This sweet bread comes from Annie's Easy Recipes, and the original can be found here. It's a great way to use up fresh peaches that are getting a little past their prime, and it's really delicious. The bread is pleasantly sweet and has good peach flavor without being too sweet to have for breakfast. (Of course, I'm likely to eat cake for breakfast, but some people don't seem to like that so much...) The bread also has a nice, crunchy crust. Yum!
