“It's too hot to bake and I wanted something sweet. Taking my cue from the Bread Machine Applesauce Granola Bread that I had left and some peaches that needed using up, I built a fun and tasty dessert sandwich. Brioche or challah bread would probably work well as would other soft fruits. Experiment with what you have on hand. The results might surprise you!”

Ingredients Nutrition
