Today I am sharing this peach oat quick bread. It is the sort of bread that you might eat for breakfast, or with a morning cup of coffee, or an afternoon break with some tea. Anytime, really. My favorite part is the streusel topping. I think I’ll find more reasons to bake muffins and breads with this streusel as it added a nice texture and finish to this bread. Try this recipe with plums, apricots, even berries.
Stone Fruit is this month’s topic– think about plums, peaches, apricots–will you join us? #Twelve Loaves is led by Lora at Cake Duchess and hosted this month by Paula at Vintage Kitchen Notes and Renee from Magnolia Days. Each month our baking group shares our creations and we hope you will link up your breads too.Print
Recipe adapted from this plum oatmeal bread
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1 cup chopped, peaches (about 2 large peaches)
- 1 egg
- 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
- 4 Tablespoon butter, cut into small cubes
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8 x 4 loaf pan with baking spray. Cut a rectangle of parchment and fit it into the pan such that the sides fold outside the pan. Use this to lift the bread out of the pan later on with ease.
- Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the oats and peaches, stir gently.
- Whisk the egg then add it to the buttermilk and the oil. Combine with the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour into the pan.
- Mix the streusel ingredients together; use your fingers to bring pieces of the streusel together into small bits (sizes of peas or slightly bigger). Pour into the batter and press it in slightly.
- Bake for 45 minutes then cool on a wire rack.
