Cooking with Alicia and Annie: Peach-Pecan Bread

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!

Peach-Pecan Bread (recipe from Annie's Easy Recipes)

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh peaches
1 T lemon juice

1/3 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/3 cup chopped pecans

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan.
2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine the peaches and lemon juice. Pour the oil, milk, vanilla, and eggs into a two-cup measuring cup.
3. Add the oil-milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir gently until just combined. Fold in the peaches and pecans, and then pour into the loaf pan.
4. Bake 55-60 minutes until a tester comes out clean.
