Week three of the St. jude’s Childrens Hospital Baking Challenge was bread week! Sweet, savory, single serve, or full loaves the challenge was to create a delicious bread! I decided on a sweet option, I have always loved dessert breads. It was the job of the grandkids every Thanksgiving to make a whole lot of yummy breads to be snacked on throughout the day! So, I got really creative and made this amazing peach cobbler bread and topped it off with an equally amazing white chocolate ganache glaze!
I used fresh peaches, and added an almond extract instead of vanilla. I’m not joking when I tell you all bread should be THIS bread! 😂 It is delicious!
Here is what you’ll need:
4 peaches peeled and chopped to 1/2in. chunks
¾ c. sugar
½ c. buttermilk
½ c. oil
2 large eggs
1 tsp. Almond extract
2 c. Flour
2 tsp. Baking powder
½ tsp. salt
1c. Quick oats
1/4c. Brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 375°F, grease and flour a loaf pan and set it aside.
In a large mixing bowl combine the eggs, oil, buttermilk, sugar, and almond extract mix well on medium speed. In a separate bowl combine flour, salt, and baking powder, stir together with a wire whisk. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl a cup at time until well combined. Finally fold in the chopped peaches with a spatula. Poor into the prepared loaf pan.
Combine the oats, butter, and brown sugar to make a crisp topping. Add to the top of the bread batter. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50min or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
When the bread is finished. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. While it’s cooling make the ganache glaze. Here is what you’ll need.
1c. Whole milk or heavy cream
2c white chocolate chips
Heat milk until just bubbling, remove from heat and pour over the chocolate chips. Whisk vigorously until combined. Pour over the top of the slightly warm bread and allow it to soak in. Allow the bread to cool completely, cut and Enjoy!!
