A soft and squishy bread, stuffed with fresh peaches and cinnamon – this is a delicious treat. Easy to make, this Cinnamon Swirl Peach Bread is my new favorite!
This Cinnamon Swirl Peach Bread is a cross between a cinnamon roll, a fruited loaf and … something else. What it is, is, yummy. We all know I love cinnamon rolls. Did you also know I love peaches? They are absolutely gorgeous in the summer season, all the bright and fresh and sweet deliciousness, bursting with flavor. I thought, why not add some fresh peaches, and make it into a loaf? Why not indeed? You could adapt this for other fruits, I bet apples or pears would be awesome, too.
It is a little bit tricky to handle, the dough is super soft – but you can do it! Make sure you have plenty of room to work with, and you MUST line your baking sheet with parchment. Trust me, you’ll thank me. This will get you a very soft and yummy bread, with such a wonderful flavor. Enjoy!
