  • 1/2 cup of vegetable or coconut oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup finely diced peeled fresh or frozen peaches or peach puree* approximately 2 large or 3 small
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup pecans chopped, you can add a few more if you love pecans


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Use a non-stick baking spray with flour to grease the bottom of a large loaf pan. Do not grease the sides of the pan. Or, you could grease the bottom with butter and then sprinkle a small amount of flour on the butter. Tap the pan on the counter to evenly distribute the flour and pour out any excess.
  • Add the sugar and oil to a large bowl and mix well.
  • Add the eggs, sour cream, peach puree or chopped peaches, and vanilla, mix well. Add the flour, baking soda and salt to the mixture a little at a time and mix well. Add the pecans and mix well to combine.
  • Pour into a prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-55 minutes or until the sides of the cake just start to pull away from the pan, or when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean with no streaks


  • You can finely chop the peaches, use your food processor to puree them or mash them with a potato masher. However, if you use your food processor, be careful not to over process them, you still want small pieces of peach in the puree.
