Spiced Peach Nut Bread

First, I want to apologize for not sharing as many recipes lately.  Summer, travel, full-time work, dieting and getting my oldest ready for college - I just haven't been cooking as much!  I have posted about 300 recipes  over the past couple years.  I hope you will still search the blog for a new idea.

A friend of the family in Marshall shared this yummy recipe several years back.  Diane is a great cook and an awesome friend to my mom.  Diane said I could share this recipe with you.  Enjoy!

Spiced Peach Nut Bread

2 cups flour
2/3 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 Tbsp butter, melted
16 can sliced peaches, diced (reserving 1/2 cup juice)
        ( can use peaches with syrup or in own juice)
1 cup chopped pecans

Powdered Sugar glaze (made with peach juice and powdered sugar)

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix all ingredients with a mixer - beat for two minute at medium speed.  Pour into a well greased loaf pan.  Bake 60-70 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Immediately remove from pan - cool completely.  If desired, drizzle with glaze.  Wrap tightly or store in an airtight container in refrigerator.
