And welcome Great Harvest Warrenton Blackberry Peach Cobbler Swirl Bread!

I’ve had this baby in my freeze since wintertime and just thawed it out to try. Since we now have our own store I figured it was now or never to eat it up!

Heaven, I tell ya!

I was going to do French toast with this, but it was so doughy and soft that I didn’t want to mess up a good thing. Instead I piled it high with yogurt and fruit!

Cait’s Plate always mixes chia seeds with yogurt and makes beautiful French toast and pancake stacks, so that’s what I was going for. I hate it when yogurt “leaks” onto bread so I think the chia seeds helped to thicken and dry it out a bit. I also don’t like cold + hot mixed so that’s another reason I didn’t toast the bread. This turned out quite amazing!!

Today and tomorrow are going to be super busy to prep myself and the bakery for this trip. But one of the tasks on my to-do list is to get my nails done, so I’m not complaining!

Have a Sunny Monday!

Looks so yummy!
I received my open sky package first thing this morning right in time for breakfast.
C’ville Crunch is amazing!!!!
I also did not want to take away from the taste of the Cville crunch, so yogurt, chia seeds and banana were the perfect compliment!
Yummmmm!

Haha aw yay!! I’m so glad you enjoyed the fruit + yogurt over bread combo! :) I only wish I had THAT bread to do my combos with – Heaven is RIGHT.

Enjoy getting your nails done – I have that on my “to-do” list this week as well!

I love hot + cold — I definitely would have toasted up that piece of bread — it looks incredible with those fruit swirls!

I love yours and Cait’s plating qualities. Y’all seem to always make stack-able foods look so deliciously good and drool-worthy! :D

29 Erika @ The Teenage Taste August 1, 2011 at 10:05 am

That bread looks delicious. Doughy bread is the best kind! :-D
PS- Aren’t Cait’s meals delicious looking? Her meals, breakfasts especially, never fail to make me droooooool.

Wooooooow, that bread looks beyond delicious. Good call with the yogurt and fruit topping. Cait’s chia tip seems like it did the trick and the yogurt looks really really thick.
What a wonderful way to start the day. :) Enjoy the manicure!

The bread is too beautiful to be covered. I would keep it simple with almond butter and jam :)

But your display is prettier!

Stopped by the bakery for the first time this morning! After seeing such yummy pictures for so long I just had to try some Great Harvest myself. =) Had the carrot-walnut-raisin muffin at the recommendation of one of your staff (who was super friendly btw) and the muffin…oOOOOh yum! Can’t wait to stop by more often this upcoming year–I’m a UVA student!

Happy August! That bread looks incredible. I love soft and doughy (but I’d probably put a warm crunch around the edges). I never would have thought to use straight bread under a breakfast pile. :-)

And glad to see something pampering made it onto the official to-do list.

OMP! My GH needs that bread. ASAP! (I threw that last acronym in there to be extra annoying. FYI.)

Did you make that or buy it (the peach cobbler bread)? It looks absolutely sumptious and is a combination of all my favourite breakfast bread elements!

Bought it at GH Warrenton

I’ve been anxiously awaiting my Open Sky package and finally got it on Friday – Needless to say I had granola for breakfast on Saturday and Pancakes Sunday. My husband and I loved everything! It was just as good as I imagined :)

My good friend and I ADORE your writing, recipes and humor, and our husbands enjoy the benefits of great, healthy meals (they routinely ask, “is this a ‘blog lady’ recipe?’ ;). Thanks so much for all you do!

That bread looks amazing – were those chunks of peach baked into the bread? If they were, OMG that looks mouthwatering!

Reply

52 Ellie@fitforthesoul August 1, 2011 at 12:09 pm

just yesterday my fiance was saying how much he loves peach cobbler and that he’s determined to make it someday soon! :P Maybe if I find this bread he’ll be really happy :D It seems funny, but I too can’t decide whether to leave the doughy bread alone or make french toast with it sometimes.

Adorable ladybug napkin! That bread looks fantastic. It reminds me of the cinnamon nut bread my grandpa used to make when we visited them. It would always magically be baked and ready to be devoured!

Yay August! My birthday month! I will be turning (drumroll please)… 26!! ;-) I can’t wait for 8/8! :)

That loaf looks like an amazing combination of bread and Savannah bar! I do like a hot/cold combo tho, and probably would have toasted it. Those fruits look delicious, I’m silly and can never remember the color difference b/t cantaloupe and honeydew and which one I like best! Hehe :)

That bread looks delicious! And thanks for the tip about using chia seeds to soak up the liquid. I’ve never tried yogurt on top of bread/pancakes before because I’m scared of making them soggy!

Cobbler meets bread.

Bread meets cobbler.

Love meets…more love.
