Peach Bread

Use your favorite banana bread recipe. This is from my classic Joy of Cooking.


Substitute peaches. I had about 2 cups of my tiny peach halves but they would have smashed down to 1.5 cups or so. I also added some ginger. Also I had 1/2 cup of shortening, so I used it all. What would I do with the leftover 1/6 cup?? And did I measure the lemon rind? No, I just zested most of a lemon.

I could never write a cookbook because I am always doing things differently. 


But for me, it generally works out. It was popular. And delicious for breakfast, too.

Oh, yes! They keep telling me cooking and baking is a science. I keep breaking the rules. Rock on!

This is my favorite quickbread! I have some peaches I canned a few years ago that still need to be used up --today or tomorrow, I'm making some peach bread!

I never thought to substitute peaches for bananas in banana bread. Genius! I used to have a nectarine tree and I had to come up with a thousand ways to eat them. This bread would have been perfect!
