Peach Bread

This is a great quick bread recipe! I cut the peaches into chunks instead of slices, just makes for a more even distribution of fruit. This doesn't last long at our house!!!

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 cups fresh, sliced, Grossen peaches
3 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate,
(thawed and undiluted)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cream butter; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Combine next 5 ingredients; add to creamed mixture alternately with the peaches, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Stir in orange juice concentrate and vanilla.

Pour batter into a greased and floured 9- x 5- x 3- inch loafpan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes; remove from pan, and cool completely. Yield: 1 loaf.
