What You'll Need

  • 2 cans (approx. 15 ounces each) sliced peaches, drained
  • 4 ounces butter (melted, cooled)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour, (all-purpose, 9 ounces)
  • 1 cup sugar (granulated)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Garnish: cinnamon-sugar, for topping

How to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan.
  2. Save 10 to 12 of the peach slices from the drained peaches and set aside for garnish. Process the remaining slices until almost pureed. You should have about 1 cup or just slightly more.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the processed peaches with the melted butter, eggs, and vanilla until well blended.
  4. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, salt, and the 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Add the flour mixture to the first mixture, mixing until blended.
  1. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Slice each peach slice lengthwise into two thinner slices and arrange them, overlapping, on the top of the batter. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon sugar.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven for about 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  3. Cool in the pan on a rack for about 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from the pan to cool completely.
