Fresh peaches really shine in this Peach Yogurt Bread with Cinnamon. Yogurt keeps it moist and healthy – a perfect light treat for summer!
I love peaches. They are my absolute favorite fruit (strawberries are a close second) and I really can’t get enough of them in the summer when they are so sweet and juicy. Growing up in St. Louis I was always so excited when the Eckert’s (a local farm with all kinds of fresh fruit) peaches were in season. I actually brought a bag of them back with me from St. Louis last week! Now that is dedication. Or obsession…
I used to avoid recipes involving peaches because thebetterhalf claimed he didn’t like them. I can’t bake things he doesn’t like, because then I end up eating the whole thing! This summer I decided to make him try a bite of peach because I didn’t understand how he could not like a food that I like so much. And what do you know – he likes peaches now Bring on the peach recipes!! I made a delicious Peachberry Buckle a few weeks ago and this past weekend I used my beloved peaches to make a lighter breakfast – Peach Yogurt Bread. This loaf is so moist thanks to a full cup of Greek yogurt. I love baking with yogurt! The cinnamon adds just a touch of warmth and sweetness that pairs so well with the peaches. We couldn’t get enough of this bread! However if you aren’t a peach lover, I think it would be great with berries as well.
