Celebrating seasons by its fruits is always welcome around here. Berries start us off in spring. Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, all pop up in stores starting already in late February.
Next come the stone fruits. Peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots and pluots first season picks mean summer is just around the corner.

Welcome to another delicious edition of #BreadBakers.

This month’s recipe challenge:
Use any kind of stone fruit – bread can include peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, mangos, etc. – in any form – juice, fresh fruit or dried fruit. P.S. Making jam to spread on your bread AFTER it’s cooked doesn’t count! It’s gotta be in or on the bread dough.

Thank you, Mireille  from The Schizo Chef http://www.theschizochef.com/ for hosting this event!

    What a beautiful loaf, Cindy! I’ll bet it’s even great toasted in a skillet a few days old. That, to me, is the sign of a great quick bread. :)
