Nectarine Beer Bread

I love making beer bread. Why not take it up a notch! So here I added nectarines, maple syrup and cinnamon.

Nectarine Beer Bread

2 large nectarines (2 cups)
3 c. bread flour
3 TBSP. turbinado sugar or any dry sugar of your choice
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of extra fine sea salt
1 12-oz bottle beer
1 1/2 TBSP.  + 2 tsp. pure maple syrup
1/4 tsp. pure vanilla
dash of cinnamon
pinch of extra fine sea salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. With non-stick cooking spray, lightly coat a regular size bread pan.

-In a medium saucepan, fill about 3/4 with water and bring to boil. Blanch the nectarines for 1 minute and remove. Cool enough to handle.
-Peel the skin off the nectarines. Seed and chop both nectarines.
-In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon & salt.
-Add the chopped nectarines and coat well.
-Pour the beer and 1 1/2 TBSP. of maple syrup in the flour/nectarine mixture. Combine well.
-Add the batter to the prepared bread pan.
-Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour until poke test comes out clean. Take out of oven and slightly cool.
-Combine the 2 tsp. of maple syrup, vanilla, a dash of cinnamon and salt. Brush on top of the bread.

Cut and enjoy!   I like to sprinkle more cinnamon on my individual piece.
