A Nectarine loaf Cake with Brown sugar Crumble Topping

I have a feeling in my water , that loaf cakes are going to be the bake of Autumn 2021 , so with that I am going to roll with it

This time I have shown you a recipe adapted from Sally’s Baking Addiction, Her Peach Quick Bread has been revised here to Gluten Free and Vegan, and is also Nut and Coconut Free

Its turned out to be a delicious bake and well worth the calories

One of those cakes that gives you a hug

Whether his is Breakfast, Elevenses, lunch or dessert that’s up to you, but served warm with Custard it hits the mark too

I’ve used Nectarines here , mainly because it was what was on offer at the supermarket , and the growing season is coming to an end , for fruit that tastes like fruit !!!

So that’s my switch up reason….nothing fancy just practicalities

Nothing to prepare in advance with this cake….just what you hopefully have available

So with that lets crack on !!! ( With no eggs harmed !! )

Fruity Seasonal Spice Delight !!

  11. Using a knife, swirl the batter down the center of the loaf pan.
  12. Sprinkle crumb topping on top evenly
  13. Bake for 60, covering loosely with foil about halfway through to prevent the top from over-browning.
