video instructions available below 👇 


– 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 2 large eggs
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1/2 cup sour cream
– 2 ripe peaches, peeled and diced
– 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
– Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan, ensuring it’s well-coated to prevent sticking.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the sour cream, until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

6. Gently fold in the diced peaches and chopped nuts, if using, until evenly distributed throughout the batter.

7. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it out evenly.

8. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the top is golden brown.

9. Remove the loaf from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

10. Once cooled, dust the top of the Peaches & Cream Loaf with powdered sugar for a touch of sweetness and visual appeal.

11. Slice, serve, and savor every delightful bite!
