Peach Bread with Cinnamon Crunch Topping

This quick and easy peach bread is a summer recipe must! Each bite is filled with bold cinnamon flavor, studded with fresh peaches and topped with a cinnamon crunch topping.

Save this recipe for a great summer breakfast treat with a cup of coffee.

This time of year I try and make as MANY peach recipes as humanly possible.

I love peach season and for good reason! There’s nothing quite like biting into a juicy peach on a warm summer afternoon and have the juices just ooze out! My absolute favorite pie is a peach blueberry pie.

While I could absolutely eat a slice of pie for breakfast (and I have) I do enjoy a thick slice of this peach bread with a cup of coffee on a summer morning.

The Cinnamon Crunch Topping is a must! 

The cinnamon crunch topping is my favorite part of this peach bread! If you’ve ever had a cinnamon crunch bagel from Panera you know how AMAZING the cinnamon crunch topping is.

Spicy from the cinnamon, crunch from the sugar, and compliments the peaches SO well!

If this isn’t your jam, you could also try a quick glaze with 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and a few tablespoons of milk until it’s the consistency you like! Pour the glaze on top of the warm loaf after it’s finished baking.
