Bread Week: Honey Fruit Bread
Around here I've always got over ripe bananas coming out of my ears. I put them in the freezer and then forget them, but sometimes I just need to space so I pull some out and set off to make bread. Don't get me wrong, regular old banana bread is fabulous, but sometimes it's just nice to take banana bread to a whole new level. So if you're going to that new level, why not go all out and make some fruit bread instead. This is just perfect for breakfast or a snack...If you like fruit try it and see!
What You'll Need:
2 peaches chopped
1 cup of blueberries
1/4 of a cup of organic cane sugar
1 cup of honey
1/2 cup fat free vanilla yogurt
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 heaping tablespoon of baking powder
2 cups of unbleached flour or white whole wheat flour
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a bowl toss peaches and blueberries with sugar and set aside.
In a large bowl cream bananas, eggs, honey and yogurt until relatively smooth. Stir in salt, baking soda and baking powder until well mixed. Next add flour and stir until just mixed. Add peach/blueberry mixture and stir until incorporated. Pour into two bread pans that have been sprayed with non-stick spray.
Bake for 50-60 minutes until loaves are golden brown and stick done.
Notes: You could use any type of fruit that you like for this bread. Strawberries would be really good, as would pineapple.
