Peach Pull Apart Bread
Peach pull apart bread is an amazing recipe that is perfect for any occasion. This recipe consists of refrigerated biscuits and caramelized peaches, then baked to perfection and drizzled with glaze. The end result is a delicious and mouthwatering bread that everyone will love. If you are looking for a new and exciting recipe to try, then peach pull-apart bread is definitely the recipe for you.
To get started, I recommend that you gather all of the necessary ingredients. In this case, we’re using one large can of Grands flakey honey-butter refrigerated canned biscuits. Open the can and separate the biscuits into two equal-sized layers and repeat until you have 16 layers in all.
I also tend to use real vanilla bean paste, rather than vanilla extract. If you choose to use extract, you may need to add up to a half teaspoon more to achieve the same level of flavor that you would get by using Heilala Vanilla.
Cardamom is a spice that is native to India and has a sweet, floral aroma. It is often used in Indian cuisine to flavor curries and desserts. In the context of peach pull apart bread, cardamom helps to enhance the flavor of the peaches and balance the sweetness of the biscuit dough.
Additionally, cardamom has potent antioxidant properties that can help to boost the immune system. Therefore, using cardamom as a spice in peach pull apart bread not only adds flavor but also provides some health benefits.
If you’re out of ground cardamom and need a substitute for peach pull-apart bread, consider using allspice. Allspice is a spice that tastes like a combination of cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg so that it will add a similar warm flavor to your bread. The trick is to start small and taste to ensure the flavor isn’t overpowering.

Peach Pull Apart Bread
1 Large can of Grands flakey refrigerated biscuits (16 oz)
2 large fresh peaches, washed, pitted, and diced
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp pure vanilla paste
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cardamom
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1 Tbs Butter
Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat.
Then add the diced peaches, brown sugar, and all of the seasonings.
Cook over medium-low heat.
Stir occasionally and cook until the peaches have browned and softened and the sauce has thickened.
Set aside to cool.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a 9″x5″ loaf pan with parchment paper or spray it liberally with non-stick cooking spray.
Gently divide each biscuit in half by its layers, creating 16 biscuit halves.
Spoon about a tablespoon of the spiced peach filling onto each biscuit piece.
Stack the biscuit piece on top of one another, forming peach-filled short stacks.
Place each of the filled short stacks in the loaf pan, with the biscuit on its side, without allowing the filling to touch the sides or bottom of the pan.
Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove the peach pull apart bread from the oven and remove the foil, then bake the bread until it is golden brown (about 5-8 minutes)
Remove from the oven.
Let the loaf cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then gently grasp the sides of the parchment paper, lift the bread out and place it on a cooling rack to finish cooling completely.
While the bread is cooling, prepare the icing.
Spiced Cardamom Icing
Whisk together the powdered sugar and ground cardamom, then add all of the half and half, and whisk.
And the vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract and whisk again.
Drizzle liberally over the semi-warm loaf of peach pull-apart bread.
Peach Pull Apart Bread Tips-n-Tricks
It makes it easier to keep the stacks all together and neat by propping the loaf pan up on one end, slightly leaning back, like so:
Also, if the filling is not completely cooled, it will cause the biscuit layers to spread excessively, as you can see at the bottom of the stack in the photo above. It will not affect the cooking time, but for best results and even cooking, the filling should be room temperature before layering the bread.
