Georgia Peach Bread

I like quick breads, like their title they are quick, easy and versatile.   Adding fruit to a dessert adds great flavor and a nutritional bonus.  When I saw a recent recipe for peach bread, it sounded so good, I compared it to other recipes and tweaked it a bit to provide lots of peach chunks, pecans, cinnamon flavor and a moist bread.  Here is the finished bread, I did add a little too much oil, by mistake and it is very moist, almost falling apart- delicious still, so the recommended oil is listed in this recipe:

4 Tablespoons unsalted butter (1/2 stick), room temperature
1/8 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 15 oz can peaches in light syrup, drained, diced into small pieces
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
cinnamon and sugar for sprinkling

Cream sugar and butter and oil together until light and fluffy.  Add egg, mix thoroughly.  Add peaches and vanilla.  Add dry ingredients and nuts.  Stir until blended.  Pour into 1 5X9 loaf pan that has been sprayed with baking spray, sprinkle the top with a mixture of cinnamon sugar, I used 1 tsp sugar to 1/4 tsp cinnamon.
Bake at 325 for about 50-55 mins or until toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool a bit before removing from pan.
