Georgia Peach Bread

3 cups sugar
1 cup butter, room temperature
4 eggs
4 1/2 cups pureed peaches
4 cups flour
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla or almond extract
up to 2 cups finely chopped almonds or pecans, optional

Cream sugar and butter.  Add eggs and mix well.  Add peach puree and mix well again.  Add dry ingredients, then add extract and nuts, if you wish.  Pour into loaf pans or 2 9x13's that have been well greased and floured.  Bake at 325 for 55-60 minutes for bread or 30-40 minutes for 9x13's. Check and do the toothpick test.  Cook until done.  Let cool for five minutes, then remove bread from pans. Let bread or the 9x13's cool on a cooling rack until cold. Wrap bread or cover 9x13's and store until the next day.  Bread will freeze well for two months. 

Yield 4 loaves or 2 9x13 pans
