Peach Crumble Bread

I’ve partnered with SocialStars and #WalmartProduce to create this Peach Crumble Bread.  Loaded with diced peaches and topped with a brown sugar cinnamon crumble, a slice of this bread is a great way to start a warm summer morning!

A slice of this bread is the perfect way to start a warm summer morning! #WalmartProduceNot to be outdone, my grandpa had equally fun adventures in store, too.  Like going fishing or collecting hickory nuts in the backyard (he used the hickory nuts on his rustic homemade smoker).  But my all-time favorite activity was jumping in the back of the truck and riding up to the local peach orchard.  I’m pretty sure I asked to do this daily!  My grandpa carried a little pocket knife with him and we’d literally sit on the tailgate of the truck and eat chunks of peaches that we’d just picked.  Oh, those were some good times back then!

Fast forward 25 years, and I now live in upstate New York…which last time I checked is a long way away from upstate South Carolina.  That means its also a long way away from the wonderful peach orchards, too!  (I did plant one peach tree in my backyard in honor of my grandpa, and I’m hoping to get my first fruit off of it next year.  Cross your fingers!)  I was in the produce section at Walmart the other day, and I noticed that they had South Carolina peaches.

Wait, what?  I brought my cart to a screeching halt!  Sure enough…there they were!  A whole bin of ripe, delicious peaches.  It didn’t take long before those peaches landed in my cart!  Walmart Produce has become my go-to source for delicious produce lately.  Their produce is fresh, farmer-picked and it has a 100% money-back guarantee…talk about a win-win-win!

A slice of this bread is the perfect way to start a warm summer morning! #WalmartProduceSo I headed home to decide what to make with my new-found peaches.  There was always the tried-and-true peach cobbler.  And then there’s Peach Shortcakes with Candied Ginger.  But I wanted to experiment a bit.  I’d seen an apple pie bread at a local bakery when my wife and I went down to Maryland a couple of weeks ago, and I wanted to create something similar.  But with peaches.  So I hit the kitchen and did some playing around…and the result was this delicious Peach Crumble Bread!  My wife says the texture reminds her of zucchini muffins…just in loaf form, and of course loaded with peach flavor.

If you ever get the chance to pick up some South Carolina peaches…do it.  I know Georgia is the “peach state,” but South Carolina’s peaches are just plain better.  These peaches that I picked up at my local Walmart took me back to the wonderful days of being a kid and picking peaches with my grandpa.  I know he would have loved this Peach Crumble Bread!

  3. For the Bread
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  1. *Looks around for a chair* Ohhh my… I need to sit down… I feel swoony!

  2. Your peaches look perfectly ripe and juicy. I bet this bread was delicious!

  3. You must have read my mind, saw some gorgeous juicy peaches and was just thinking that I don’t have enough recipes that include peaches. Now I’ve got one more.

  4. We have an overload of peaches over here also (they must be in season!) so this is a good idea! And glaze, you can’t go wrong with glaze.

  5. *Jaw Drops*

    David, this looks TOO good. I’ve been in heaven with all of the beautiful Louisiana peaches I’ve been surrounded by. This bread is the perfect recipe to put some of them to use instead of just eating them alone!

    Seriously, this bread got my mouth watering and stomach growling. Looks so perfectly moist (thanks for that slice shot) and the crumble topping looks absolutely perfect!

    • Why thank you, Graham!! I miss all of the delicious peaches (and strawberries!) down there in Louisiana. Hmmm…I bet this pread would also be tasty with strawberries. *making mental note* :-)

  6. What a creative recipe! I am loving peaches at the moment. There are so many around and they are perfect this time of the year.

  7. SC peaches are hands down ZE BEST (although I know a few people from Georgia that would disagree with my statement!) and you did a pretty awesome job showcasing them in that bread. Well done!

    • I will gladly take on anyone from Georgia who wants to fight about peaches! I lived in Atlanta for years, and while Georgia peaches are delicious…they just can’t compete with South Carolina peaches! Plus, I know you’ve got my back in that battle. That’s how the Wolfpack rolls!

  8. Why did I come here late at night? I’m drooling!! This bread looks amazing!!!

    • Hahaha…sorry Zainab! I take full responsibility for sending you to bed hungry last night. I’m such a bad, bad person. Please forgive me! :-)

  9. Those peaches look so beautiful. Great photo! I don’t think I have ever had peach bread before, but after seeing thees pictures…I want some now! Pinning

    • Thank you so much, Cindy! I’d never had peach bread either…but I saw it in that bakery in Maryland, and I knew I needed to make a loaf! :-)

  10. Don’t tell anyone, but I have yet to eat a good GA peach. Seriously, what is up with that?!?! It’s on my dang license plate, can’t I get a good peach up in here?!

    I am 100% sure that I wouldn’t care where my peaches came from if they were in this bread. It looks too delicious for words. Pinned!

    • Wait! How long have you lived in ATL now? You can’t avoid peaches there! I used to drive down to the State Farmer’s Market near the airport this time of the year…there were a couple of farmer’s who would always drive down from SC with truck-fulls of peaches. We’d grab a bushel (yes, an entire bushel) and nom nom them all. If you haven’t been to the state farmer’s market yet, you need to go! I’m so jealous you have that nearby…

  11. Loved the story about your grandparents. Those grandparents… they are freaking smart, aren’t they?! We have a few peach orchards here on the island that I love to try and visit once a year. Peach crisp for days after that! So glorious. But now I’m going to have to throw this peach crumble bread into the rotation. It looks SO good! #wolfpackeats for sure!

    • That bread definitely deserves a place in the rotation, Chris! I gotta say that peaches are probably one of my favorite summer fruits. There are so many to pick from…but peaches are definitely up there! Thanks, man!
