I love to make quick bread and I love peaches. This is a great combination. I love making it during peach season. Yum! But, you can also make it with canned peaches.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Have extra peaches that are about to go bad? Use them in this delicious quick bread. The crunchy cinnamon and pecan crumble on top complements the soft and moist bread. There are bits of peaches in every bite. We bet you could even serve these as muffins or bake in a Bundt pan. An easy-to-make treat for any peach fan.
