We woke up early this morning eager to bake a banana loaf of bread. I silently mashed bananas in my kitchen and watched the sunlight creep with the windows. After all to be perfectly honest all I wanted to accomplish was start Jay-Z’s 99 complications, sing loudly and change the lyrics to I got 99 problems but BANANA Breads AIN’T ONE!” Too bad my roommates were still sleeping or it totally would have happened.

Now that I think about it I’m kinda pleased I didn’t simply because I can’t state that rapping is one of my talents. And if you don’t know who Jay-Z is certainly then maybe we’ll just move ahead and discuss the real celebrity here: Banana bread. With peaches. Annndddd cinnamon. A brown sugar topping as well!
It simply makes me experience all cozy and wonderful.
Since you can find an abundance of peaches in August, I wanted to bring you a fun recipe. Needless to say peach pie is normally delicious and peach cobbler can be amazing but those are classics, and I wanted to bake something just a little innovative to cause you to swoon. The answer been staring right at me: ripe bananas on my kitchen counter! I don’t know, it’s like these bananas just beg me to be mashed into delicious breads or something. Or to be made into pie.
Either way I understand that anytime there are ripe bananas around, magic is going to happen. Hehe.
Look in that crust at the top from the banana bread! No seriously, stare at it for a good minute.
The crust is merely perfectly golden brown and the result of sprinkling brown sugar on top before baking. The brown glucose caramelizes and hardens when baked then forms a nice crusty exterior for the superb crunchy topping.
Oh and the inside? So flavorful and moist! Plus who is able to feel guilty about this bread? Not me taking into consideration I already ate 3 pieces.
This bread is downright sensational. The peaches add a juicy taste and a gorgeous addition to the top. Of course the bananas tend to be more prominent how the peaches flavorwise, but nevertheless the juicy bits of peaches shock you with every bite and the cinnamon really makes the taste pop.
I wanted to help keep this bread lower in fat and calories therefore i used minimal butter and non-fat greek yogurt. I didn’t have any whole wheat flour in my cupboard, or I would have used a few of that in the recipe instead of only using bleached flour.
