Ingredients For This Easy Peaches and Whiskey Loaf Recipe

All-purpose Flour

Brown Sugar or granulated sugar

Eggs – You want to have your eggs at room temperature in your peaches loaf.
✦✧Pro Tip To warm eggs, simply put them in a bowl with warm water (not boiling) for 10 minutes.

Sour Cream or Mayo (you won’t taste it, promise)
✦✧Pro Tip The secret to moist loaf. Indeed, the ingredients found in mayo (eggs, oil, and vinegar) actually boost the moisture and fat in your loaf recipes.

Canola Oil

Baking Powder / Baking Soda
✦✧Pro Tip Use FRESH baking powder and baking soda! They start losing their power after 6 months!

Cinnamon and Nutmeg

Whiskey – Any type of whiskey will do, I used Malpe-infused whiskey because that’s what I had at home already. So Yummy!

Fresh Peaches – This recipe works best with fresh peaches.

Pinch of Salt – Don’t skip the salt as it enhances the flavor of all the other ingredients.

2% Milk

Confectioner’s Sugar

How To Make This Peaches and Cream Whiskey Loaf

Step 1 – In a mixing bowl, combine your fresh peaches with the whiskey and cinnamon. Mix well and let the mixture marinate while you prepare the loaf.

Steps 2 and 3 – In two separate bowls, mix the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients. You want to use two separate bowls to make sure the baking powder and baking soda don’t react too soon.

Indeed, if you mix the wet ingredients immediately in the same bowl as the dry ingredients, your bread might not rise as high.

Step 4 – Mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients until well combined. Be careful not to overmix your batter as this can alternate the baking powder and baking soda’s reaction.
Yup! It’s OK to have a clumpy batter

Step 4 ½ – Strain the juice from the marinated peaches and mix it with the batter. We don’t want to waste that good whiskey!

Step 5 – Fill the bottom of your loaf pan with the mixture

Step 6 – Add your marinated peaches to your loaf pan and cover with the rest of the batter.

Step 7 – Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown.

How To Blanch Fresh Peaches

Cut an X at the bottom of your peaches

Place your peaches in boiling water for 1 minute

Immediately place your hot peaches in ice water until they cool down

Peel your peaches!

How To Store Your Peach and Whiskey Loaf

You can easily store your peaches and whiskey loaf in the fridge for 5 days in a closed container or wrapped in plastic.

Can I Freeze This Peach and Whiskey Loaf For Later?

Yes! You can tightly wrap the loaf in plastic wrap and place it in the freezer for up to two months.
