Is there any food more closely linked with Georgia than peaches? In the recipe below, sweet peaches are combined with baking spices and brown sugar for a quick bread that's sweet enough for dessert but mild enough to be delicious for breakfast, too.
The secret to success with this recipe is choosing ultra sweet, ripe peaches. Most of the time, that will mean cooking with canned peaches rather than fresh. Paired with crunchy chopped pecans, truly ripe peaches add a lovely texture and flavor to the finished bread.
