Fresh Peach Cobbler Bread Recipe has a crusty top, tender center, and is loaded with sweet, juicy peaches! The white chocolate ganache is poured over the bread while it’s still warm and seeps into every nook and crevice.

The quick bread is good for breakfast, brunch, dessert, or snack. I prefer it warm but it’s good at room temperature too.

Fresh Peach Cobbler Bread Recipe

  • The first step to making this peach bread is preparing the loaf pans. I like to rub shortening all over the pans until the bottom and sides are covered. Then, dust the pans with flour. This should allow your bread to be removed easily!
  • I used a 9×5-inch loaf pan and baked it for about 45 minutes. The top will be golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean or with dry crumbs.
  • Next, when making quick bread (and muffins) do not over mix the batter. Overmixing will develop the gluten and make the bread tough. You want to combine the wet ingredients. In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients. Then, you can mix the wet and dry ingredients together along with the peaches.
  • You can serve the bread with or without a glaze. It’s really good served warm!
  • Worth noting as well, you can make this with fresh, frozen, or canned peaches. (see chart below.)

White Chocolate Ganache

I poured White Chocolate Ganache over the peach bread while it was still warm. This allowed the ganache to seep into the bread.

Ganache may seem like a fancy word and difficult to make. However, I assure you it’s super simple to make.

I heated heavy cream in the microwave until it was warm. Then I poured it over white candy melts and whisked the mixture until it was completely smooth. Next, I poured the ganache over the fresh peach bread. Fabulous!!

Alternately, you can make a powdered sugar glaze if you prefer.

How many peaches does it take?

Powdered Sugar Glaze

  • Puree 1/2 cup fresh peaches.
  • Next, whisk the peaches with the almond extract and powdered sugar. (I used almond extract in the glaze because that’s what I used in the bread. If you used vanilla in the bread, use vanilla in the glaze.)
  • For the powdered sugar glaze, I turn the bread out onto a wire rack. Then I allow it to cool 5 to 10 minutes. While it cools I mix the glaze.
  • If you pour this glaze on immediately when you remove the bread from the oven, it will pretty much melt and all runoff.
  • This glaze is very thick. If you need to add heavy cream or milk, add 1 tablespoon at a time and whisk until you get the consistency you want.
  • You can omit the glaze or ganache altogether if desired.
  • If you use peaches in the glaze, you’ll need to store the bread in the refrigerator.

  1. Do you pour the ganache over it while it is still in the pan? Or do you remove it from the pan first?

  2. Hi Paula,
    Not seeing anywhere in directions are the fresh peaches peeled? So excited to try this recipe!
    Thanks, Gina

  3. I made this bread with adjustments for my diet since I am a diabetic.
    I adjust the sugar to 1/2 cup of Anthony’s Erythritol (I generally add less as it is very sweet for my taste) with the fruit already in it plus I always use unsweetened applesauce in place of oil as well. I followed the recipe for the rest of the bread recipe. I used no sugar added white chocolate chips and heavy cream for the topping. It turned out well assuming it is a dense bread, my son gave it the thumbs up too.
    I get to eat it with a little less guilt with the cut in the sugar.
    Maybe next time I will try some alternate flour if I get brave lol. I was thinking the topping might be good with almond bark and heavy cream also.

    Thanks for the recipe peach cobbler is always one of my favs!

  4. Does this bread freeze well? I would like to make it now for the holidays.
    Thank you!

      1. When you freeze it has it got the glaze or ganache in it? Or do you put a small amount in a bagging and freeze separately?
