I have been dying for some peanut butter bread lately, but baking...in July? Well, it usually doesn't happen. But seeing as how it's been in the mid 70's the past few days, I figured I might as well bake to my little heart's content!
This is a dense bread, but that's perfectly okay with me! (It means I'll eat one slice instead of one loaf per sitting.) But mine has to have jelly on it. Grape to be exact. But you could top it with any other flavor of jelly or preserves, butter or Nutella...oh, I never thought of that until now. I just may have to bake up another loaf while it's still cool (& double check to make sure I still have some Nutella in the cupboard).
Peanut Butter Bread
- 2 C. all purpose flour
- 1/3 C. granulated sugar
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 egg
- 1 C. milk
- 3/4 C. creamy peanut butter
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder & salt. Using a hand mixer, carefully add the egg, milk & peanut butter until just combined. (Batter will be thick.)Pour batter & carefully spread into a greased loaf pan. (Mine was an 8x4in.)Bake at 350º for 50-60 min. or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool for 10-15 min. before removing from pan to a wire rack to finish cooling.
