carrot peach bread

At work we have what's called Turn which was the end of July 1st week of August.  I haven't made many things for work lately but thought that since there are a couple of new people helping us this year it might be nice for them to have a pick up treat.  They work really hard and fast during this time, which consist of about 4 hard days.  I wanted to make some sort of quick bread but also wanted something with carrot.  I found this recipe and adapted it a bit.  I am going to make a banana bread next for the head painter, have to keep him happy.  :)

3/4 cup chopped pecans
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 1/2 cups canned peaches, drained (can use fresh)
3/4 cup freshly grated carrots
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup greek yogurt (or milk)
2 large eggs, lightly beatenDirections:
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring halfway through. Cool 15 minutes.
  • Stir together flour, sugars, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in a large bowl; add peaches, carrots, vegetable oil, milk, eggs, and toasted pecans, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter into a lightly greased 9- x 5-inch loaf pan.
  • Bake at 350° for ~1 hour or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack, and cool completely
Hope you try this, it sure is yummy.  Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week and Always remember to Find the time To DO ALL the things YOU L♥ve.
