Apple Peach Bread

Recipe by DailyInspiration

If you can't decide between apples or peaches - you don't have to! This bread combines the best of both. Recipe is from my What's Cooking in New England Cookbook - a wonderful gift from my cookbook swap partner this year.

I liked this combination of fruit and nuts. I used Jonathan apples, nectarines and pecans. The bread was a bit oily for me and in that sense it tasted more like a muffin than a bread. I paid attention to JackieOhNo!'s review and used smaller bread pans and it came out looking lovely. I had to cut it a little hot (as there was company eager to eat it) so it crumbled some on cutting. Everyone liked the bread a lot.
