Nectarine Raspberry Bread

I'm baking again with my ladies from #Twelve Loaves! The theme for this month is Stonefruit.  The peaches and apricots and nectarines at the market have looked fabulous lately and I was so excited to make my bread! This bread was fabulous right out of the oven and though I was skeptical at first it even tasted great cold.  Double score! Wohoo :) I loved the pairing of the nectarines with the raspberries.  I might just need to make another loaf...

Nectarine Raspberry Bread

1 1/2 cups flour, divided
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 tsp lemon zest
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 medium nectarines, peeled pitted and coarsely chopped (3/4 cup)
1 tsp Turbinado sugar (or granulated sugar)
1/2 cup raspberries

1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup candied almonds, chopped

Preheat the oven to 350˚ F. Wash and prepare the fruit.  


Lightly sprinkle the turbinado sugar over the nectarines and stir to coat.  

Add in the raspberries.  Set aside.

Add the sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt to a mixing bowl.  

Stir to combine.  

In the bowl of a kitchen aid add the coconut oil, lemon zest, and lemon juice and beat until smooth.  

 Add the sugar mixture to the coconut oil and beat for 2 minutes.  

Add the eggs, beat well until combined.  Mix in 1 cup of the flour.  Sprinkle the fruit with the remaining 1/2 cup of flour and add.  

 Using a large wooden spoon or a rubber spatula fold the fruit into the quick bread batter.

Pour the bread batter into a well greased (and floured if desired) loaf pan. 

In a small bowl combine the brown sugar and cinnamon.  Then stir in the chopped almonds.  

 Sprinkle evenly over the top of the loaf.  Bake for 50-60 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Remove the pan to a cooling rack.  

Allow to cool for 15-20 minutes in the pan before removing the bread from the pan to slice or to cool completely.
