Make it a tradition: As summer transitions into fall, consider swapping the peaches for diced apples or pears. The addition of warm spices like nutmeg and cloves transforms this loaf into a cozy autumn delight.


Tips for Success:

  • Don’t skip the greasing and flouring of the pan. This ensures easy removal and prevents sticking.
  • Test for doneness using a toothpick. If it comes out clean, your loaf is ready.
  • Allow the loaf to cool completely before slicing to prevent it from crumbling.
  • For longer storage, freeze individual slices, wrapped tightly in plastic wrap.
