From Diane Siniscalchi (Ringwood, NJ): “I used fresh peaches. Out of all the Amish Friendship Breads I have baked so far, this has to be the nicest smelling when it’s baking. My kitchen was filled with the delicious scent of cinnamon and peaches. The bread was moist with a nice texture and light peach flavor. This recipe is going in my recipe box.”
