I am a sucker for fresh juicy peaches, especially during the height of peach season. Living in Arizona, we do not often get the freshest produce, but one thing we do get every summer is the famous extra sweet peaches from Utah that ripen in late July/early August. I have a friend who brings bushels of these peaches back from Utah and when she does, I go crazy baking pies, tarts and of our favorite recipes, this Blueberry Peaches & Cream Quick Bread.
Blueberry peaches & cream quick bread is a light summer loaf-style quick bread chock full of fresh blueberries and peaches. It’s a little taste of summer in your mouth! Delicious for breakfast or an after-dinner snack, blueberry peaches & cream bread is quick and easy to make and can be made into muffins instead of the loaves, if you prefer. Honestly, the only reason I did not make muffins is that I hate to lose half the muffin to the paper muffin wrapper that always sticks to the batter. I do not like to wrestle to get my food. #lazy 🙂 The “cream” comes from the buttermilk, which gives the bread it’s light and airy texture and tangy-sweet taste. If you don’t have fresh peaches, I am sure this bread will be *almost* as good with drained canned peaches.
