How to Make FROSTED PEACH POTATO HARVEST BREAD

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease bottoms and sides of 2 loaf pans, 8 ½ x 4 ½ x 2 ½ -inches,
    with vegetable shortening, lightly flour; set aside.
  2. Mix ½ cup butter and brown sugar together in a large bowl, until blended and creamy. Stir in eggs, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie spice, molasses, buttermilk, vanilla, 1 cup flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together with sweetened butter mixture until blended and smooth. Gradually add remaining 1 ½ cups flour until blended and smooth. Stir in peaches and 2/3 cup pecans. Divide batter evenly between prepared greased and floured loaf pans.
  3. Bake 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in loaf pans on wire cooling rack. Loosen sides of loaves from pans; remove from pans and place top side up on wire rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  4. In a medium bowl prepare cream cheese frosting. Beat cream cheese, 2 tablespoons butter,powdered sugar, vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon milk with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Add remaining tablespoon milk if needed for creamier consistency. Frost loaves lightly with ½ cup frosting on top of each loaf. Sprinkle over frosting of each loaf evenly with remaining 1/3 cup pecans. Using a sharp serrated knife, cut each loaf evenly into 10 slices. Store any leftover bread in air-tight container.
