To make it explicit:
... but I would prefer to speak in German.
..., aber ich ziehe es vor, deutsch zu sprechen.
The additional word lieber, as mentioned in the other answer, is wrong in my opinion as you could translate your phrase to
..., aber ich würde lieber deutsch sprechen.
which is also correct, but combing the solutions is like filling up your sentences with superfluous words like actually or just repeating yourself.
The first solutions seems to be more eloquent and should be preferred in writing, the second solution, however, is what most people would say in a regular conversation.
