Brunch Breads - Recipe #3

Well folks, I'm sorry I missed posting yesterday but by the time I was able to do it I had a terrible sinus headache that wouldn't quit. So, the blogging had to take a back seat yesterday. I hate this time of the year because my allergies are always worse this time of the year. So, I've been taking sinus medicine praying it will keep me out of the doctor's office. I usually end up on an antibiotic for a sinus infection at least once a year.

But, as the disco era song goes, "I will survive."

Here is another recipe that I've made that tastes great and is perfect to consider for brunch. This would also make a nice hostess gift for this time of the year. And, since you use canned peaches it is nice that you can make this any time of the year.

Peach Bread

3 eggs
2 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups diced canned peaches,
drained 3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8 x 4 inch loaf pans.
2.In a large bowl, beat the eggs lightly. Blend in the sugar, oil, and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; mix just to combine. Stir in the peaches and nuts. Pour batter into prepared pans.
3.Bake for about 1 hour, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean

Shell, I am going to make this as part of my Christmas Tea Bread gift platter(s) for some of my friends. Thank you for posting -- and I'm sorry you've got sinus yuck.

I'm taking antibiotics now for the same thing.

How are your boys????

Thanks for the great recipes! Who doesn't love a good slice of sweet bread with a cup of hot steaming coffee (or tea)? The orange bread recipe really caught my attention.
I have posted an egg dish over on my blog.
Hope you got a decent night's sleep last night!
