Peach Bread

I was at a friends house recently and she had oodles of peaches and gave me 3 bags of peaches to do something with. Time wasn't on my side to make freezer jam like I had hoped. Church needs kept me crazy busy for most of the week. I found a recipe for bread and for muffins. The kids really liked the bread, so when I was at the commissary, I picked up more peaches. As I was cleaning off the counters last night I noted they weren't going to make it much longer so I made a couple more loaves of the bread. The bread seems like more of a spice bread to me because you can't taste the peaches at all. They are visible but they don't seem to really add anything to the bread. Still, another loaf is gone. I froze the other one for a later time.

1t salt
1/2t baking powder
1C chopped pecans

4T chopped pecans

Cream butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in water, oil and extracts. Stir in peaches. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and baking powder; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Stir in pecans. Pour into two greased 9-in. x 5-in. x 3-in. loaf pans.

Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
