When it comes to baking, quick breads have to be one of the tastiest and easiest options out there. Equally appropriate for a breakfast treat or a dessert, there’s really no going wrong. And some of our very favorite loaves we’ve made have included *cream cheese* in the batter resulting in the most moist and rich texture. We hadn’t yet tried a Peach & Cream Cheese Loaf and felt that needed to be rectified.

Peaches & Cream Cheese Loaf

  • 8 oz cream cheese (1 package), softened
  • ½ cup butter, 1 stick
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • ½ tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ¼ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 15 oz can sliced peaches, drained and diced
How To Make Peaches & Cream Cheese Loaf:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and grease a standard bread loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Add sugar, eggs, and lemon zest and beat until light and fluffy.
  3. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Once thoroughly combined, slowly add the dry ingred*ents and milk to the wet ingred*ents and fold in the peaches.
  4. Transfer batter to the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-55 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Let loaf cool before slicing.
