Introducing the delightful assortment of quick breads from World of Baking! These delectable treats are not only incredibly easy to make but also tantalizingly delicious for both bakers and food enthusiasts. Whether you’re seeking a morning dessert or a sweet indulgence, you can never go wrong with our selection.
Among the myriad breads we’ve crafted, our cream cheese-infused creations truly shine, boasting a wonderfully moist and rich texture. However, we recently embarked on a daring adventure by combining cheese and peaches to create a cake. It was about time we took this leap of faith.
To honor the fleeting season of fresh peaches, we present to you a recipe that incorporates canned peaches, ensuring you can relish this scrumptious bread throughout the year.
Of course, if you happen to have fresh peaches at hand, we highly recommend utilizing them. Be sure to cut the peaches into small pieces to ensure even baking and a burst of peachy flavor in every bite. This recipe yields a generously sized loaf, and achieving an even bake throughout is paramount.
Now, let’s dive into the ingredients:
8 ounces (1 package) of soft cream cheese
1/2 cup of butter
1 cup of sugar
1/2 tablespoon of lemon zest
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)
1 cup of milk
15 ounces of canned peaches, drained and chopped
And here’s how you bring this masterpiece to life:
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and lightly grease a standard loaf pan.
In a large bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Gradually add the sugar, eggs, and lemon zest, beating the mixture until it becomes light and fluffy.
In a separate small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon (if desired).
Gradually incorporate the dry ingredient mixture and milk into the cream cheese mixture, stirring until well combined. Gently fold in the peach cubes.
Transfer the resulting dough to the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the bread comes out clean.
Allow the bread to cool before slicing. Indulge in the delightful flavors of our peach and cream cheese toast!
Enjoy this delightful creation from World of Baking, and savor the harmonious blend of peaches and cream cheese in every bite.
