Blueberry-Peach Bread...for "Twelve Loaves"

I decided to make some fruit filled bread, since we are in the midst of the summer season, with plenty of summer fruits available and at such cheap price. Blueberry happens to be one of my all-time favorite berries, and to combine it with juicy ripe peaches, is the first time for me...although I have seen it on other food
bloggers site.


If you love banana bread, or any fruit bread...you cannot help, but fall in love with this amazing peach-blueberry combination! The recipe is really just based on my banana bread recipe, that I know by 'heart'...just a few adjustments, and substitutions...here-and-there.

You're probably wondering what is the 'Twelve Loaves' about in the title?...well, it's a baking challenge created by my daughter Lora. I'm happy to join along as a hostess this month. I am happy to contribute, which I am doing now, this 1st homemade bread as the "blueberry challenge"...as long as un-yeasted breads are accepted...which is this one is, I'm fine with it!

Just look at the golden color of this beautiful fruit bread, and you can see the moistness, as well. The glaze is a Limoncello glaze...a special bottle that was a gift for me from Italy. In the meantime...I still have a couple of mango recipes that I would like to post. I already made one of the best mango sorbets that  was gone in minutes, as soon as it set. That will be my next post. No step-by-step prep photos on this one either, you can  follow the recipe...its self-explanatory.

So, my baking friends...please join us baking this month!Look how easy it us to link your Bread with Summer Fruit!

Blueberry-Peach Bread
created by; Elisabeth

1 1/2 cups unbleached  all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup vegetable, or canola oil
2 eggs
1 cup fresh, or frozen blueberries
1 cup pitted, and diced peaches
1 cup peach pulp

For the Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tblsp Limoncello, or lemon juice

First thing; have your pitted, and diced peaches ready in a small bowl...set aside. In a large bowl, add the flour, the baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix together with a fork. In a medium bowl, break the eggs, and lightly mix together with the oil, and sugar. You can add the peach pulp, by adding about 3 or 4 pitted peaches to your blender, add abt. 1 Tblsp water to blend. (if you don't want to use this process with the peach pulp, you can skip it) you can use 1/2 cup orange juice, in place of the pulp.

With a plastic spatula, or spoon, add the wet ingredients to the flour mixtures. Add the pulp, or the orange juice, slowly and fold in. Lastly, add the fruit, folding in carefully, not to break it up.

Preheat oven at 350 degrees F....bake for 25 minutes. Lower the temperature to 325 degrees F. and bake for an additional 35 minutes longer, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool on rack for at least 30 minutes. Mix the glaze ingredients, and drizzle over the top. Cut in slices...so very good!

  10. Wow,,,,perfect looking bread,the color and glazed tell it all "delicious" great post Elisabeth !!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh, this is such a dreamy bread! The peach and blueberry combo was great in my pie...and now I'm craving it in a quick bread. And limoncello glaze is the perfect topping! Beautifully done, my friend. I'm off to visit family next week, then moving Nick to college...maybe I'll have time to make a bread and join you. I might need some baking therapy after Nick leaves :(

    Hope you're having a nice week! xo

  12. So very beautiful! I love the glaze on the top as well. Normally I'd skip any extra sugar stuff, icing, frosting, glaze but this is just so pretty and I know limoncello flavor will compliment the bread wonderfully.

  16. Hello Elisabeth! This loaf looks absolutely amazing and I love the idea of Lora's challenge. I have fallen off the blog roundabout lately but will make every effort to hop back on again. Hope you're well x

  17. Oh Elizabeth, This sounds amazing and looks incredibly delicious! My grands are coming to visit next week and I’m sure this would be a big hit! I even have peaches and blueberries in the house. Thanks for a great recipe! I love quick breads!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Your bread looks beautiful, Elisabeth. I love the combination of peach and blueberry, even though I bake both together and separately rather in light tarts when the weather is hot. It's so funny because I have just had some blueberries and peach separately. I love both raw and baked.

    ReplyDelete
  19. How wonderfully creative of you to make a fruit bread as enticing as this one. The limoncello glaze is gorgeous and must add such a nice addition to the overall flavour.

    ReplyDelete
  20. My goodness! Your bread looks beautiful! And with the Limoncello glaze... come on, you know you had me! Brilliant.

  24. Elisabeth, ez gyönyörű! Imádom a banánkenyeret is, sajnos még nem sikerült egy igazán jót sütnöm :)
    Ezt a receptet feltétlen kipróbálom. Köszönöm!

    ReplyDelete
  25. ÓÓÓÓÓ Elizabeth, csodálatos lett a gyümölcskenyered!!! Kétségem nincs, hogy mennyei finom lehet. Na most én nyelek ám itt jó nagyokat.:))) Jó sok gyümölcsöt tettél bele, és az a máz a tetején....Eddig soha nem sütöttem gyümölcskenyeret, mert mindig azt hittem, túl száraz a tésztája. A múlthéten aztán elkészült nálam az első, és annyira ízlett, hogy hamarosan újrasütöm.
    Leveled megkaptam, és ígérem holnap válaszolok rá. Puszillak

  46. What a lovely combo! Blueberries and peaches, and I could see both of them in your bread, so clearly. I would love a slice filled with these juicy fruits. I was just telling Sandra from Sandra's Easy Cooking that I have such a huge love for bread, that I need to switch to whole meal if I am consuming them on a daily basis. LOL.. Have a wonderful week ahead and thanks for coming over again ;). Huggsss, Jo

  47. Hi Elisabeth,
    i deleted my earlier comment as Ira (my younger one) typed some random letters, as she was sitting on my lap while I was typing :D.
    Well M really sorry for not being in touch last couple of weeks. What can I say??? My schedule's gone totally haywire since I've joined the college. Also my kiddo's not keeping well (happens every year in the monsoon season) :(. But m really lucky to have such supportive, encouraging and inspiring bloggo-circle. Thank you for putting up with me even if I go "off" sometimes :D.
    Your loaf looks simply amazing. The peaches and blueberries are really the "star" in your loaf. Love the theme. Will try to bake something for the entry.
