What’s In Our Peach Bread?
If you constantly get struck by the familiar scent of freshly baked bread, but keeps guessing what goods are producing those fragrances filling the kitchen, we’ll let you in on the secret.
Aside from the basic ingredient for baking such as flour, eggs, sugar and baking soda, these are the main ingredients that makes a delicious peach bread:
- Peaches – This juicy yellow-orange fruit with bright red skin does magic. Fresh peaches would be a lovely option, but if peaches don’t grow in your area you can make peach bread with canned peaches instead.
- Cinnamon – The flavor of the strong and tempting smell of cinnamon goes beyond its aroma. It’s tangy, and earthy flavor blends well with the sweetness of the peaches.
- Nuts – This fruit adds a woody and neutral flavor to our sweet bread. It’s light and it looks so good scattered around the bread after being baked.
5 Tips In Making Peach Bread
Take note of these smart tips on how we can make it more delicious just right for your taste buds.
- Choose the right peaches. If you’re going to use fresh peaches, use ripened peaches to get that fresh sweetness you’re looking for and make sure it’s not overly ripened.
- Don’t peel your peaches. Peaches’ flesh is naturally sweet. Some cooks opt to peel them before adding them to the dish, but the skin tastes mildly sweet and tangy as well adding a good flavor to your bread, plus it adds a popping color of red in your bowl.
- Do the batter. Make sure everything mixes properly. A stand mixer would help to achieve that silky batter, but electric beaters work perfectly fine too.
- Add sugar. For extra sweetness and crunch, you can sprinkle some sugar on top of your batter mix before baking.
- Lastly, you wait. Peach bread batters are thick and it needs more time than the usual batter to cook through, so if it’s still wet, wait until it’s fully cooked and risen.
