Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Fold in peaches.
2 cups fresh peaches, pitted and diced

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter a 10-inch tube pan or two loaf pans and dust with white sugar.

    YUM!

    I love anything made with peaches. I’ve tried several other versions of this, but none of them ever came out looking nearly as moist and peachy as this!

    Thanks for sharing!

    This looks incredible. I got just enough peaches off our tree to make one or two of these – perfect timing. Thank you for sharing!
