Delicious--I changed it up a bit and added substituted crushed granola for the pecans in both the batter and the topping--that worked beautifully and satisfies those who don't care for nuts but still like a bit of crunch.

Tastes great! But like others, I did not find a pronounced peach flavor. I used a heaping cup of peaches. It was a good way to use up bad grocery store peaches. I made my bread into muffins. It made a dozen muffins which I baked for 18 minutes at 375. I also used vegetable oil instead of butter as I do with all my muffins. I couldn't find my pecans in the freezer so used almonds as suggested by a reviewer and a little more almond extract. I also used a topping of cinnamon sugar instead of the brown sugar.

A very moist bread but the pecan flavor shines through much more. I actually used nectarines because that's what I had on hand. Added a bit of nutmeg as well. Nice but probably won't make it again.

Something different! It does taste like peach cobbler. I added about 1/2 cup peaches and was glad I did. (My peaches didn’t have a lot of flavor). It makes a very, moist bread. Be sure to let it cool completely before cutting or it will crumble. An easy, delicious recipe—most time-consuming part was prepping the peaches.

Excellent texture, taste and a great use of fresh preaches when you have to use a few. Received an “excellent” from critical cook husband.

I made this bread yesterday and used 2 cups of jarred peaches. Absolutely the best fruit bread I've ever had!!!

This was delicious, but like the majority of reviews, it did not have a strong peach flavor — even doubling fresh Georgia peaches! I added cinnamon to the crumb topping and used toasted pecans. It was like a moist, crusty outside tasty pecan bread with hints of peach. But a super good breakfast, snack delight!!

I agree with others, the peach flavor doesnt shine through with the amount of peaches listed....even with using fresh, ripe peaches. I also added cinnamon. Love the overall tetxure and topping crunch. Nice summery baking recipe, but would play with amounts to brighten flavors.
