons sugar in container of electric blender; process until pureed. (Mixture should yield about 2 1/4 cups.) Combine flour, baking powder, soda, salt and cinnamon; set aside. Combine 1 1/2 cups sugar and shortening; cream well. Add eggs and mix well. Add peach puree and dry ingredients, mixing until ingredients are moistened. Stir in nuts and vanilla. Spoon batter into 2 well greased and floured 9x5x3-inch loaf pans. Bake at 325° for 55-60 minutes or until done. Cool 10 minutes in pan; turn out on rack, and let cool completely.

Yield: 2 loaves

Well my problems with trying it were many, but most chiefly now that I’m getting around to it I don’t have shortening on hand… so since the oven is sorta kinda working, I though I’d give it a go… I decided to just use a banana/applesauce bread as a foundation odding out the fruits…

This was snarfed down by all in the house and the baby really LOVED it… I never got around to getting a pic of the bread itself before it was gone I don’t think or else I’d show you one…
