Peach Bread - Mother Thyme

Last weekend was our first weekend to the Farmer’s Market since May, crazy!  This summer has been flying by and every weekend we have been busy or out of town that we have been unable to go.  The kids and I headed there on a beautiful morning.  I have to be honest, with two three year olds at a busy Farmer’s Market I was a little scared going myself.  I am always so worried one of them will run off.  They don’t like to ride in a stroller.  They like their freedom and would rather walk. 

With a firm grip on the twins, we ventured into the Farmer’s Market.  It was bustling with vendors and a variety of fresh produce I couldn’t wait to get my hands on, including some ripe peaches.  I always go for the seconds if available, which are great for cooking.  With a bushel of peaches and the kids in hand we made our way to my favorite blueberry vendor before heading out.

I couldn’t wait to make peach cobbler and a grilled peach salad with poppyseed dressing, some of my favorite dishes I love to make every summer.  Recently when I was at Wegmans, our local grocery store they were sampling Peach Loaf which is out of this world.  I actually remember trying it last year and remember how delicious it was.  Each bite was not only filled with chunks of fresh peaches, but the bread itself had a lovely peach flavor to it. 

This recipe for Peach Bread is very similar in flavor and texture to the one I tried at the grocery store, if not better.  It is so moist and delicious, perfect for dessert or with your morning coffee. 

If you have fresh peaches on hand, you need to try this bread.  I’m sure you will fall in love with it as much as I have.

  1. I’ve never seen peach gelatin used like this. Your bread looks divine and streusel makes everything a hit. I remember when my twins were three. Everything was an adventure for them and me. Have fun. It goes way too fast! Even though they are almost 23, I can still entice them to the farmers market, at least when they visit!

  2. Thanks a lot for this helpful recipe. I was looking for it and discovered proper instructions here in this post. Peach bread is a delicious food treat and I’m about to make it by following above mentioned ways. Cheers… 🙂

  3. I am wondering what the purpose of the gelatin is, is it for thickening or for taste? As a vegetarian I don’t eat gelatin, but this bread sounds really delicious. Thanks!

  4. I can’t wait to get our CSA box and more peaches and try your recipe. We recently tried the peach bread at Wegmans (delicious!) and I am on the quest to recreate it. I tried a recipe this weekend, but it wasn’t nearly peachy enough. I love the second half of summer! Thanks for sharing.
