Brandy Peach Bread  is a recipe that beckons to two opposite seasons. Slices of fresh peach are soaked in brandy, evoking the tastes of mid-summer and and chillier days of winter when a jigger of brandy can warm the soul and soften the spirit.

Brandy Peach Bread Recipe

A slice of bread with peaches

I put this brandy peach bread together on a hot August summer day. With fresh peaches, a hot oven, and a gaggle of hungry boys, I thought this would be a good recipe to put together. Although I made this in mid-summer, it can be be enjoyed mid-anytime.

This brandy peach bread recipe is easy to put together. Don’t have fresh peaches? Not problem. Canned or frozen will substitute well, just make the sure they are drained well before adding to the batter. Of course the shot or two of brandy is optional in this bread; you can skip it all together or substitute it for a spirit of your choosing. Let us know how you like this one, we love to hear from our readers!   -Dan

  1. This sounds like its right up my alley. Good peaches are one of my favorite summer fruits — and I love them in pies and ice cream. I have to admit, I’ve never tried them in breads before, but why not? Love brandy in there too — bet it would work with bourbon or rum as well.

  2. There are two different references to peaches in the ingredients list, but only one in the instructions. Does the 1 cup of marinated fresh peaches go on top? The pictures make me think this, but they aren’t mentioned in the directions. Is the bread baked with these on top or are they added after baking? The instructions need to specify which peaches (fresh or canned) are to be folded in and then what to do with the other peaches. The recipe sounds great, otherwise. Thanks! Thanks

  3. I love the sound of this bread!!! I have to say, those beautiful peaches have me dreaming of summer! Very much looking forward to making this one soon!
