My husband gave me a basket of ripe peaches to take care of, so I found this recipe. I should note that I haven't baked for awhile. After blanching, peeling, and slicing, I had 9/12 cups. This recipe calls for canned peaches, but I forged on anyway. First I increased the recipe by 4. I used whole wheat flour for half, white for the other. I beat the eggs and butter together first, and since I like spicy peaches, I doubled the cinnamon, added nutmeg, used allspice in place of the cloves, and substituted 3 T fresh ginger (in the squeeze bottle) for the dried. When I started mixing the eggs&butter into the dry ingredients (still hadn't added the peaches) it seemed too dry, so I quickly mashed 2 cups of the peaches to hopefully take the place of the syrup I didn't have. Tasted the mix and realized I'd forgotten the sugar. I reached for the jar and found I was 1 1/2 cups short. <br/><br/>At this point I went into What-The-Hell mode. I dumped in the sugar I had, added all the remaining peaches, and dug deep into my overflowing bowl with my big spoon trying to stir it all. I was thinking that the chickens would enjoy it when I roughly divided it between two 8" square pans and one 9X 13. It looked fairly wet but tasted ok. Baked it and--it's pretty darn good! I don't recommend my method, but the recipe certainly stood up to abuse and produced a decent fruit bread. I'll be freezing it in portion sizes for breakfast. Thanks!

I made this for my Mah Jong ladies luncheon yesterday and everyone LOVED it! I chopped the peaches and thought this was very moist. I think this is a recipe I used years ago and lost, so thanks for posting this here! Easy and delicious!!

Finally tried this recipe after printing it ages ago. Liked the fact it was low in sugar and fat. I used peaches with no sugar added, (recommend chopping peaches) It was done baking in 50 minutes. I was not thrilled with it the first day but, after sitting overnight in a ziploc it became very moist. Needs a little more spice next time. Thanks, will try it again and play around with it a little.
