Peach Jam Quick Bread

Recipe by Marie

This wonderfully moist bread has peach jam mixed into it and makes two loaves so you can freeze one for a later time.

I had very high hoped for this quick bread. Unfortunately, it lost it in terms of flavor. It was very moist, and sweet, but the flavors were not very discernable. If I were to attempt this again, I would try it with raspberry jam and raspberry exctract to try and perk up the flavor a bit. But overall, a very boring bread, and not really worth playing with. The recipe also only makes one 9x5 loaf- had I divided the batter between two pans, I would have ended up with flat loaves. The bread also doesn't "dome" if that is an issue for you.
