I gave this recipe 3 stars. This is really good. I decided to use the butter and not shortening. I didn't add the nuts as my future hubby doesn't like nuts. I didn't really taste the peaches in this bread but it was still very good. My future hubby said it didn't matter it was still very good. I have a copy of this recipe. My copy of this recipe is called Louisiana Peach Loaf. My copy is slightly different it calls for 1/2 cup butter instead of shortening. The rest is the same. Thanks for posting a good recipe.

This was a great easy recipe. The bread was very moist and nice and sweet with a wonderful mild peach flavor. It was especially wonderful just out of the oven with butter melted on it.

The bread was very good. I used 2 cans of sliced peaches (drained) and left out the 6 Tbsp. of sugar since this is the middle of January and no fresh peaches at a reasonable price. This has gone into my cookbook.
